    I've added braces, filament feeds, controller, and now blue L.E.D. lights.

    It's not easy. Still not able to print ABS.
    I've learned a lot.
    Thanks ROBO3D!​

    Probably temperature issues (warp, curl, etc.) it can be picky :)

    O yea,I know that for sure. Thats all I printed on my old printer,Now that im printing with PLA to me its way easier to print with. Just wish it didn't stick to the painters tape so dang well. lol But I rather it stick to well than not enough.

    Mark is right. It balls up curls etc. I have played with the temp. Too cool and it jams the head, too hot and it curls and I can't seem to hit the perfect middle.

    If I can recommend try some Kapton tape. I always had my ABS prints stick to that and its very cheap. Its just a pain to stick on sometimes.

    I don't have problems with the glass bed on the Robo3d. You must be using a metal bed right?

    No,its a tape that you will put on your glass bed,The ABS likes to stick to the tape.

    I put Kapton tape on Reprap metal bed, but I don't put tape on the Robo3D's glass bed. Nothing sticks when it cools, but I good adhesion when it's hot.
