    I am printing ABS. i want to heat the bed to 110. the bed never reaches that temp. i set the bed temp to 100 and after a looooong time it finally reaches 100. what is the max bed temp supported by the sigma? is there anyway to speed heat up?

    The specifications on the web page indicate a maximum bed temp of 100 deg C. My quick research indicates that 110 deg C is preferred for ABS. That would me extra effort to get good prints from ABS on our Sigma machines. I’ve not yet printed in ABS, but have purchased WolfBite for ABS to be prepared for that time.

    In the firmware it’s set to 110 max. For ABS I set the bed temp to 99 and either us wolfbite or Dimafix. If you make sure there is no drafts then you will be fine.
    The amount of time it takes to heat up is pretty typical with Low voltage pcb heat beds.
