Bed preparation is an essential key to a successful print. Our recommendation when printing Polycarbonate is to use what is known as ABS Slurry as a bed adhesive.

Materials Needed

  1. Acetone
  2. ABS (we recommend using natural filament stands if available)
  3. Metal, glass, PP (polypropylene) or HDPE (high-density polyethylene) plastic container (the recycle code on the container will indicate what type of plastic it is)
  4. Scale or something for measuring
  5. Scissors, snips or cutters

ABS Slurry Instructions

  1. Measure 50mL of Acetone into your container
  2. Cut or chop ABS into small pieces measuring roughly 20g, placing it into your container of Acetone
  3. Once submerged in Acetone slightly agitate the chopped ABS by stirring the mixture
  4. Let mixture set-up overnight until all ABS pieces have dissolved
  5. Once done depending on how much ABS is used the mixture should have the consistency between milk and paste.

Bed Preparation

  1. Because this mixture uses Acetone it is NOT recommended on any printing surface except kapton tape on glass or directly to the glass.
  2. Using a small foam or bristle paint brush put a thin coat on the area where the print will be
