How to 3D Print With The Most Quality Guid

No More Warps and Cracks

Are your prints curling off the build plate?
This can happen during printing when the air around your print is too cool.
Thermal expansion means that warmer layers closer to the extruder are shrinking, causing strain on the cooler layers below.
The shrinking layers pull at the stable layers, warping the object.
If the bond between two layers isn’t strong, the strain of the warping layers can actually cause cracks in the sides of your objects.

Warping occurs more often with ABS than with PLA because ABS expands more when it’s heated. 

For either type of plastic, warping can be reduced by warming up the area around your object.
