Posted · Glass bed upgrade

They're like motorcycle saddles...If you are happy with the one you have why change?  You might get glass and hate it.

 

I like mine (from Creality).  I use hairspray as an adhesive.  Sometimes things stick overly well but the handy dandy putty knife and a tap with a little shoe repair hammer convinces the parts to release.  The hard part to deal with is the clips because there are times when the print head will need to go where the clips are.  I finally glued some small aluminum angles to the underside of the metal bed and they act as edge locators for the glass.  No clips at all.  It was either that or start wearing safety glasses when I was printing.  I'd forget about the clips and the printer would shoot them right across the room.
