In the room with all of your 3D printers, are you printing in PLA or ABS?

We print with PLA only. It's better for the environment

Thank You,

The reason I asked is that I was told that PLA did not like to be covered. And that ABS loves to be covered and closed in. I have a cover on my printer that I have used exclusively with ABS. I have just removed the cover. Now, I am temporarily switching over to PLA. (Because I am out of ABS.) I want to get everything working right. That is interesting. Maybe I can still cover up my printer.

We find that keeping a regulated temperature inside the printer greatly reduced the likelihood of warping. As DJ mentioned we use PLA and found that covering the printers made a huge difference. Give it a shot!
