Bed way too sticky PLA

Recommended Posts

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


Way too sticky..


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

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

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
