Build Plate Temperature for ABS

Recommended Posts

Posted · Build Plate Temperature for ABS

I’ve read numerous replies as to what the best build plate temperate should be for ABS. However where do I check what the build plate temperature on my UM2+ will be and if need be, how do I change it?

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.
