Mike, are you having good luck with the ABP at 115C? I think I've been running it at 120C, but I don't know how to recognize the difference. Shrapnel 17:15, 11 April 2011 (EDT)

I've actually dropped it all the way down to 105C with no problem. I think the lower the better. However, I can't tell if that is what is causing my tall builds to break free or if the Z-axis needs some loving. MikeDillion 19:33, 11 April 2011 (EDT)

  • Regardless, I think the Z-axis needs some lovin'. All the rods need some dry silicone lube (according to the Makerbot docs?), and the Z-axis threaded rod probably needs to be better aligned. I've read about bent threaded rods, too. Shrapnel 12:30, 14 April 2011 (EDT)
