Greeting.

Lately, I have a slight problem with my Up mini printer where when printing large object usually around 7 to 9 cm in length, sometime the sharp end or corner of object would suddenly curl and lifted from the raft. The lifted part are sometime slightly cooler than any other part of the object

It currently a raining season here in Malaysia where it rain almost everyday. So if this is one of the reason that cause the sudden cooling of the object

Is there any way to fix this during printing and is there any way to repair the warped ABS printed object?

I have the same problem and I've had it before. Check the platform. Is it hot during printing. In my case a few years back I replaced the heating element (took me six months to find one) and currently, if the job takes too long then the heating element switches off midway and I am improvising by holding the piece down with clips and various parts. I suspect I need a new heating element again...
