    I am a walking disaster area. FEMA has declared a mobile perimeter of Ten Feet (3M for the rest of the world) of which I am the epicenter.  :p

    But, I do learn...LOL

    Yes that's what those little triangle warning stickers are for.

     

    They don't work. They're just something you look at before choosing to completely ignore them. :)

    And I think all 3D people with some hours on their printer have been there, haven't we? Myself, I've got several build plates so I can do a quick swap when a print is finished and keep the machine going. I'll be printing a bunch of PLA parts, then switch to ASA. And then completely forget that the build plate is now 85 degrees. I can always manage to remove it so I end up holding it before it registers that this is not something I should be holding without gloves. That's the story about how I invented 3D print/glass plate juggling.

    So true!!

    Being American, I keep forgetting that this is all metric and 85°C certainly ain't the same as 85°F. LOL
