Quick Tips

  • A heated bed should be used to prevent warping
  • The particles in the filament may start to wear down the brass nozzle after several hours of printing. The nozzle should be checked before each print and replaced if worn.
  • To improve adhesion to print bed, user may apply a small amount of acetone/ABS slurry.
  • To achieve maximum density, you may need to increase the flow rate 5 – 10%.

  • Place a small layer of acetone on the print bed to help with sticking.
