Have you ever ruined an ABS print because you used too much ABS juice ?
The print become impossible to remove from the bed, and you eventually break the piece...

Well, I found a very cheap and easy solution to fix this problem: Acetone substitute made out of 2-butoxyethanol (like this one: http://goo.gl/gnF4Yv)
It is not only cheap it is also environmental friendly.

It does not make the ABS sticky so you cannot use it to smooth your print, but to cleanup the ABS juice or to remove the print from the bed, it only takes 10 seconds and few drops.
If you leave the piece in this substitute for a long period, ABS will become like chewing gum but still wont be sticky.

I bought it by mistake, but it is not my best friend. I can put as much ABS juice as I want, my print will always detach perfectly.

Hi All,
I was reading this post : http://www.sparxeng.com/blog/mechanical/3d-print-orientation-effect-part-strength
And I was wondering if there is any software able to "search" for the best orientation. By best orientation, I mean the easiest/fastest orientation for a successful print OR the orientation that would make the piece stronger.

Does anyone know such software ?
At Sparx Engineering, we heavily rely on our 3D printers for rapid prototyping. It’s very rare to not hear at least one of our 3 machines printing something. Some days it’s the ultra-high resolut...

Hi all,
Any idea what can cause such issues with ABS ?
The corners are always wrapping but the rest adhere very strongly on the glass ... And it happens on the 4 corners....
Strangely, after 5mm heigh, all layers are perfect
(I tried with 3dlac and kapton, same results. Bed is at 110C, ABS at 230C).

Could it be a temperature issue with the black ABS ?

Hi,
I am trying to make a vapor box to smooth my 3d print.
To vapor the acetone, I use the heating module of a baby bottle warmer.
However this heats too fast and too much. I'm not super good at electronics so maybe my question is dumb...
If I add a potentiometer before the heating resistor, will I be able to control how fast it heats?

Thanks

There are a number of kits for turning your toaster into a reflow oven. It's exactly the same equipment you'd need for turning a bottle-warmer into a temperature-controlled liquid warmer of any variety.

I had the same thing happened on my bondtec extruder when I didn't get the ptfe tubing pushed in all the way. There was a gap and the petg I was running wadded up like that. Could not feed the filament through until I got it out.

Hi all,
My designed piece is never the same size as the printed piece.
For instance, if I design a box with 2mm wall, after printing the walls are 3mm.
And the overall size of the box has 1mm extra comparing to th design...
Any clue on the reason ? I thought it has to do with the number of perimeters, but event when set to 1, the problem remains.
(printer is a flashforge creator pro)

Thanks

Edit: maybe I found the cause. Horizontal compensation was set at 0.5

Anyone have good tips for removing 3M blue tape from the bed?
I'd like to replace it by Kapton tape, but not sure how to remove it without damaging the bed...
Thanks

Hi all,
Does anyone have a clue on what is causing this?
The raft is perfect but the print itself is a huge fail...
It is abs print (220°C hotend, 90°C bed) in a flashforge creator pro.

+Benjamin Santalucia great! Be careful with retraction if you have any slop on your z leadscrews, or preload them with some springs.
