Printing Conductive ABS screw cannot screw tightly

    How do you mean soft?

    Could it be that because it is soft, it can not be screwed tightly?

    Do you mean the nut can not fit tight on the bolt, or are you trying to screw it in another object?

    Perhaps the material requires different cooling, and the cooling you used now influenced its dimensional accuracy? ABS in general has the tendency to shrink when it cools down too fast, hence you often see problems like warping and delamination with ABS.

    yup, cannot fit tight on the bolt..

    for normal ABS , it's no any problem.

    but for conductive ABS, cannot fit it tight. must use all conductive ABS.

    and did you know the actual temperature for the conductive ABS?

    this is different with other material. Have you tried it previously?
