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

      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
