Pro Tips from the ZYLtech Print Lab

 Leveling for PLA filament:

  • If you use the paper method to level, we usually suggest leveling as you would for PLA then setting a Z offset of +.5-1mm.

PLA does not like to “squish.”

First Layer Adherence:

  • We have found that 0% fan for the first 2 layers gives the best chance to avoid curling/warping.

 Layer Adhesion:

  • PLA 3d printer filament will adhere to itself more efficiently when printed with little to no parts cooling fan.  If you are working with fine detail or bridging, you will have to experiment with parts cooling fan settings for best results.

Stringing and retraction:

  • You will typically need to increase the retraction distance and retraction speed vs printing with PLA.  You will need to experiment with stringing and retraction test models to dial in your machine’s settings.
