Re: Cleaning Build Plate

Thanks

I am currently printing so can't look but how do I find the slicing settings? And what should I look for? It will finish in about an hour or less.

Re: Cleaning Build Plate

I have cleaned my bed and getting better results. However I think the STL file has a lot of problems with it. I opened it in Silc3r program and it found and repaired a lot of them but I still have bad prints with a lot of strings as though the filament is not sticking properly to the bed. I did some...

Cleaning Build Plate

How often should one clean the build plate with Alcohol?

Also I set my temp on the build plate for 110C when printing with HIPS. However, it never gets hotter than 85C. Is that an issue?
I have had problems with filament not sticking properly to the build plate.
Thanks
