How to take out prints with Flexible PLA

Recommended Posts


I am trying my first Flexible PLA with UMO+ heated bed. The print finished well but it just stuck onto the heated bed firmly. I then pulled with force and the print just broke from the bottom layer and the bottom still stuck on the bed now. Can I know how to get such material off? No heating the bed will help?

Now having done 4 piece of flex PLA print, and found the only way to take the print out easily is changing the position of the print to prevent too much solid area stuck on the bed. For example, don't lie the print on the bed totally, flip it up on one side with 30 degree slope angle and remember to print support, then both the printing quality and pulling out effort would be improved greatly.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
