How to stop 3D prints from warping

By  Steve Lowry 2018-05-15 21054 0

When using a 3D printer, the first layer always fails to print, and warps when print several layers. It is really make people desperation, this post will help you to fix the problem.


Easy tutorial for stop warping:

In general the platform of the 3D printer machine has been adjusted before leave the factory, but it will be slightly tilted during transportation. When getting the machine, you can re-adjust the platform, according to the following steps:


1. Clean up the build platform or make it slightly higher.


2. Use a lint-free cloth with a little rubbing alcohol or some acetone nail polish remover to clean the surface of the platform (Acetone can be bought at the hardware store, please read instructions carefully before using it).


3. If the above method is not good, try to rotate the knob on the bottom of the platform and adjust the height of the platform to keep the platform close to the nozzle. (Please reference the step of "Debugging 3D printer’s heating platform".)


4. Use Raft to print, it allows printed objects easily to stick to the platform.
