Warping Issues

Hello everyone. I am trying to 3d print a part on my Anycubic Chiron. I am having trouble with the sides of the print warping which causes the whole thing to curl. I've tried everything recommended- glues, painters tape, heated bed. I've experimented with bed at 60, 65, 70, and 50 degrees, and the head temp at 180-190 degrees. nothing seems to help. I'm currently taping down the helper disks and it seems to be working, but i know i shouldn't have to do that. Any advice for this? I would really like some help. Thanks!

    In 99% of all adhesion cases, the bed/nozzle leveling is not correct. I guess you nozzle is a bit too far away from the bed and the first layer is not squished into the bed. Try to level closer to the bed and print again.

     

    I assume you use PLA, right?

    Yes, but it is not the nozzle, it is the leveling where you set the distance between nozzle and bed, so no need to replace the nozzle if that was your intention or understanding.

    And one more hint about leveling. When I level my printers I use a thicker piece of paper and bring the nozzle so close to the bed that I feel some good resistance when I want to move the paper under the nozzle. It should still be possible that you can remove the paper under it, but you should get the feeling that the nozzle would scratch on the paper. 

     

    Hard to explain, but after some iterations you get the feeling for it. But remember when the first layer don't stick well to the bed, then the distance is probably still too big.

     

    Additionally clean your bed with alcohol and if you have a glass bed, put a thin layer of glue stick on it. I usually make some stripes with the glue stick and then distribute it with a wet towel to get a very thin layer over the whole bed.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. 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. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. 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 select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        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 and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
