bed takes hours to reach printing temperature

 Hi, I bought the cover so the bed of my HS would heat up quicker. But I mostly print ABS, and to heat up to 80C takes hours. HOURS! Oh, I could try with less than 80C, but really I'd prefer around 100C to get good adhesion. Do you see the bed temp graph on the picture? there is no temp increase in 30minutes.


HS stand for High speed? is this a joke?


Leapfrog, There are plenty of people on the forum experiencing this issue, time to do something about it.

best regards, Maarten

Have you had a look at the solution knowledge base to be more exact the following link:

Why is My Bed Not Reaching the Set Temperature Value?


Also please note that the recommended max temperature for the HS bed is 80 degrees. Going over this limit can lead to the the bed not working within its normal limits. The bed will not reach the target temperature, or it will take a long time to reach the target temperature.

Filament Guide

ABS
  • Extrude at ~ 225o C.
  • Requires heated bed.
  • Works reasonably well without cooling.
  • Adheres best to polyimide tape.
  • Filament tolerances are usually tighter.
  • Prone to cracking, delamination, and wraping.
  • More flexible.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives or solvents(Acetone or MEK).
  • Fumes are unpleasent in enclosed areas.
  • Oil Based.
PLA
  • Extrude at ~ 180-225o C.
  • Benefits from heated bed.
  • Benefits greatly from cooling while printing.
  • Adheres well to a variety of surfaces.
  • Finer feature detail possible on a well calibrated machine.
  • Prone to curling of corners and overhangs.
  • More brittle.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives.
  • More pleasant smell when extruded.
  • Plant Based.
