Re: ABS Aggressive Sticking to Print Bed - HELP!

Peter, first thanks for taking the time to reply. I'm totally new to this so please don't mind my ignorance. 1) When you say "Make sure your initial layer height is dialed in" How exactly do I go about doing this? 2) 50c bed temp seems to have solved my issue. Thanks! 3) How will I know when I have ...

Re: ABS Aggressive Sticking to Print Bed - HELP!

Nopick,

When you say "add a little positive z offset in the Slicer," can you explain exactly how to do that? What exact perimeters should I be adjusting in Cura?

Sorry, a complete newbie here.

Thanks!

Re: Cura vs. Other 3D Printing Software

Hey Rhoderman, No problem! I'm here to learn so any extra info is always good. :D Thanks for the tips on Cura. I didn't know about the temp window or the layers window. Where did you find the nickle file? I don't seem to have it on my tumbdrive that came with the printer. For the flow% and the filam...

New Mini Owner - How to ensure my Mini is Optimal?

Hey guys, Proud owner of a Lulzbot Mini as of last week. Of course I couldn't resist jumping right in and printing like crazy, but I'm finding that my prints aren't always of great quality (part of that is ABS learning curve). Not bad, but definitely could be better. I want to make sure my Mini is i...

Re: ABS Aggressive Sticking to Print Bed - HELP!

Hi nopick, thanks for the reply.

When you say "in the slicer," are you referring to the Cura software?

What about print bed temp upon removal? Do you recommend a certain temperature, or is room temperature sufficient?

Cura vs. Other 3D Printing Software

Greetings! New to 3D printing, and I was wondering why some people choose to use other software (i.e. Slic3R, Simplify3D, etc)? Cura seems to have everything you would need to do your 3D printing. What advantages do these different softwares have over Cura? What do you guys use and what would you re...

ABS Aggressive Sticking to Print Bed - HELP!

Greetings fellow 3D printer enthusiasts! I'm new to 3D printing, having just received my Lulzbot Mini last week. Before my printer arrived I had arbitrarily pre-ordered a roll of ABS as it seemed like that was one of the more popular 3D print materials. I am now learning that ABS takes quite a bit o...
