I can’t figure this one out. I’ve read plenty of different suggestions and tried many, but I continue to experience warping, particularly when printing with PETG.
- Wanhao Duplicator i3 Plus
- Nozzle: .4 mm (Micro Swiss, all-metal) @ 245° C
- Layer height: .2 mm
- Initial layer speed: < 20 mm/s
- Wanhao heated bed @ 80° C w/ hairspray put down before heating
- 1.75 mm eSUN solid black PETG
- Printing with a 40-line brim
- 0% part cooling fan
The filament lays down okay and will be fine until about an inch or so has been printed, then it’s warping. The room it’s in tends to stay around 24-25° C while printing and I don’t have any other fans blowing air around the room.
I’ve tried varying the bed temp from 50 - 83° C - it yields varying degrees of warp, but it always warps. I have a glass sheet on the way to try but I’d really like to be able to print on the “default” Wanhao surface (I don’t necessarily mind glue or hairspray). As far as I can tell, both the nozzle’s and the bed’s temps are consistent to +/- 1-2° C.
For reference, this is what I’m currently trying to print: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2059013
is what I’m getting. It did this on some translucent red PETG from another brand, as well.
I really want to be able to use PETG without issue but I’m at my wits’ end. Please, help! And thanks!
