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.

    • "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.
