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

    • Print Core CC | Red for Ruby
      Q: For some users, abrasive materials may be a new subject matter. Can you explain what it is that makes a material abrasive when you are not sure which print core to use?
      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "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.
