PLA, ABS print performance

1.ABS print performance:
In terms of the nature of the material, ABS plastic is fairly easy to print from a hot end point of view. No matter what kind of extruder is used, the material will be smoothly extruded without fear of clogging or solidification. However, the steps after the squeeze are a bit difficult. This material has the property of being cold-shrinked and will be partially detached from the heating plate and suspended, causing problems. In addition, if the printed object is very tall, sometimes the entire layer is peeled off. Therefore, ABS printing must not have fewer heating plates. In addition, I also recommend that you use a closed printer, at least not in the room where the room temperature is too low, causing the material to cool and cause shrinkage.
2.PLA print performance:
PLA is almost the opposite of ABS and often blocks the hot end (especially the all-metal hot end). This is because the PLA is easily attached and stretched after melting. But this does not mean that PLA is not suitable for printing. As long as the bearing is installed, a drop of oil is applied to the hot end, which can be smoothed and not blocked, and printed in a sweet aroma for a long time.
The real fun of the PLA is the time to put it on the printboard. This material hardly shrinks, and even an open printer can print huge objects without worrying that the finished product is suspended, skewed or broken from the board. This material is suitable for 3D printing in public places on the ground.
