ABS top edge lifting

Recommended Posts

I finally finished the UM2 enclosure and started doing some prints in ABS. However, one of the first prints failed with one of the top edges lifting up. Photo included.

Every other edge is fine. The big central hole has been printed with supports but it is far enough not to affect the bad corner.

edit: talking about top left corner lifting up in the first image

Any hints what may have happened there?

Printed at 260 C, bed at 110 C, ambient inside enclosure about 50 C, no fan.

Thanks

Maybe I am wrong but it looks like the plastic did not cool enough. Maybe at a little bit of fan. I usually add a bit of fan for ABS. Lets say 20% or something like that depends at what setting your fans start turning.

    • "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.
