The ABS 3d printing is different from PLA printing with higher print temp. So what’s the maximum temp that Anet A8 Plus supports for the warm bed. And how long does it take to reach to the maximum temp. Thermal Insulation Underneath the Heat Bed Before insulating the underside of the heated bed, the hot bed only reached 82 degrees, and it took more than one hour to reach that temperature. The key of successfully printing ABS is to add a thermal insulation or a simple foam under the hotbed to hold the temperature for 100 degrees Celius. Heat gun...

Flexible filament is somewhat difficult to print as it is not a rigid filament such as PLA, which causes it to bend and become entangled in the extruder’s gear system. TANGLE FREE PRINTING Especially in printers that...
