My go-to ABS is eSun black, I've printed many hundreds of objects with it. The only change I make to the stock ABS profile is changing the nozzle temp to 245 and the bed to 108. What sort of problems are you having?

Warpage is my issue. I gave up on the Buildtak and just installed Gizmo Dorks PEI sheet. Seems to be sticking a lot better now. Does the bed temp increase of 8 make big difference?

INLAND ABS works super well - small and large.
3DXtech ESD ABS prints well - small and large.
Raise3D ABS is nice - prints are nice, not nearly as nice as inland ABS.

I use ABS juice on glass, but yes, it makes a big difference for me. If the bed is at 100, prints will peel up no matter what. It's possible that is because the glass plate itself is a bit of an insulator.

I have PEI from Buildtak on it's way to me now and a second removable plate from Raise3D. I am hoping the PEI from Buildtak works well.
