    Hello,

    I'm having trouble getting larger prints to release from the print bed. I'm using PLA with my Flashforge creator pro. Any tips? I do not want to break the print bed!

    I've tried 50c as a preheat temp. That works for smaller prints.
    At 100c I get goopy melting with my spatula.

    Any tips are appreciated! Thanks

    Well... I haven't tried it myself, but glue stick apparent works both to stick your print down as well as help you release it at the end. Plus, it cleans up with water, so you can use some water on the edges to get it to release.

    Another thing to try is to put the bed and print in the freezer for a while that can help it pop loose.

    What is the print bed? Is it the blue stuff that comes with it? If so then yes it can be tough. Glue stick may help and also letting it cool completely could help.
    What material? PLA? If so then 65 is as hot as you really need to go.

    hi, I received my Flashforge Creator Pro (2016 update) yesterday and my first test print in ABS also stuck really strongly to the blue tape covered bed. Do you recommend a thin layer of glue ? I previously had a Geeetech prusa with a glass plate and used a PRITT stick for adhesion. A lot of posts on the forums seem to be about how to make things stick, not how to remove them, so any tips would be appreciated.

    my advice is to replace glue, tape, glass ete with a sheet of printbite: https://flex3drive.com/printbite/

    I've been using one for over a year now and have needed no glue, scrapers, tape, hairspray etc during that time.
    Prints stick when the bed is hot and can be simply lifted off when the bed is cool. Or, if you're impatient like me, a sharp tap with a hammer: I tend to use the flat back of this axe: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1043415
    Handle is rolled up newspaper.
    My printbite thread s here: http://3dprintboard.com/showthread.p...ntbite-surface
    List of my results with different materials is on page 3.

    It's not quite as good as the manufacturers claim - but it's infinitely better than anything else out there at the moment.

    Put it this way. The whole sticking and removing issue is not something I give a thought to anymore.
    You have to experiment and tweak settings to get the best results for each material. But once you've got it dialled in you simply print and remove. With no hassle and nothing else ever needed.

    I have recently purchased a Flashforge Dreamer. I have done about 5 prints well but now the filament is starting to bunch up around the extruder. I have tried to level the plate several times but I am still not getting a good print. I want to try and change the bed temp but I do not see the option to do this. Can anyone help me with this?
