If the sticker that is on your glass plate fell off

SandervG,

In your original post, you neglect to indicate which side the sticker is placed on during the manufacturing process, non-tin or tin?  I assumed sticker up when I set mine up, however I've not done the water test yet.

    I gather that the sticker should be down (print on opposite site), but I would also like official confirmation. (I have a newer glass plate as I purchased my UM5 late 2019.)

    In my opinion it makes maybe a difference when you print on plain glass. As soon as you use some adhesion like glue or adhesion spray, it makes no difference which side you are using. I use both sides regulary without any difference.

    Thanks Smithy, good to know.

     

    Just got my S5 a few days ago, so still doing everything by the numbers until we get some hours clocked up. So far adhesion is superb, even with ABS.

     

    PVA has been more of a challenge.
