Problem: “I can’t remove my part from the build platform.”Sometimes, a part can be stuck to the print surface really well and you’re unable to get good leverage to pop it off. When printing a pyramid shape, it’s even difficult to get at it with conventional tools. Here are a few tips:
- Bring the temperature of the heat bed up (or down) to about 60C for ABS.Wrap the jaws of a pair pliers with a rag and try to get some leverage somewhere on your part.Wrap the end of a chisel with some tape and carefully work at a corner of your part. The tape just protects your Kapton or other printing surface from getting scratched.
