Bed way too sticky PLA

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Bed way too sticky PLA

I know it sounds counterproductive but one of my umo+ (build with a umo bed kit and more stuff) has the glass so sticky that I can't remove the prints even at 22C

I know overtime the stickyness will wear off since this glass only has 10-15 prints on it. But on the main side (sticker) I did chip the glass and scratched badly to remove a large print.

Scraches and chipa on the other side

So my question its. How can I make it less sticky (just a bit) so I can keep printing and avoid having to move it to a freezer...

Before printing I just clean it with windowwasher product. No hairspray or anything

maybe try a different cleaner? I normally use handsoap, sometimes (but not a lot) in-between prints I wipe the glass with some cleaning alcohol on a paper towel.

I suppose. But I use the same product on the other 2 umo+. One needs hairspray, the other nothing and stuff pops at 34 and this one it's way to sticky. Specially since it made the glass chip.

I'll try not to clean it... It maybe put my hands after some fries? XD

Finished another test. Cleaned first as always but this time changed bed temp to 50 instead of 60 as I always do. It came out quite ok at 25C
