Hi @Kerberg, I moved your topic where I think it is more appropriate.

Usually if you just let it cool down it comes off pretty easy.

Alternatively, you could keep it under cold water. I never tried canned air.

It is hardened glass so it won't crack that easily, but if you wait for just a few minutes you should be able to just take it off.

For fast prints I bought a second glass from ultimaker. So I just swap it recalibrate and print while the glass cools naturally.

After it cools to room temp, if the print doesn't come loose easily, put the build-plate in the freezer for 15 minutes, and the piece should pop right off.
