1st Failed ABS Model

Post by Roberts_Clif »

Today I had my first failed ABS print.
Although it was defiantly my fault, was still my first failed ABS Print, now this was a simple error on my part.
As I was in a hurry to print the model I forgot it was sliced for PLA an not for ABS, so I was printing an ABS model at PLA temperatures, below is the results of this error.

You can see very easily that the model had no intentions on staying flat on the hot-bed at 42C.

So in the future I will need to pay much more attention when selecting the 3D Models I want to Print.
It is quite simply an easy task to change from PLA to ABS, as all that is required is to change the Nozzle and Hot-bed temperatures, I do not even worry about the parts cooling fan speed, as when printing inside my homemade enclosure the heated air blowing on the model does not seen to disturb it in any way whatsoever.

Here is the same model printed by changing the PLA temps to bed 96C an nozzle 228C.
