All, I made my first 3D print (of my life) yesterday - the callibration cube. It came out pretty good. The problem is that the print had a little square a rim just 1 or 2 layers thick that stuck to the print bed and cooled. I couldn’t get it off. I eventually used a procedure recomended in another thread, heating the bed to 90 degrees and scraping it off. Unfortunately I scratched the bed in the process. What a bummer to scratch the plate on my first print.
Is there a strategy to strike the balance of getting the print to adhere to the surface but having it easy to remove? I tried bending the plate but it didn’t work at all. It was also very hard to scrape off until I had the bed heated up, and even then I damaged the surface. Thoughts?
Thanks in advance!
