Recommended settings for PCL filament?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Recommended settings for PCL filament?

I'm using the Ultimaker Cura 2+, and trying to print with 2.85mm PCL without much luck so far. 

 

 

I was recommended 100-110 degrees print head on a 20%-30% speed but I'll have to adjust some more.. 

"Please rechange your teflon throat tube ,use a new nozzle and adjust print speed 20%~30%." was the quote by seller. 

 

 

 

 

Anyone had success with this material and care to share their settings? The printer I'm using is far away and I have it for a limited time when I book it, so I want to be as efficient as possible when testing

PCL has a very low Tg.  You might be able to print in the 65-85oC range.
