I know you’re not supposed to use ABS but my printer is giving me hell with PLA. Has anyone had success with ABS and what did you do?vicious1KeymasterApril 23, 2016 at 9:21 amPost count: 2677
I’m guessing you have an all metal hot end? They only print PLA faster than normal, and you have to turn up the first layer speed as well. If you go too slow the heat will actually climb up the filament, make it soft, and it will get expanded in to the extruder tube and clog.
If that doesn’t work the next best option is PET or PETG.ScottParticipantApril 23, 2016 at 2:50 pmPost count: 8
You seem to be describing the situation as i have read it. I ordered a few non-all metal hotends and I see some expansion down at just the tip now. I assume I just need to test the lower limit of temperature but I am so tired of pulling the hotend apart. 🙂
