Re: Bed Tape, Glue, etc

i shave the bed with a razor blade just prior to print and that's it, nothing on the bed, seems to work just fine with PLA

then i let the bed cool prior to removal and parts pop right off

your results will invariably vary

Re: batch fail

i've actually been able to make a usable part, amazing :roll:

was able to accomplish that by raising extruder temp to 215, bed temp 65, speed 50mm

the part wasn't pretty, it has burrs and rough edges

Re: howdy from phoenix, az
