3D Printing – Perfect first layer

Magigoo chemist Jean Paul Formosa, discusses how to best determine the optimal bed temperature for minimum warping. Improving adhesion further With some engineering materials, printing at the optimum build-plate temperature and using a designated build-plate adhesive might still not be enough to prevent warping. While for some materials a heated build chamber which reduces the thermal stress is needed, the …

3D Printing – Better settings, less warping

Magigoo chemist Jean Paul Formosa, discusses how to best determine the optimal bed temperature for minimum warping. How to determine the best build plate temperature This process of finding the best build-plate temperature is relatively simple but often overlooked when 3D printing. One needs to print a test print specifically designed to assess the warping behaviour at different temperatures. This …

3D Printing – Temperature and first layer adhesion

Magigoo chemist, Jean Paul Formosa, discusses what causes 3D print warping and how to reduce and avoid it. This is part two of a four part series. Check out part one here “3D Printing Warping and It’s Causes“. Controlling the warp The solution to prevent warp is to ensure that the adhesion between the first layer of the printed object …

Magigoo chemist Jean Paul Formosa, shares his insight and knowlege with regards to 3D print warping. Follow this 4 part blog series to learn how and why warping happens and how to best reduce it. Introduction In this 2 part series of blog posts we will be exploring Warping and its causes. Factors that control the warp. Effects of build …

Magigoo – Bed Adhesive

If you are new to 3D Printing, or even a seasoned professional, you know that one of the biggest causes for print failures comes from parts of your 3D print not sticking to the bed properly. Whether it is from your print having a small footprint, or your print warping off of the bed. Most of the time this can …
