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.


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

Or is Pritt just not strong enough?


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

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.


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