Good morning


Is it possible to somehow activate the heated bed to help remove the parts from the heated bed without having to send a print and pause it quickly before it starts printing?


In the menu there is an option to heat the nozzle but it does not have any for the bed


I don't know if there is a cure file or something I can send for this

    Normally you would want to cool the bed to remove prints. The bed is heated for better adhesion. For stubborn prints I sometimes put the glass bed (with print stuck to it) in the freezer.

    Normalmente, querrá enfriar la cama para eliminar las huellas. El lecho se calienta para una mejor adherencia. Para impresiones rebeldes, a veces coloco la cama de vidrio (con la impresión pegada) en el congelador.


    I have had trouble deleting my prints as my glass breaks


    I have discovered that with magigoo I can print a bed temperature of 70º without the piece moving with nylon, and that at temperatures above 90º-100º the piece tends to detach


    I wanted to test if heating as it says in the instructions the piece is easier to take off

    The UM2C has currently no option in the menu to heat up the bed manually. You can just create a GCode.


    But as already said, you want to cool down not to heat up. With more temperature it will be harder to remove your print.


    If you have problems to remove your object from the cool glass you should try another adhesion agent. There are several products from Magigoo and also one for Nylon. Or try Dimafix. It often also depends on the brand you use. Some Nylon filament adheres better than the other one.
