Re: Is it possible to raise the Max Bed Temp?

Pretty sure this is a parameter when building the printer firmware... so probably not readily possible. Here's a few tricks I've tried to help with ABS (no enclosure): - Let the bed warm longer for a more consistent platform temp. - Use a brim when slicing to help limit air from seeping under the p...

Is it possible to raise the Max Bed Temp?

I'm trying to print PC and it warps like crazy with the factory set max bed temp at 120°C, even with and enclosure and fan off and using Wolfbite Mega on the bed. I have gotten it to print setting the bed temp to 140°C and it worked fine, but still slight warping. I tried increasing the bed temp to ...

Re: Anyone using Wolfbite Mega on PEI bed?

Thank you for the reply, Galadriel. I do print Polycarbonate and PC hybrids with fan off. With PC-Max, I get very little warping on clean PEI, even on large print objects, but I'm trying out 3DXTech PC/ABS and it is a challenge to get good adhesion for objects over a couple of inches long. I may hav...

Re: Polymaker PC Plus profile

I print PC-Max with a Titan Aero, wich is basically the same as the AeroStruder, with a nozzle temp of 268° C and bed at 115°, no fan, at 40mm/s. From the photo, it looks like you're printing too slow and the heat is building up into the print from the nozzle and bed. Another possibility is that you...

Re: Modular Print Bed on Mini 1.4?

If you've had to change PEI sheets as much as I have, you'll love the modular bed for that reason alone. Loosen a couple of washers and pop the PEI covered glass off to work on it, and if you have an extra one ready to go, you pop that one one and get back to printing while you install the new PEI s...

Re: lulzbot mini smashing the sensor washers, again.

You might want to check the black ground wire that attaches to the underside of the bed plate. It allows the electrical connection to be made between the nozzle and the auto level washers during the leveling routine. I had those go bad on 2 Minis. The crimp connector will sometimes loosen over time ...

Anyone using Wolfbite Mega on PEI bed?

I'm printing PC and PC/ABS on my MINI in an enclosure with the nozzle temp at 280° C for the first 5 layers, then reduced to 270° and the PEI bed at 120° C. Small objects print okay but there's minor warping unless I use a little glue stick. But larger prints over about 2 inches wide warp like crazy...

Re: Question about printing Polycarbonate (PC-MAX)

I've used 100% infill and it produces some odd bulging in some objects, but dialing it back to about 50% helps relieve that. The lifting or warping seems to be mostly temp related. I haven't tried Elmers Glue stick yet or raising the bed temp a bit yet, so I may try that for my longer objects. I'm u...

Re: Matteforge

I've noticed that there can be a difference in nozzle temp requirements with different colors of some brands of filaments. I'm currently testing MatteForge black and haven't hit the sweet spot yet but getting closer. I'm having a real problem getting objects to stay attached to the PEI bed past abou...
