Carbon Fiber PLA Print Modes on Replicator+

by hjnorman

Does anyone have any experience or Print Modes they can share for Replicator+ w/ Carbon Fiber PLA? I’ve been printing with PLA/ABS in various MakerBot Replicators for years but this is my first try with a composite/embedded filament. The main issue I’m having is the print popping/warping/curling off the raft. The raft will stick to the printer bed fine but the body of the print will detach from the raft in one or two areas (not the entire model). I’ve tried adjusting the raft to model settings, print speeds, etc. but still having 1-2 small areas detaching due to curl/warp. I’m using the Experimental Extruder with the .6 steel nozzle. If anyone has experience or print modes they’ve successfully used with CF PLA, I would appreciate it!!

Method X 20um Print settings and hardware mods

by jrw003

Our university just bought a Method X and it advertises that it can print 20um layers. I cannot seem to find anywhere in the documentation about how to achieve 50um or better resolution. Does anyone have mods and/or settings to make this printer do this? Any help is greatly appreciated! I have contacted support for the same but have not heard back from them yet. Also, is there a certain material that is better than the others that I may have to purchase to print in such resolutions?

Printmode for PET on Z18 w/ Experimental Extruder

by SALZ18

I use it with the standard 0.4mm nozzle and the BASF Ultrafuse PET filament. Makes nice and strong prints. Since the material shrinks a bit in the X and Y directions, I enlarge the part in these two axes to 100.6%. The shrinkage in the Z direction is negligible.

Printing with makerbot ABS ?

by he55e

hello, I'm using makerbot replicator (5gen) with experimental extruder.
I bought a wrong filament long ago for an older makerbot machine made out of ABS 1,8
Connecting the experimental extruder did not give me extra custom settings as advertized …

I would like to know if ABS is an option and if yes where to find the correct settings.

thnaks in advance !
