I am a user of a zortrax M200 and I have a problem. The ABS filament no longer holds on the heating plate. I have some 3D prints that warp and are rounded.
I cleaned the heatbed with rubbing alcohol to remove the grease. I cleaned the remains of old 3D printing with a spatula.
But the problem remains the same.
I would like to know what are your solutions to solve this problem.
Thanks in advance,
have a look at our troubleshooting manual that shows how to deal with warping. It is crucial to ensure higher ambient temperature, avoid air flows, apply some plate adhesive, tweak Z-SUITE settings (set the fan speed to 0%, set lower infill level, decrease platform-raft gap).
What are the autocalibration results? The platform might require maintenance, or even replacement if it is bent/deformed (it is a consumable part - its approximate lifespan is 700 hours).
I’m not sure but the machine hasn’t done 700 hours of 3D printing yet.
I put cardboard instead of the zortrax side covers to avoid the air flow.
Do you have tray adhesive products to recommend?
I will use the zortrax settings and try again.
Résult after calibration:
the plate adhesives - I would recommend Z-ABS juice (that was alredy mentioned in the manual I sent you), or even a glue stick.
As for autocalibratiton results - the center point value is 0.5, wheras most of the side points value is -0.1 - this difference is too big, it seems the center of the platform is deformed. If the maintenance does not resolve this - the platform might need replacement.
