Hello guys!

Can any of you explain to me what solution is best?

What use you and how you are?

Lacquer on hot dish is what I use, but I've seen that too many people who do not use it anymore!

Second Buildtak solution (I do not know how it works)

Third solution (blue plate)

Fourth solution (brown plate)

    It will depend on the materials you use, and if your printer has a heated bed or not.

    - For PLA you can just wipe the glass plate with salt water, and print on that, with the bed heated to 60°C. Thus absolutely requires a heated glass bed, it does not work on a cold bed.

    - For any other material, you could try gr5's method: wipe the glass plate with dilluted Elmer's wood glue (1 part glue in 10 parts water if I remember well), and let that dry in a thin layer.

    - I have also heard good comments on 3DLAC spray.
