Does ASA damage glass build surface?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Does ASA damage glass build surface?

For YEARS I have printed ABS exclusively, but lately I've been using ASA and am very pleased.  I made a habit of always printing with a raft using Breakaway mainly so I wouldn't suffer the damage to the glass plate that ABS causes. ASA prints with basically the same parameters as ABS but does anyone know if ASA will cause the same glass issues as ABS?  maybe I don't need the raft anymore.

    I think you indeed do not need a raft with ASA or ABS if you use the glue stick as adhesion agent (smeared to a thin film with a wet cloth!).

    Ya, I'll let you experiment with that and risk your own plate.   I've already had ABS trash a plate (both sides!)
