Using glue as an adhesive


Recommended Posts

Posted · Using glue as an adhesive

I've started trying to print with ABS, and it deffinetly needs adhesive.

So I tried glue (Pritt Original) but prints are still coming off.

Ā 

Is there a specific way to apply the glue? (I've just smeared it on šŸ˜„ )

Or is Pritt just not strong enough?

Ā 

In other words: How do you apply your favorite glue?

Ā 

Grtz.,

Alex.

    When I use glue, I apply it roughly and then take a wet cloth and spread the glue evenly and thinly on the printing bed.

    Ā 

    But for ABS I use 3DLac Spray or Dimafix. Only glue doesn't work for me with ABS.

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series Ā 
        New features
        Ā 
        Temperature status.Ā 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.Ā It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, theĀ Dump logs to USBĀ option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory.Ā 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 selectĀ Confirm removalĀ on the printerā€™s display. VisitĀ this pageĀ for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        Ā 
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method andĀ Method XLĀ printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning itā€™s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
