TAZ 6 Large Model Splitting (PLA)

Hey all,

I’ve seen posts of people having issues with splitting using ABS, but nothing about splitting with PLA. I’ve read that building an enclosure may help, but I’m not sure how to go about this. Sometimes the splitting is minor and sometimes it completely ruins the model. I have the temp set to 210 C and I make sure to have about 20% fill and I always create a brim and supports. Is there anything I can do to help reduce this from happening?

That sure as heck doesn’t look like PLA to me. PLA doesn’t lift in the corners. If it is PLA its a wierd formulation. If it were me i’d try printing it with the bed at 110 and the nozzle at 230 and see if it improves adhesion. If it does, that’s ABS, not PLA. The only other thing I can think of is if you have the bed heater completely cold.
