To cool or not to cool

Recommended Posts

I use this on an UM2:

- PLA: always on. Bed at 60°C.

- PET and NGEN: off when the model allows it (e.g. a thin flat model without overhangs), then it can be printed on bare glass. On at 40...50% if required to prevent overhangs from sagging, but then it requires bonding aids (dilluted wood glue or so) to prevent warping. Bed at 80°C.
