Maintaining/Cleaning Glass Heated Bed

Recommended Posts

For some materials the glass needs to cool down more for the print to come loose. Colorfabb xt may need to cool till 20 or colder. If your room temp is too high you can put the glas+print in the fridge...

I once and a while clean the glass with soap and water. Make sure to use plenty of water to remove all soap. And always try to avoid touching the glass.

I do use glue on bronzefill... but never for pla. For small parts i prefer a brim.

As others have said, once the bed cools then the prints will pop off with nearly zero force. I clean mine with dish soap (washing up liquid) and hot water then dry it with a clean hand towel, I don't use anything extra for adhesion when printing win PLA.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
