Z-ABS juice is a mixture of Z-ABS and acetone, which significantly helps to resolve the problem of warping. If your 3D prints, especially the big ones, are not sticking 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.
Things to Prepare
To prepare Z-ABS juice, you will need:
- a metal or glass container,
- Z-ABS Pure White (you can also use the support or raft remains)
- a pair of pliers,
- safety gloves.
Cutting the Material
Cut the material into pieces and put them in the container.
Wear safety gloves.
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.
Ready Z-ABS Juice
After ~8h the material should melt and form milk-like slurry.
Z-ABS juice has to be applied while the platform heated. Turn the printer on and wait until the plate heats up. Then, using a piece of cloth, apply a thin layer onto the perforated plate.
