Re: [THEORY] PLA Temperature / Melting Point Tempering

2015 now and running a new Series One. First time printer but am aware that the new machines are running at higher speed now. Temp for PLA is set at 220 C which was high for older machines, but works great with Natural PLA. I tried White and Grey and noticed big difference with stringiness and gaps....

PLA Prints that stick great to unheated platform

Masking tape 1/8" Plexigass to glass platform and level
Take off, go outside spray 3M Super 77 spray adhesive on it
Retape to unheated platform
PLA loves this stuff!
Easy removal, acetone clean-up if needed at all.

Pronterface into USB Connector

While trying to find info on changing out filaments I ran across reference to Pronterface.
Will plugging it into my 2015 Type A to experiment mess up anything?

Printing Large Models

Can't find tips on printing maxed out models on my new 2015 Type A Machine. As a week old first time printer I've had some success with smaller 'solid' models. I am guessing the secret for really big models ( besides orientation) is slicing and making model hollow. I did both in ZBrush and am going ...
