Print plate adhesion tip

Posted · Print plate adhesion tip

I've been using one of those "micro fiber" cloths marketed for cleaning camera lenses (and spectacles) on my UM2 glass bed before and after every print. The one I have is branded by Pentax but there are many others like it.

They are superb for removing any traces of grease and other dirt.

I'm finding the prints "vacuum bond" to the glass each time. Never had to use any glue!

Thought I'd share. It works for me :mrgreen:

    I get comparable results with a damp paper towel. Clean glass gives more adhesion than you need, most of the time:

    Though I still put a bit of glue under any areas that I'm particularly concerned about (such as corners, or support structures or similar detached 'islands' that exist at the start of a print).
