Print bed temperature sinks

Recommended Posts

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.
