We’re glad that you choose our Anet A8 Plus 3D printer. Below are some brief introductions about how to install insulation cotton for it.

Step 1


Remove the four clips on the hotbed panel, and then take off the glass sheet.

Step 2


Pull out the power cable gently from its socket.

Step 3


Uninstall the four screws at the corners of the hot bed

Step 4


Take the hot bed out from the printer and place its bottom side up on the desk.

Step 5


Place the insulation cotton onto the hot bed with a paralleled margin of 5-10mm to the power cable socket.

Step 6



Press the cotton down tight to the hot bed surface while removing the isolation paper gradually to ensure thorough adhesion between the cotton and the hot bed.

Step 7


Install the hot bed back at reverse steps according to previous uninstallation procedures.

Step 8


Set parameters required for printing ABS consumables on Cura.

  • Set platform adhesion type to raft or brim to ensure tight ABS adhesion on the printing platform.
  • Set printing temperature to 230 ℃.
  • Set bed temperature to 110 ℃.
  • Set fill density to 20% to avoid edge warping due to the high shrinkage of ABS material.
