I have found you can use ABS without a Heated bed but you ether over heat "cook" the Plastic or is is so cold your extruder Jams.
I will buy some nail polish remover tomorrow and check that out... It will also effect the thin Layer of ABS plastic on the Blue Painters tape. A heated bed is cheaper in the long run You only use Kapton tape so you do not have to Wipe the glass with Acetone to get the Plastic residue off
This really is great! Â It works like a charm. Â I have some plastic that I could not get to stick down for anything - this does the trick. Â Put down blue painters tape, wipe it with nail polish remover, and print and good part. Â I am using "Cutex Nail Strengthening Polish Remover" because that is what my wife had around. Â Great work - thanks a lot.
Major ingredients: Acetone, water propylene carbonate, dimethyl glutarate, dimethyl succinate, dimethyl adipate, glycerine, and gelatin. The rest are fragrances/colors.
I would like to point out, however, that using simple acetone dilute or denatured alcohol dilute had the same effect, so the effect that these other ingredients have is either nonexistent or negligible. I believe that the effect of the acetone is to create minuscule pockmarks on the face of the ta
pe, increasing the surface area and therefore multiplying the adhesive effect that the tape already has. But hey, could be wrong :P

Give a Shout Out
Warning: Do NOT use denatured alcohol or stronger dilutions of acetone. If you apply anything with a higher concentration than nail polish remover, you will NEVER get the tape off of the bottom of your print!
Major ingredients (For comparison): Acetone, water, propylene carbonate, dimethyl glutarate, dimethyl succinate, dimethyl adipate, glycerine, and gelatin. The rest are fragrances/colors.
