I’m printing a part that is about 4" long ad 0.3" wide from 2.93mm ABS with the tip at 230 C and bed at 85 C. The 1st part warped, the second part printed perfectly, and the 3rd part printed with excessive warp as shown here. The sides of this part should be flat on the table, but I ended up holding them in place with painter’s tape just to get the whole part to print.
I’m printing with all layers at 0.2mm including first layer and I haven’t found the brim to help at all.
I feel that it won’t matter what adhesive/sheet I try, because of how severe this part is warping. I’ve tried to use the elmer’s purple glue stick on the bed - but when I tried to print on that area, the plastic just slipped off.
-Is there a proper procedure for adding glue/adhesive to the bed, such as applying, heating, cooling, printing?
-From reading forums, it appears that the best answer for this is to enclose the TAZ4 in a box of some kind. Has this actually solved warping issues?
-Has anyone tried printing sacrifical material or multiple parts to cover more of the bed surface?
Thanks in advance!
