Processing PC-ABS is a bit challenging. For best results, a heated bed is required to control warpage and improve layer adhesion, set the bed at 120 °C up to 140 °C. Slow (10-20 mm/s) and hot first layer for best adhesion.
Standard build surface preparation like Kapton, ABS juice, or UHU stick.
Recommended print speed: 20-80 mm/s.
PC-ABS is moisture sensitive. Even when stored in a bag with desiccant, drying in an oven for ~ 1hr at 85-95 °C may be required for bubble free high strength prints.
Good results are achieved when printing small parts at 270-290 °C on a heated bed at 120 °C up to 140 °C. For larger prints with good layer adhesion and minimal distortion, an enclosure is ideal.
Due to all the different types of hotend it's extremely difficult to give a temperature advice. Please consider these tips, provided by the manufacturer, as a starting point to find the temperatures that work well in your setup. You may have to adjust the temperature settings slightly based on your type of printer.
