I’ve been trying out printing with Alloy 910 recently.
The good is that I’ve figured out a great way to have good bed adhesion without mucking around with glue. I saw that people have had success printing nylon filament with phenolic on the bed. I decided to try doing the same thing with Alloy 910. I added a 1/16" sheet of FR-4 on top of the bed, clipped down the corners with binder clips, adjusted the Z offset, and set the bed temperature to 80 C. This works flawlessly. The models adhere well to the top during printing and pop right off after cooling. No need for glue at all.
The bad is that I have had persistent problems keeping the nozzle clean when using Alloy 910. The stuff seems to ooze out and adhere more tightly to the nozzle than other materials. After the first few prints, I found that I needed to manually clean the print nozzle almost every time I printed because the auto-nozzle-cleaning didn’t work. Has anyone else had this issue? What have you done to resolve it? I really love the material and want to use it more. But right now I am spending way too much time cleaning and not enough time printing.
