CPE+ adhesion help


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · CPE+ adhesion help



New to 3D printing.

I've been trying to print CPE+ black on my UM2+ connector with air manager without success. The base of my print keeps lifting on the sides.

I assume its an adhesion problem.

I'm using Magigoo original on the glass. I have tried brim and raft. and it's still lifting. Should I be getting adhesion sheets? If adhesion sheets also fail, can you also add Magigoo? Is Dimafix better?


thank you for any suggestions.


Here's them brim lifting up.



And here's the raft, same symptoms.

    One of my test prints is similar to the second photo, lumpy small bubbles in print on my S5.

    In my case increasing the layer height decrease/removed the issue....

    maybe the expermental feature "Adaptive Layers" might help but it sure will reduce print time....


    Sure bed temp is in right range/clean glass plate start clean slate etc.

    For CPE and PETG I am mostly using Magigoo FLEX.

    The Magigoo Standard glue is not sticky enough for everything I printed in CPE/PETG so far.

    I would suggest you give this one a shot, although I only had small prints so far on it.


    For bigger prints the adhesion might be too good, but so far I never had a PETG print-fail because of adhesion issues again...
