Heated blue tape

Recommended Posts

Posted · Heated blue tape

Hi,

could not find an answer to this probably earlier asked question.

So, to avoid warping and to have a sometimes prefered non-shiny smooth surface at the buttom, does it help to print PLA on a layer of heated blue tape?

If so what is a good temperature to start with.

Thanks in advance,

greengecko

PLA will stick like crazy to Blue Tape on a heated bed. So just go your normal settings. The blue tape will get destroyed every time.

if you let the part cool off.. then reheat the bed, there is a point where you can pop the part off (before the PLA turns soft)

A heated bed with blue tape works like a charm. But you need to be sure not to press the PLA into the tape as you do with a cold bed with tape, else you will rip up the tape in notime.

Heated bed temperature for PLA is around 70C, but depending on your bed you need to experiment a bit.
