T-glase tore glass out of my UM2 bed

Recommended Posts

so I was printing a cookie cutter for my mom with some red T-glase and when I removed it from the print bed it left some wierd marking which after touching them I realized were chunks of missing glass which are now imbedded in the cookie cutter i printed

the build plate was at 60 degrees

hotend at 240

no special adhesive surface, just straight glass.

when removing the print, i just squeezed the print a little bit and it snapped off. no rough housing or use of any tools.

I've printed 3 spools of t-glase so far and this has never happened, I'm at a loss for words.

    • "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.
