I ran a print today and when it was done I heard some cracking noises. This didn't sound like the typical noises with the ABS releasing from the bed plate. When I went to check, part of the glass bed was still stuck to the plastic, but had chipped away from the bed itself.
This is the 2nd time I've had this happen. I'm printing ABS on glass with a ABS/Acetone slurry for adhesion. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm wondering if a better quality glass plate would perform better.

I've seen .125" thick glass crack in half if left in a printer and allowed to cool slowly, if you can immediately after printing is done remove glass build plate from printer and allow to cool quickly, this will usually cause the part to cool rapidly and make it "pop" off the glass rather than a slow build up of tension till the glass gives way.
