Hey everyone. I could really use some advice. I am a new to the 3D printing scene. I have been trying to print Dragonlock terrain by Fat Dragon games. I am having a lot of fun but I am having trouble printing with PLA on the whole bed. I am having issues with it warping off the bed if the part is a few inches away from the center(please see the pictures).
I live in an apartment which I keep at 72 degrees (I even tried turning the thermostat up to 74). The printer is in an area with no air flow. I have calibrated my E steps, filament diameter (using an average of several measurements with a digital caliper), and initial layer thickness (with squish). A print in the middle of the bed looks beautiful. I started with the bed set to 60 degrees celsius and have tried increasing it to 65 celsius to no avail. Is my bed temperature too high? Not high enough? Should I use hairspray? Should I sand the PEI (it’s a brand new printer)? I do not have a temperature gun but the bed seems fairly consistent to touch all over. I clean it with rubbing alcohol between prints.
I am using the Polylite True Grey PLA. I would love some advice so I can print parts out on the whole bed instead of just one or two a time.
Layer heigh .15 - .3
Print Speed 50 mm/s
Shell thickness 1.0
Printing Temp: 205
Let me know if you need any other details.
THANKS SO SO SO MUCH!!!
