Definitely preheat to insure, that the print surface has the same temp as the bedheater.
What @JesperJuul said is so true, especially at higher temps. You can't just launch the gcode and hope the bed gets there in time! You must preheat.
In time of what? Even if you wait for the bed to reach temp before starting to heat the extruders?
It makes little sense guys, the printer always waits for the bed ....
What I'm saying that the there is noticeable lag between the thermistor indicated temperature on the PCB and the aluminum bed. If you doubt me set the bed temperature manually and touch the bed periodically as the indicated temperature climbs. Admittedly this will vary from BigBox to BigBox since the contact area between the flexible PCB and the aluminum bed plate will vary.
I have my "bed lifter" to press the PCB against the plate, that way the temperature reading increases much much slower than when I remove the "bed lifter" and the lag is drastically reduced. So I am pretty good starting prints when the printer waited on the temp...
I make sure the PCB is in full contact of the BED plus always set the temp on first couple of layers 5% more.
btw how do you guys clean it?
My BB is down (waiting for replacement titan hobbs) but better ask before I do any damage!
I clean my regular PEI sheet with alcohol. And sometimes Acetone when it is cold.
Unfortunately only in German...
@Alex9779 Do you even read what I post? lol
For cleaning it says use Acetone or break cleaner, no sharp things to get parts off...
Me? Yes that's why I wrote 'too'...
Ohh I thought you were selective reading like my wife selective listens.
I thought you were adding acetone to the list
Me - Alcohol
You - Acetone too
Too because you mentioned Acetone already...
Yes, meaning you use acetone too
Okay, back to the topic at hand.
Yes and we filling up the thread with junk I don't use alcohol because I'd rather drink it
So @Alex9779 have you gotten the parts so stuck that you can't remove them? I do that sometimes on my PEI, whether it be the first layer is squished too much, the bed is too hot, or I am printing too slow. Or do they just pop off regardless?
