Hi there,

I have really heavy problems with the adhesion on the Ultimaker 3. I'm using Colorfabb pla and tried different configurations (temp/fan), but nothing really works. Even with brim the object will not stick to the glass plate (not only warping). Only when I'm using very much of the pritt glue, it works sometimes. But the bottom from the printed object is not acceptable (for a 3k printer).

ABS is also impossible to print.

For my ultimaker 2 I'm using a specific printing plate and have no adhesion problems for over 2 years! Unfortunately I can't use them for the UM3 because of the auto adjustment.

There must be a working solution for this adhesion problem, or?

But please, I'll not spray my 3k printer with hair spray or other chemicals and won't also use a mixture from acetone and abs on the build plate ;)

    I had some adhesion issue too printing with Ultimaker PLA with no brim on just the glass. I bought the BuildTek flexplate system and it works great! Now I don't print with brim at all.

    The UM3 active leveling will account for the flexplate system. So that's not an issue.

    Did you apply the magnetic base to a glass plate? Or did you apply it directly to the heated bed?

    Yea I applied the magnetic base to the glass plate. The prints stick too well in some case :)
