I dont get it, everyone else on the internet heralds PEI as a miracle material. I personally cant get anything to stick well.
Ive leveled and releveled my bed until I am blue. I’ve experimented with the Z end stop and tried to mash the first layer down farther into the bed. I’ve cleaned and recleaned with isopropyl alcohol. I’ve even tried sanding the dang thing (lightly with 2000 grit).
How are people complaining about parts sticking “to well”. I’m pretty much forced to use a Brim on every print and pray to the the 3D printing gods that it will stick.
I tried contacting technical support and they pretty much copy pasted the user manually to me and called it a day. I’m at my wits end and I’m about to send this thing back as I am still within my 30 day window.
Generally I am printing at 240C nozzle temp with a 110 bed temp. I saw Lulzbots post about using 85 C bed temp… yeah right, nothing would even partially stick at that temp.
What initial layer heights does everyone use? I’ve tried going smaller but it seemed to stick even less. The preset 0.425 initial layer height seems to work best.
