Z-ABS juice, which is a mixture of Z-ABS and acetone, significantly helps with the problem of warping. If your 3D print, especially a big one, does not stick to the platform or if the raft is detaching from the platform during the printing process, prepare Z-ABS juice and apply a thin coat on the perforated plate before reprinting the part.

Cutting the Material

Cut the material into pieces and put them in the container.


Wear safety gloves.

3

Filling up the Container

Pour acetone into the container.

Use 200ml of acetone for 50g of Z-ABS. Stir the mixture once in a while.

Acetone is highly flammable. Do not use open fire near the liquid. Prepare the juice in a well ventilated area.

Ready Z-ABS Juice

After ~8h the material should melt and form milk-like slurry.

Z-ABS juice has to be applied on the heated platform. Turn on the printer and wait until the plate heats up. Then, using a piece of cloth, apply a few layers of Z-ABS juice onto the perforated plate.
