Help needed with Taulman T-glass

Recommended Posts

Hi anyone here with experience of using T-glass?

 

I tried it for the first time this morning and am having severe problems getting it to stick to the print bed.

 

If I manually extrude the filament it is fine, although it does have a tendency to curl up around the nozzle, which is not something I suffer from with PLA.

 

 

My key settings are…

 

Glass print bed

Heated to 107 degrees

 

Extruder - tried both 215 and 220 degrees

 

Nozzle width 0.4mm

 

Speed- tried both 30 and 20 m/s

 

1 wall with solid infill (as per Taulman website)

 

 

The glass has been used with hairspray for PLA; so after my failures I have now cleaned the plate and am waiting for it to warm up again.

 

Also there is a residue of nylon on the plate. I have always just used a cloth and warm water to clean the glass plate but am now struggling to remove the nylon residue. Is there something that is OK to use additionally to remove the nylon from the glass?

 

All comments appreciated – this is my first foray outside of PLA :shock:

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
