First print with PP on UM3E - impressive

Recommended Posts

Guys, this is awesome. To be sure I read everything about build plate adhesion, temperatures, enclosures, warping etc. just to find a nearly flawless print with default cura settings (except 100% infill, 3mm wall). I used the Advanced Kit with its enclosure and adhesion sheets. A cardboard case on top kept the heat. That's all. Wonderful.


Thank you, Team Ultimaker! :+1:


(The PP is a bit harder than TPU. Hard to rip apart. The brim is crumpled after removing it. And you will get a nice matte surface from the Adhesion Sheet. (No bed leveling after putting it on.:O) )

Yes, nice it is. Quite flexing. But cutting threads into it was not a pleasure - although it worked out, it was a crumbling action.


So once again: you have to find the right material for the right purpose. (And the right printing temperature/cooling/retract etc.. ;) )

    Ive been printing with PP all week now, it is a bear!  When it works, it does make some nice prints (I print for work, I am using the PP for these glue templates so that when they get too caked up with adhesive, we can just soak them in solvent).


    I have had it start to tangle in the extrude gear a few times, and other times the nozzle clogs up.  But no adhesion issues, thanks do those fancy UM adhesion sheets. :-)


     I have had the most success printing at 40mm/s and no retraction, with no other significant changes to the profile.
