Need some of your combined experience and knowledge. I print in PLA (195-210 depending upon filament) on an unheated bed. I am having a fair few issues with layer adhesion and bed adhesion. This all started as the temperature dropped, bloomin’ winter
My house is a barmy 9-12 degrees centigrade at the moment, I am too cheap to put the heating on.
Would that environmental temperature have an effect on 3d print builds? Trying to narrow down the causes. The other potential causes are being addressed as I learn more about 3d printing.
Environment definitely does affect prints. In winter adjust my prints warmer by about 5’C although I live in Johannesburg. Where winter is between 5 -15’C snow is something we see in movies. Advise you to get a heated bed. I run it at 40’C and 45 in winter I makes a difference.
Just go get a huge storage bin and enclose t. You would be surprised the head that retains. If your bed is too cold you might need to find a way to heat it up beforehand. I like in southern US so I never really have adhesion issues.
Humility is not a huge problem here. We have dry winters here and I do see my filament lasting longer outside (the box not the house) than summertime. But I think the point here is more heat in winter to make up for temp drops. Seeing as we’re about to change I need to keep in in mind printing.
