Major Jamb - first time using ABS material got an ER12C

Recommended Posts

So I got this message - but look at the photos - I managed to get the plate out, but no clue what I have to do to get this unstuck. Of course it is Sunday, so I cannot call MatterHackers (I bought from them), do not want to hurt it anymore than it is. Any suggestions or just leave alone until I can get MatterHackers on the phone??5a333aa51a27e_2017-05-1413_50_45.thumb.jpg.877c449a1c297be9dba7b7debfa0ea9c.jpg

Heat both nozzles to 150.

Get a hair dryer and heat the mess up. Pull it off with some tool such as toothpicks, small screwdrivers, needle nose pliers.

Also before you do any of that pull the head to the front of the machine. If it won't move, turn off power. It will move with power off.

The cause of this was probably that your ABS isn't sticking well to the glass bed. Try using "abs glue" (google it) or mix pva glue (glue stick or hair spray or elmer's glue) with water and spread it over the glass and let dry before printing again.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
