Re: printed part does not stick to green base

hello,

this did not used to happen because I was not printing big enough parts.

I am indeed printing large parts, namely the reprap. So all my parts are rafted, and it it does not look like adhesion problem but rather thermal.

what else can I do?

best regards.

printed part does not stick to green base

Hello, For the past couple of prints - (generally large complicated objects) the base does not stick to the bottom part. it starts from the corners and goes kinda up on the corners, distorting the part shape? Why does this happen? the glue? the seperation between the printing tip and the base? I hav...

Re: surface option in printing software

what would happen if i unplug the usb cable while printing?

Hello,

What would happen if the usb cable is plugged off while printing?

Also, after printing finishes, I turn off the printer, raise the platform by hand and unmount it. is there a problem moving the platform by hand while the printer is off? Is this something we should not do?

Best Regards,
-C.A.
