    I went with TD's suggestion of Lokbuild, and it works great. I put a little glue stick on there, and it lasts for several prints. I just wet it down between. No more tape replacement.

    I tried gaffers tape and found it didn't get as good adhesion as the textured masking tape. I also found different brands had different levels of microtexture on the masking tape, and the only one which really worked consistently for me was 3M - which unfortunately happens to be the most expensive available. Go figure right?

    As for your 3D PLA, it knows you're about to melt its face off and force it through a tortuously small hole so it is understandably trying to make a break for it. Ba dum tish.

    LOL!! I happened upon a mostly spent roll of painter's blue tape. I tried it and holy cow, it worked so well it stuck to the prints when I added CubeGlue. I tried half a dozen other blue tapes to no avail. So I ordered 6 rolls of the stuff I found. All of it killer stick! You couldn't reuse because it would be on the part. That is how I learned the backside tape was weaker - go figure!

    Good to hear back on the gaffers tape. I still see cube glue as a special formula. Not sure what it is but it works a wonder. I just got 9 tubes from eBay

    I've given up on ABS for anything other than printer parts. I just cannot stop the curling without a heated enclosure. Fortunately I have like 4 reels of the stuff, so I'm good on parts till Ragnarok

    ABS works better for round objects. PETG is fun but not as opaque as I like.

    Bloody printer must have heard me complimenting it, decided to block xD

    While it's miles better than the past, it still has its moments

    BTW I'll write a review of the Marvle in that thread sometime soon. I've tried so many things it has to be the filament at this point

    ==========================================

    Hi, I'm very interested to hear about your Marvle filament experience.

    I'm getting bulges in my Marvle filament (red PLA) , on the nominal size of 1.75, these bulges are 2.51 or so. They then jam, luckily in the feeder guide before the rollers , so altho it stops the print and is hard on the printer, at least it doesn't jam further down or in the hot end.
    I've had 2 bulges so far , many metres apart but can't trust the roll now.

    Are you also getting bulges on the Marvle filament , you just mention it jams.

    Apologies for slow response. I have not had bulge issues with the Marvle filament, but it's been many months since I used the Cube 3. I replaced it with an Ender 3 Pro and passed my cube to my brother so he could use it to get into the hobby as well. My issue with the Cube ended up being blockages in the hotend from retraction
