    Hi Dan,


    the two big issues in 3D-printing are:

    1. the prints don't stick to the bed (while printing)
    2. the prints stick too good to the bed (after printing)

    For first tips you should regard to the following post:



    What kind of printer / print bed do you have?

    Using a heated glass bed, you should regard it's free of grease (finger prints) and as clean as possible; a thin layer of glue or an adhesive sheet of some kind also can help.

    For me, PLA just prints fine on clean bare glass, heated to 60°C.

        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
