We understand that each desktop 3D printer has its own unique characteristics, which is why you might need to adjust your temperature settings a bit to get the best results. To obtain optimal results for your prints you need to take certain factors into account like your 3D printer’s nozzle diameter, your printing speed settings, and layer height. Every printer is different, hence for each material/printer you should ensure to take notes of what works and what doesn’t work for it.

Your print bed MUST BE LEVEL & CLEAN. You can simply make use of acetone and a towel (lint free) to clean your surface and make sure it is free from oils and dirt before printing.

If your printer is equipped with a heated print bed, make sure it is turned-on, especially for ABS.

PLA   190°C - 220°C

PLA can be printed with or without a heated print bed. However, if your desktop 3D printer has a heated print bed, it is recommended that you set your print bed temperature to approximately 40°C - 60°C.

Glow in the dark use 5°C-10°C higher.

Sticks well to Blue painter's tape

ABS 200°C - 230°C

It is recommended that you make use of a heated print bed. Simply set your print bed temperature to approximately 90°C - 105°C.

Glow in the dark ABS use 250°C

Sticks well to Polyimide/Kapton tape, PET tape, Blue tape.

PETG 200°C - 220°C

Set your print bed temperature to approximately 85°C - 100°C.

Sticks well to Polyimide/Kapton tape, PET tape, Blue tape.

Flexible 200°C - 220°C

Set your print bed temperature to approximately 75°C - 95°C.

Sticks well to Polyimide/Kapton tape, PET tape, Blue tape.
