No Adhesion to Builtplate with Breakaway Material

Recommended Posts

Hi together,

I tried to build an item with breakaway support but the breakaway material gets no adhesion to the builtplate. I tried to print on the clean plate and I coated the builtplate with the glue stick. Both trials failed. Can anybody  give me an advice?

Thanks, Desmo

Adhesion should work with glue, if not, then maybe your glass is greasy? Clean it carefully with alcohol and then try again and make some stripes with the glue stick and distribute it with a wet tissue.


Another idea is, that your print bed is not leveled correctly. Have you enabled auto leveling? If the distance between your nozzle and the glass is too big, then you get also a bad adhesion.

    • "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.
