Delta G2S Pro - ABS Settings

Post by ebea51 » Tue Dec 22, 2015 9:51 pm

Greetings all,

I am looking for some advice for settings to get good quality ABS prints.
The PLA has been perfect, but ive moved to ABS to try it out and the prints have some problems.

After some initial problems because the printer was setup for PLA ive changed some settings:
- Extruder Temp = 210 oC
- Hotbed Temp = 100 oC
- Slic3r = Filament Settings - Filament - Extrusion multiplier = 1.15

This fixed many problems, including the extruders not extruding enough ABS.
However, now the biggest problem is stringing, oozing and blobbing.

ABS constantly oozes from the extruders in big lines - during prints and during heating up.
Whenever the extruder changes directions is leaves big strings of ABS along the model.
Sometimes it even blobs and creates all sorts of problems.

As I am playing with settings to fix one problem, another seems to become bigger.
Im trying to find a midground.

A modification ive also done, according to the RepRap community for the G2S is to make the hotend fan ALWAYS ON (http://reprap.org/wiki/Delta_Rostock_mi ... evelopment)... im wondering if the blobbing may be caused by too much ABS being extruded and then cooled tooo rapidly by the extruder fan being constantly on.

The PLA printer settings are perfect...
but does anyone have any ABS settings??
Does any of the settings ive mentioned above damage my printer (ie. the higher temps)?

Do I have to play (not only with the above settings ive mentioned), but also with:
- print speed ("Print Settings - Speed" in Slic3r)?
- retraction settings ("Printer Settings - Extruder Number" in Slic3r)?
- extrusion multipliers ("Filament Settings - Filament" in Slic3r)?
- layers and perimeters ("Print Settings - Layers and perimeters" in Slic3r)?
- extrusion width ("Print Settings - Advanced" in Slic3r)?


Any help greatly appreciated.
Ross

to improve your print quality, you can check this link here:

And I think the temperature for ABS is a little low, how about use 220-230?

Yeah I went to that topic first.

If the temperature is too low for extruding ABS (even the supplier has recommeneded temperatures for the ABS of 230-270) then why does it constantly dribble and ooze melted ABS?
If the temperature is too low then it wouldn't be oozing everywhere would it?

Would I have to increase my filament retraction settings in Slic3r??

retraction settings will be useful for the stringing problem, you can try it.

As Geeetech provided a PLA slic3r config for the construction, calibration and test of the printer - do they have a ABS slic3r config laying around?
Maybe for another printer model which we could use as a guideline for printing ABS?

I think you can just change the temperature to 230,100 and try it, I've tried the same settings except temperature on PLA and ABS, and it worked well.

hello everyone
I've a g2s pro for about six months ,mold pla properly .
Now I'm trying to print with abs .These are the temperatures at which I can get some results.
hotbed 125 ° hotend 235 ° for the first layer and then for the rest of the printing 100 ° and 220 °
I fear that the temperature of the plate is too high and that in the long run damages the heater, but abs more low temperatures does not adhere to the plate.
