I have tried tape on glass on the UM2 and it works just fine.
, it cause the object higher then the current printing layer
This is caused because of shrinking. When something like the bottom portion of the spider's abdomen is printed, as the upper layers are pulled inwards, the sides go up and the head hits it as it tries to print.
There are 2 solutions. You may need to do both solutions:
1) Heat. Keep the bed near the glass temperature of the plastic so that it doesn't shrink so much (70C for PLA, 100C for ABS). This might be sufficient. You might want to also reduce the fans to 50% and add a box over the top of the machine or a piece of plastic covering the front of the machine so that the air near the spider stays warm but hopefully this is not necessary.
2) Support. Usually support holds the parts *up*. In your case you need to hold the part *down*. I recommend meshmixer and add support in the places where the print head was hitting the spider. This solution alone is also probably enough to fix your problem. More on meshmixer:
pay particular attention to how to rotate your part in the "annoyances & limitaions" section and also note that there is a small error where he set layer height to "0.5" mm and it should be the layer height you print at e.g. .2 or .1mm.
May I ask why you are using tape? Are you printing with a cold platform? I don't know how well tape works with a hot bed, I imagine not very well at all.
I would remove all that tape, clean your platform well, apply a very thin layer of the supplied glue and spread it out with a damp cloth/sponge and then try your print again with the heated bed activated (it should be active by default) and with brim.
20% infill is a good standard amount of infill that should work well for most prints.
