Acetone slurry not working

Post by kerog »

Everyone told me that the Acetone/ABS slurry was the best way to get good adhesion, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. It's hardly sticking at all. Any advice? As I understand it, I'm supposed to apply to the glass when cool, allow to dry for a while, and then heat the bed to 100C and print. Am I missing something?

I tries to create ABS slurry, but I also didn't managed to dissolve the ABS completely. Maybe the acetone isn't agressive enough over here. Now I use Pritt Power glue stick on glass to print ABS: ... stick.html
(Don't use regular Pritt)
Works perfectly.

Very strange, because I checked then the rail, greased it checked if anything else is not tight or vibrates as well and I found nothing!

I've been mixing mine in a 20ml eye drop bottle. For 20ml of acetone I put in about 30mm of 1.75 filament cut into small pieces to make it dissolve faster.
I print on glass (from a picture frame) with the bed at 95C and it sticks with this mix. Easy to clean too.
