Have you ever experienced something like this? Heated bed glass failed :(

Posted · Have you ever experienced something like this? Heated bed glass failed :(

I have left the printer to work for 2.5h for a print, using Colorfabb HT, a filament which requires 100+ degrees (celsius) for the heated bed. Now, just arrived home, removed the print and ...suprise! Pieces of heated bed glass are stuck inside the print! How is that possible!?

    its caused by leaving the print on the bed while the print cools. to prevent this from happening, remove the print before the bed cools down

    There are a few materials on the market that can suffer from this effect of pulling pieces of the glass out. T-glase from taulman suffers from this effect as do a few other materials on the market. i would highly recommend with a material like this to either remove the part from the buildplate as soon as the print is done, or have the plate stay heated until you are able to remove the print.

    I had this happen once with PLA but mostly this happens to people with PET and other less common materials. Just flip it over. If you live in a town/city where there are glass windows then chances are you can get very inexpensive glass made to order any size/thickness you ask and ground down for less money than a nozzle or 2 cups of coffee.

    It's not pyrex glass. Ultimaker uses "tempered" glass but ordinary glass works fine. The unusual part is the thickness. But still cheap and easy to get.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
