ABS come off when printing in UM original

Recommended Posts

Posted · ABS come off when printing in UM original

Hello again

I could not find anything on the subject of opening a new post.

My problem is:

When printing ABS during printing material gently starts to rise, this rise in growth during printing also receive locations where the material is split during printing.

Samples with two different colors to see if the material will react differently, but the problem remained. I send picutres to see.

Use standard settings CURA printing ABS because it's my first print with this material.

My question is:

Am I wrong or something bad material?

thank you

PetarV

No, that's what ABS does. It contracts much more than PLA when it cools, and that can lead to these sorts of problem. You really need a heated bed to get ABS to stick without curling and lifting off the bed - and even then ABS can be tricky to print, and needs careful control over temperature and cooling.

Thanks for the reply.

All brands of printers you have this problem or just Ultimaker?

UM2 have a similar problem?

Is there any way / at slow speed, lower temperature or second fan / to fix the problem because I have several colors and do not know what to do?

Regards

Peter

As illuminarti wrote, ABS can only be printed with a heated bed in order to avoid the strong warping you experienced.

So, I wouldn't talk about a 'problem the printer has'. A standard UM Original is just not the right tool to print ABS as a knife is not the right tool to drill a hole.

The UM2 has a heated bed and can therefore be used to print ABS.

However, you can upgrade your UM Original with a heated bed. Have a look at http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/2771-complete-heated-bed-kit-for-ultimaker for a third party solution. Maybe the best way to go for you is to wait a few weeks as Ultimaker is expected to present a heated bed upgrade kit for the UM Original quite soon (it's already in the newest Cura version).
