VISUAL DEFECTS FROM USING GLUE STICK

When I use glue stick for improved bed adhesion, I see the evidence of the glue embedded in the printed part, like lines, dull finish, etc. Is there any way to use glue stick without this detracting appearance?

    I print on a glass plate.  Have been applying wood glue/water mix with great results.  I mix by eye, what seems to be about 10:1, water to glue.  Apply with cheap foam brush while bed is heating and get real smooth coating that gives good adhesion anc very smooth bottom print.  I have no idea how this would work on other bed media.

    Just wait until you use a print outside and it gets wet for a while... The prints will get all nice and glue-y 😉

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
