    hi I've been trying to print with a maker bot replicator 2D using a LLDPE as a fillament.
    when i print the base, the material do to stick to the platform and peels off.
    has anyone printed using LLDPE fillament?

    Pretty sure LDPE is a hassle to print with for a lot of reasons, bed adhesion being one of them.

    Hi with almost all filaments heat the bed slightly between the glass transition temperature and theelting temperature. I would try 5C above industry standard annealing temp. This makes the plastic stay "sticky"

    Wow this threads a blast from the past. The last response was in 2014. I don’t think your advice will be helping anyone on this long dead thread.

    It's almost as though closing threads after X amount of time without a post is a good idea.

    indeed it is. We went back pretty far (and still are) and locking threads. When I'm at a computer vs mobile I'll lock this one. Volunteer workers= volunteer speeds ;)
