The adhesion sheets improve build plate adhesion and can be used with most materials. They make a great alternative to a glue stick and are designed for multiple use. To create a flat printing surface, it’s important to ensure the sheet is applied correctly to prevent air bubbles. You can find instructions on how to apply the sheet here.
The use of the front enclosure is strongly advised for most filaments that print at higher temperatures and that may have problems with layer bonding.
The front enclosure controls the temperature inside the printer, which prevents delamination and improves the print surface quality. For the other materials (PLA, CPE, Nylon, and TPU 95A) the front enclosure is not necessary. However, the use of this add-on will not negatively impact print quality and may even lead to more reliable print results.
The adhesion sheets are required for PP and (highly) recommended for CPE+ and PC. These materials require a high build plate temperature, but despite this high temperature, they may still have problems with build plate adhesion.
Adhesion sheets are optional for most of the other materials, as they replace the use of the glue stick.
