We Just got to try a Wonderful Product by Magigoo, And believe me you will never use any other liquid adhesive after trying this one. I used Wolfbite which worked fine but it was lacking something so i went to use Buildtak and Sitall glass but neither of those did the trick. I was just about to go back to using Wolfbite when i accidentally found Magigoo at the desk of my coworker. After using it for 3 months straight now I can say Magigoo is working exactly as good as Wolfbite for me and that I will not go back to using anything else because of how easy it is to apply with a pen. I strongly recommend Magigoo Adhesive Pen.
Application onto the Print bed
The printing adhesive comes in a pen form making it easy to apply to the 3d printing surface hot or cold, with a wide tip felt pen. After you applied it you should leave it to dry before 3D printing is started, it is also recommended that after each 3D print the plate is cleaned and applied with a new coat of Magigoo.
The adhesive helps to avoid 3D print warping, allows for longer print times and flat surfaces. You will also be able to print delicate 3D models because no force is required to remove the 3D print from the bed. The Magigoo 3D printing adhesive is different to other 3D platform fixing products because there are no harmful chemicals present in its formulation and its also cleaned off the plate using a damp cloth. And the Prints pops off Easily when cooled.
Printing onto Magigoo
Printing with it is a breeze everything sticks, and yet, is easily removed. First time i used i put on Way to much Adhesive but after two failed attempts i had a nice coat. We turned our printer upside down to do a test and had no issues whatsoever. Then again you should read the specifications down bottom. The adhesive will last over 100 3D prints.
- Long Lasting
- Easy Application
- Easy Release
Recommended Printing Settings
Magigoo has been designed and extensively tested to work with PLA and ABS plastics. It has shown good results also with HIPS, PET-G and even some branded Nylon filaments. As the composition of each plastic is a little different, the effective settings for Magigoo may vary. Here are the ranges of effective application.
|Bed Temperature in C||40-60||90-110|
|Bed Temperature in F||104-140||194-230|
How to reach ideal adhesion?
Plastic adhesion is a complex process with many variables. Ideal settings may vary depending on the 3D printer being used, heated bed technology, plastic brand and even the environment you are printing in. Its a really good product, but it would require some effort from your side to fine-tune it for the best performance. We recommend to change the temperature in increments of 5C or 9F.
|SITUATION||Problem||How to solve|
|Bed temperature too low||Not enough adhesion may cause release and warping||Increase in 5-10 degree increments until ideal adhesion|
|Ideal||One perfect print||Keep printing perfect prints|
|Bed temperature too high||May cause “Elephant’s Foot or warping||Decrease in 5-10 degree increments until ideal adhesion|
