  • Note: Be sure the fan directs air to the material and not directly at the nozzle.
  • Note: In Slic3r, you should slice with a fan value between 0 and 39, which will result in a fan speed between 0 and 99, since we have our fans run between 0 and 100, not between 0 and 255 like other printers. Also note that we leave the fan OFF for the first five layers.
  • Note: PEEK is normally printed on an ABS base layer; PPSU is normally printed on a PC base layer.
