Print bed temperature sinks

Posted · Print bed temperature sinks

Hi, I'm using an Ultimaker Original+ (Printbite bed layer) with Cura 3.0.3 actually. Because of ABS (Real-Filament) it needs to be printed with a bed temperature of 110 °C. Although I set the print bed temperature in general and for initial layer to 110 °C it sinks after initial layer down to 100 °C. Is there another specific setting I have to do?

    For ABS an enclosure is a good deal to avoid warping and maintain the warm temperature with little variation. Keep in mind that the corners of the glass plate are always with lower temperatures as the center... in this topic (look at @tmostad posts) you can find some pics with a thermal camera of the glass plate with the heat variation on surface.

    I'm not a ABS user but I  think that 90°C is enough to print with it.

        This update is for...

        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
