I use SimpleGreen to clean off the surface of the glass and wipe it till it squeaks.
Then generously slather acetone/ABS slurry over the bed, pre-heat it for about 10-15 minutes and get printing.
When the print is done, I leave it to cool and listen for the *crack* of the part detaching from the bed due to shrinkage from cooling.
Reluctantly, I guess I will have to try printing ABS on the glass after all (for large prints). ;P
So I've done some testing with WolfBite on glass. 2 hours of testing at 240 nozzle and 100 bed. Fun stuff
- small 1.25 x 1.25 print didn't even make it to the end of the first layer before it was ever-so subtly pulling away from the glass. Made a nice smooth surface, just didn't adhere worth a jack squat. I'm rather annoyed. lathered a little, then I lathered a lot on same result.
