Tips&Tricks

It prints like PLA on non-heated beds with blue tape. If heated bed is available, set it at about 40-70 °C. It's better not to leave idle the filament (as in not extruding or printing) in a heated printer nozzle. It may cause blockage. After the printing is complete, remove the filament from the nozzle promptly.
