PRINTS STICKING TO RAFT - NEW THREAD

I had been printing standard in ABS in my mini2 on a perf board. Had been doing it for some time and had no issues with removing from raft. Suddenly abs started being "melted" to raft it seemed. Was printing in Upbox with PLA and had easy removal from raft...now having same issue. On Flex board ther...

ABS print is sticking too well to raft

I was not having this problem at all, but now I am. I am using the perf board in the mini 2 and blue ABS. The prints are sticking too well to the raft (melting together bottom layer of print with raft). How can I fix this?

Why did you feel the need to post basically the same question twice?
Rather,
Why does FURN owe RRYERSON any explanation at all. I was able to determine that without the further explanation, AND even if I couldn't, the fact that FURN posted twice is inconsequential to my life...grow up RRYERSON

Re: ABS vs. ABSplus

I have a Uprint SE Plus at work and the Upbox at home And can say that the ABS prints I get off the Box are as good if not a little stronger and the ABS PLUS is shinier and harder but also more brittle but warps less on the box can't say it is stronger. But I can and do print with a lot of differen...

Re: UP BOX Auto Nozzle Height Detect

RobGer wrote:Fixed!

The metal contact was out of position so the nozzle missed it when lowering for Auto Levelling.

I pulled it forward slightly and it is now in position, just.

Thanks for help.

Rob.

How did you pull it forward? I am having issues with mine making good contact as well.

Re: UP BOX Auto Nozzle Height Detect

I'm having trouble with the Nozzle auto height detector on my UP BOX. When I perform this operation the machine lowers slowly towards the zero sensor and continues to push into it until the stepper motor starts jumping and an error message is displayed. I've tried this using the Mac software versio...

MINI2 Printhead Assembly: Where can I buy?

Re: Notes from a week+ of use

Hello all, Just wanted to post I few notes from what I have learned from working with Up mini 2 for about a week that may be of use: 1. My setup is basically a stock UP mini 2 using the included ABS and the build-tac build plate, all covers in place. 2. I have found that I do not need to preheat. I...

Calibrating nozzle MINI2

Manual says that clicking on the "+" or the "-" button to calibrate nozzle height will adjust the BED accordingly. The LCD screen indicates that to be adjusting the NOZZLE height. My nozzle is slightly too high, and causing the raft to print in loopy fashion. I want to get the nozzle closer to the b...

Re: ABS heating board

Follow-up to that. After 40 minutes the board never reached a percentage higher than 90%. As soon as i unpaused the print, it began printing the raft, and now the temp for the bed is at 84 and decreasing gradually...is it not needed to maintain temp? Does it just need to be at high temp during the p...

Re: M-PB-2 Adhesion Board

does anyone know how to heat the board faster for ABS prints? mine has taken 30 minutes to just get to the 88% mark...it seems to have stalled. I had to pause the print becuase it was going to start when the tip hit 275C

ABS heating board

I have been waiting to print a test print for 20 minutes. The Tip came to 270 Celsius in a couple of minutes, but I had to pause the job while the bed is catching up...otherwise it will start printing before the bed is up to temp, and the raft will eventually break free on longer jobs (low adhesion)...
