    I like this adhesive because the print is really glued to bed. While printing with the bed at 60C the model really glued down, evening hammering will not come off. Then after the print is done and the bed cools down below 30C the print comes off the bed very easy.

    Printed this chap over the weekend. Not normally a trinket guy but this was such a great model I just had to.

    Filament: Filaprint gold PLA and Real Filament nuclear green PLA
    Layer height: 0.15mm
    Print speed: 50mm/s
    Nozzle temp: 195°
    Bed temp: 55°

    I will tweak the settings a bit. There were quite a few threads from retractions that I removed but some are still visible (a hot air gun will take care of them). I think in future I need to drop the nozzle temp to 190° or even 185°.




    EDIT: Get the model here

    And for interests sake here is the print again along with all the supports and the (solid) purge tower.

    Took 19 hours on my CR-X but worth it. Maybe I'll do another one at max scale. One day.

    I have a CR10, upgraded to a E3D v6 hotend, and a Prusa i3 MK3.
    You're probably right about needing to upgrade, before being able to print the CF nylon. I had upgraded mine before I had tried anything but PLA.
    You can get hardened nozzles for the E3Dv6 from Matterhackers, they're in the states, if you're in Europe E3D has them.

    That came out really nice, and I like the color.

    20190422_120226.jpg I tend to use my printer to test ideas and make prototypes.
    This is a bearing block made of PLA at 50% infill.
