by Johan-Broer

Printers Supported: Method X

MakerBot Print/CloudPrint Settings:

Model Material: ABS
Support Material: SR-30
Print Mode: Balanced

Custom Settings
Extruder 1 temp: 270C

Other Workflow Steps:

It is recommended to use a material caddy, such as the Polybox Edition 2, since the material absorbs moisture from the air.
If stringiness is observed, please dry the material.
PC-FR sticks extremely well to the Grip Surface of the METHOD build plate, so you will have to replace it more frequently than with ABS.
When printing sharp overhangs, it is recommend to change the following additional custom settings:

  • Extruder 1 Temp: 290C
  • Number of shells: 4
  • Extruder 1 Cooling Fan Speed: Outlines: 30%
