Heated Bed Not 100% Hot Up Front
#1
I've noticed that I cant get ABS to adhere to the front 1/4 of the bed, closest to the door. I'm fairly sure it's due to the bed not heating enough up front. I dont want to over heat the rest of the bed to get the front up to temp. I run it at 100c.

Any modifications I can do, or any replacements that are the go-to for this printer? I'm running repetier so I can do whatever I want as far as hardware or software mods.

Thanks!

It's possible your bed is not level enough. If you want more even heat, you can try adding a layer of glass or aluminum on top of the existing glass. However, I doubt than uneven heat is your problem considering the temperature. It's just a guess. You might also try some abs sludge on the glass.
