Do you have any experience with this filament? I have been trying to print this for several days with no success 😞

The first layer sticks ok but as the shape builds up the components detach from the surface. this is a pity as the material has

very interesting mechanical properties.

Hmm... An engineering filament.  Not cheap.

Check out https://visionminer.com/.  There are videos on their website.  Their Nano Polymer bed adhesive is amazing.  They claim it works with almost any filament.

Try https://visionminer.com/products/nano-polymer-adhesive-sample  Also see full size bottles on Amazon. 

Uber expensive but one application lasts a VERY long time.  Don't clean bed between prints, just refresh surface with 99% IPA using Nitrile glove. Reuse the same glove each time because it picks up the valuable coating.  When dry, running glove on surface should feel very grippy. Add a few drops of NP every 5-10 prints.    Do initial bed clean with Windex then IPA then water per website instructions.  I've also used NP on a FR4 bed surface with ABS where part sticks too good and can be almost impossible to remove.  Letting surface cool to room temp helps greatly, but they also talk about having to remove parts before they completely cool when printing high temp parts like PEEK.  It would absolutely destroy a glass bed.  Curious to hear about your results.

I was having problems printing a (64mm x 135 mm) cylinder split down the center vertically and stood vertically.

After a couple of failed attempts I was frustrated and wondering just what to do........... THEN I remembered reading this post, looked for it, re-read it and said why not.

I ordered a sample of the adhesive, put some on the build plate and successfully printed my object.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU....... Great stuff!
