A glue stick is supplied with the Ultimaker 3D printers to improve build plate adhesion during printing and improve release after cooling down. While the UHU glue stick works well for the materials that are supplied with the 3D printer (Tough PLA and PVA), we recommend to use advanced glues for printing with engineering materials.
For build plate adhesion it is important to use a well levelled and clean build plate and a stable print environment. General tips and tricks on design guidelines, how to fix warping and how to adjust printing parameters can even further help reducing warpage of your 3D printed model.
The following glues are recommended for each of the Ultimaker materials. Reliable build plate adhesion and release for engineering materials can be accomplished with Magigoo adhesives.
|Ultimaker PLA||UHU stick|
|Ultimaker Tough PLA||UHU stick|
|Ultimaker ABS||UHU stick|
|Ultimaker CPE||Magigoo original|
|Ultimaker CPE+||Magigoo original|
|Ultimaker Nylon||Magigoo PA|
|Ultimaker PC||Magigoo PC|
|Ultimaker TPU95A||Magigoo Flex|
|Ultimaker PP||Magigoo PP|
|Ultimaker PVA||Follow recommendation for build material or UHU stick|
|Ultimaker Breakaway||Follow recommendation for build material or UHU stick|
Caution: For Ultimaker ABS we recommend the use of UHU stick to prevent excessive adhesion and avoid the risk of damage on the build plate or printed part.
