Aluminium or Glass build plate for PC ?

Posted · Aluminium or Glass build plate for PC ?

Hello everyone, 

 

I have a question about the type of build plate I should use to print with Ultimaker PC. 

I heard that as PCis really strong, using the aluminium build plate was better for the printing. 

Could you tell me your experience with PC on glass plate ? 

 

Thank you

    Marianne,

     

    I have been printing Ultimaker PC with a glass plate and glue or Dimafix.

    Got no problems at all with bed adhesion. If you try to pull it out while it's hot you may find it difficult. Just let it cooldown for a bit.

    Due the fact that the aluminum build plate is not available, the decision is easy 🙂

    But I also got good results with Dimafix and in worst case you can use the UM adhesion sheets.
