Using an adhesive on the R1+ print bed
To ensure the plastic print sticks to the glass print bed, you can use an adhesive. There are a couple of different techniques for prepping your print bed. Two of the most common items we use at Robo are a gluestick or hairspray.
Before applying either adhesive, move the heated bed all the way out towards the front of the printer.
1. Gluestick (supplied with your tool kit):
Open the gluestick and apply a single layer perpendicularly to the printing surface of the print bed. Make you apply the glue smoothly so there are no bumps on the print bed.
2. Hairspray (AquaNet works very well):
When using hairspray you can either raise the extruder (using the motor controls on MatterControl), or cover the extruder and rods with a piece of paper or a shield as you spray to ensure no hairspray is applied to the any of the rods inside the machine.
