Posted · PLA and TPU together .... heated bed?

Excited that you can interlock materials with the latest CURA but..... if you have TPU and PLA in the same model AND both materials start on the print bed, are there any recommendations for bed temperature? For TPU, my understanding that that you want to avoid a heated bed but for PLA, the bed would normally be at 60C or so. Just looking for advice before attempting a dual material print from somebody who has tried these materials together.

    ive never tried both materials together but TPU sticks well to a glass 60c bed 

    Just tried it .... didn't work for me using Ultimaker TPU on a 60C heated bed, the TPU simply refused to stick so not quite the solution I was looking for 🙂. Will have to try it with an unheated bed and have fingers crossed that the PLA will adhere - it has been a long time since I printed PLA 'cold' but will see how it goes with some Magigoo or similar.
