I'd really like to go the ABS route too - have you sorted the problems with the heated bed then now? (it was too cool before I think you said?) I'd love to see a thread on how best to convert UM to ABS and your experience with mods etc. (I've seen far too many heated bed threads that I've lost track of which is easiest/best and half of them end in 'it didn't do what I thought it would' or other failures)

70C is the point where PLA starts to go soft. ABS is also a bit more flexible at room temperature. But PLA extrudes easier and isn't toxic. You should also be able to recycle PLA objects into new filament. And I do not think that is possible with ABS.

Glad you like it. I really love seeing this ultimaker in its blue suite :D

But I have to admit, I added enough paint, so it was really blue and when it came time to fitting the frame together and the platform.... :lol: :lol: :lol: was funny but i pulled it off.
