Has anybody tried "glass beading" shot blasting the glass plate to assist in first layer adhesion.?

One side only incase it does not work.

Nope; are you trying to clean the plate or scour it? If cleaning I would be inclined to use something softer than glass such as walnut beads, which we use for cleaning carburettor bodies.

Just to reduce the surface area and increase the pressure between the filament and the glass.

It would give any gasses or air bubbles from the hot filament a place to escape, as opposed to lifting from a flat surface.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
