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 of tweaking to get a good print.
One of the issues I’m having is that my prints are aggressively sticking to the print plate. So mush so, that sometimes I damage my prints in the removal process, or am afraid I am causing some damage to my printer and/or print surface.
What do you guys recommend to help mitigate this issue?
I purchases some PET tape (1mil thickness), but haven’t tried it yet. Do you guys recommend using PET tape? If so, do I need to make any adjustments to my printer (i.e. adjust the Z etc. etc.) or in the Cura software to compensate for the PET tape?
Appreciate your assistance.
EDIT: I’m using IC3D High Quality Green 3mm ABS (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TVL4R2G)
