I’m getting a lot of stringing on layer 1. One recommendation says to lower the (ABS) print temperature.
I’m using the ABS (ICD3) profile which has a hot end temp of 245 deg. I’ve copied the High Detail profile to make High Detail #2. But I can’t see how to edit it. Should I be copying an existing to a new material and edit that instead?
Tried Settings/Profiles/Manage Profiles, and can open and see what the settings ARE. But none of them are editable. I single or double click on a field, and nothing happens.
I’m using an MG Chemicals ABS Grey filament. It isn’t in the standard materials so i guessed and chose the first ABS filament in the list - ICD3. Looking again at the packaging, I see it recommends 230-240 C for the printing temperature.
I’m using Cura 3.2.32 on Lulzbot Mini.
How do I edit the profile, or create a new material with amended settings, or otherwise permanently reduce the hot end temperature to see if it will help with the stringing, and slight ooze when the print head is waiting and warming up before starting to print?
I have tried searching this forum, but maybe I’m using the wrong search terms - I can’t find any explanation of how to make this, or other, changes to the profile or material. And now I come to think of it, I’m not sure which of those
I should be changing!
