Build Plate Temperature for ABS

Recommended Posts

It can vary by brand. I don't normally print with ABS (I don't like the smell). I've heard Ultimaker ABS should print well with a 80 C bed temperature, but most other brands usually recommend 90 to 100 C. I'd also consider putting a door on it.

You can either change the bed temperature for ABS always on your printer by going into your Material profiles and editing it there on the printer, or you can adjust it per print by going into the tune menu and setting the bed temperature manually when your printer is heating up. Make sure to exit back out of the tune menu or your print won't start.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
