Printing ABS insideout to reduce delamination while cooling


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printing ABS insideout to reduce delamination while cooling

Is it possible after the first adhesion layer to print each subsequent layer in reverse order (Inside Out)? I think this would improve ABS printing without a heated chamber since the inside would be cooler and more stable and not put stresses on the outside.

    Kind of.  You can print "Infill before walls" and also "Outer wall before inner wall".


    I don't print much ABS but when I do I take the printer into the garage (toxic fumes) and throw a garbage bag over the top.  That keeps the bed heat above the print.  I adjust the heat of my enclosure by peeking inside every once in a while.  I have my peek time finely calibrated.

      • 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
