How to take out prints with Flexible PLA

Recommended Posts

Posted · How to take out prints with Flexible PLA

Hi,

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?

Thanks.

I usually put the bed around 40C and add some glue stick to make it easier to pull out. It's still hard to remove without leaving a mark.

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.

Looking to print this material on my UM+ too - how did it work/ behave otherwise? What temp were you printing at and how much retraction did you need?

Just let it cool down before trying to take it off, trying to take it while still hot will be hard, if it's stuck let it cool more
