    It doesn't look like it but did you use any bed treatment (UHU etc.)? Did the filament come with any instructions recommending bed treatment? Just wondering with the various posts regarding the glass beds breaking.

    @Ray on the SpoolWorks Edge box it recommends hotend temp of 205 - 225 and bed temp of 60 - 80; UHU Stick for the bed; Fan OFF for 1st layer and ALL other layers @ 50% fan power.

    I am using 205/70 temps and Aquanet hairspray on the bed with the suggested Fan settings as mentioned on the box.

    @JohnEsc looks good, I do like that red, did it come away easily from the print bed when it had cooled down?

    Sure did, I tend to use the 3d printed Thwack hammer to just tap items off of the bed but this part just popped with 2 flicks of my fingers after it had cooled for about 10 mins.

    I think you can probably watch for the bed temp to hit a certain number. At some number, based on surface adhesive and filament material, the pop should occur. For example, with PLA on glue stick, I think it's 36 degrees where it just comes loose.
