    Printing Advice: 

    Advised 3D printing temperature = 195-220C.    Advised 3d print speed = 40 - 100 mm/s.  Advised Heated bed = 50-60C 

    Build platform: colorFABB  PLA/PHA performs well on both heated and non-heated build platforms. For those users printing on a cold build platform we advise applying masking tape to the build area. The rough surface of the tape will provide enough adhesion for the first layer to stick and print almost without any warping. Users using heated build platforms have quite a few options these days. The usual suspects are glass and aluminum build plates. For directly printing on glass or aluminum we advice user to apply glue-stick. A very thin layer will be sufficient to keep your print nicely in place. Another method is dissolving wood glue in water, until the consistency of the mix is quite thin, a bit like milk. By applying just a few drops and smearing this out before you start heating the built plate will create a ver thing layer which holds the PLA/PHA down very well. If applying this method, be careful that you don’t get your electronics wet. Another method that works well with colorFabb PLA/PHA is polyimide tape, or Kapton tape. This tape is available as a very narrow strip or very wide strips which allow you to cover the build plate in one go. When the tape is applied correctly it can last for months. 

    TIP! Take your time leveling the bed and adjusting the the gap between 3d printer nozzle and build plate. A perfect first layer is very important, especially for 3d prints with a large bottom layer. Having the nozzle set too close to the build plate will cause a pressure build up and as a result cause back flow in most hot ends. 

    TIP! PLA/PHA has very minimal warping tendencies, however if you are printing parts which take up the maximum of your build space you might see some warping. If it is very important that your part is perfectly flat than we suggest to turn down the fan that is cooling your part. This allows the material to slowly get rid of heat without warping. After a few centimeters you can turn on the cooling if the part needs it. Please note that 3d printers have lots of different types of hot-end which makes it extremely difficult to give hot-end temperature advice. We feel our temperature advice holds for most 3d printers, but should be considered as a starting point for you to find the temperatures that work in your setup. Do not be afraid to go either higher or lower then our advised temperatures if you feel your set-up needs this
