Tips&Tricks

Heated bed not required, if available set it between 0-45 °C. Glue or blue tape is suggested if not using a heated bed. Suggested print speed: for top and bottom layers around 15-20 mm/s, for infill around 45-60 mm/s. If available use cooling fan after the second layer.

Applications
Braces, fasteners, gears and protective covers.

TIPS!
When switching from another polymer (such as ABS or PLA) purge thoroughly before starting a print. As with other materials, when preheating, use a lower temperature (~180-200°C) to prevent excess material from draining prior to starting a print.

Due to all the different types of hot-end it's extremely difficult to give a temperature advice. Please consider our tips 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.
