BedPlate adhesion

Recommended Posts

I have been sucessfully printing parts for 3 months on the ultimaker 3. I have come back after a month of disuse and now prints won't stick. I have tried all the normal steps following the Ultimaker thread. Carrying out z alignment, using uglue , adding rafts brims and skirts. slowly increasing bedplate from 80-100 over 30 print attemps. i have played with print temperature and increased first layer thickness.Also slowing first layer print speed from 30 down to 12.I haven't played with flow.

I am printing colourfabb ngen and ultimaker natural pva. Its unsticking while printing cpe.

My current settings are print head 230,flow 101 build plate 85, intial layer height 0.25 fan 65% on a 0.4 aa core.

Does anyone have some combinations of settings that might solve this. The ambient temperature is the same as before, i don't understand why it isn't sticking.

    • "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.
