Rusted Bed?


Recommended Posts

I've only had my Ultimaker 2 for a couple of weeks now. At some point a brown spot appeared in the middle of my printer bed. I think it's rust, but I am not certain. I may have gotten some water on there or something. Has anyone had this problem? What is the best way to clean this?

Also, I have a picture of the problem, but how do I post pictures to the forum?

    It's not rust. That's an aluminium plate. Could be oil?

    Hmm... Not sure how oil could have gotten on there. I was using a sponge to clean the extruder though, so there was some water that dripped onto the glass and possibly could have run underneath onto the plate.

    Could be oil from production. The guide bars are oiled...
