ABS Print Settings

Postby TheDude » Tue Jul 16, 2019 7:20 pm

All,

I've seen the various posts relating to best ABS printer settings, but I have one basic question: What is the Best Settings profile for Raise3D ABS filament, 1.75mm, on the Raise3D Pro 2 Plus?

I'm currently struggling to dial in a basic Raft print. The layers are not fused and the extrusions look more like tiny, individual ropes vs nicely fused, side by side passes.

What am I missing in what should be a simple setting for a higher melting point material?

Thanks!

We would recommend you start from the default standard profiles in ideaMaker.

Vicky,

The problem with that is I'm using 0.2mm Nozzles and in order to setup the printer, I must Duplicate the Default Pro2 Plus Profile, which REMOVES all the default material templates.

How can I adjust the nozzles for my printer (and I may go back and forth with sizes) and not lose these templates?

Secondarily, do you have a pre-vetted set of profiles/templates optimized for the .2 nozzles? IF not, when could they be ready?

Thanks!

We don't really think 0.2mm nozzle can hold ABS with no issue. As 0.2mm nozzle will bring more pressure when extruding filament. And ABS is normally considered as harder to be extruded than PLA. Which means it will have higher chance to clog the nozzle.
If you'd like to give it a try, you can start with higher temperature and lower printing speed to see whether it works for your prints or not.

Vicky,

I just attempted a 15 hour ABS print using factory settings on .4mm Factory Nozzle, Raise3D ABS material. Failed in about 1 hour (first layer basically) as the left extruder jammed. (Single extrusion print)

This is similar to results I've had in the past with heat related jamming on PLA.

How can I diagnose this?

The servo's are very hot to touch.

Cabinet was enclosed per ABS recommendations

I would recommend you open a support ticket then at http://help.raise3d.com, if you are meeting continuously jam with both PLA and ABS with default settings. It may due to hardware issue need to do further diagnose.

I'm also struggling to print well with ABS, I had been doing smaller structural parts with a folgertech ft-5 printer in an enclosure and finally got good results, but I'm starting from scratch with this one, nothing seems to carry over in terms of settings.
