bed adhesive suggestions UM1

Recommended Posts

I eventually run out of my gratis blue masking tape... I noticed it was made by 3M so ordered some wider 3M blue tape. The original blue tape stuck like a mother and after every single print the blue tape would need to be changed as it would tare in the removal etc etc.

But the new blue tape (as well as trying standard white masking tape... and very expensive green 'frog tape') doesnt stick very well at all.

I have to use V05 hair gel spray to get a slight stick as well as a raft.

Im just wondering what you guys use to increase adhesion ?

ps..

I haven't got a heated bed.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
