Yes, like all materials that need a quite high bed temperature.

But I have learned if often depends on the shape of the model. I had a model which I printed with ToughPLA and had terrible problems to get it off the glass and chipped it several times. Other users reported they have no problems at all and the parts comes off itself when the glass is cold. With another print (model) and ToughPLA I also had no problems.


So give it a try, start with glue stick and if it doesn't stick, try something stronger, but I am sure a glue stick will not be enough.

I used glue stick before I upgraded my printer to buildtak, and I had pretty good luck with it.  There were only a few times that I had a corner pull up.  Like Smithy said, I think it depends on the model.  I would use the brim setting for sure.  I normally used an 8mm brim width, and had the first layer smoosh a litter more than normal.

Good to know, my roll is coming tomorrow so I'll be working with it right away.


PETG currently sticks really well on my bed with Z offset I have with a little bit of glue stuck so this stuff should stick as well, but we'll see.


I'm excited so see how it turns out.
