Removing parts with cold-spray

Post by kimmoli »

FYI: I use cold-spray to remove PLA parts from the bed, no need to cool bed down between prints.. works fine for me.

Nice tip! But is there a risk of warping the hot bed? Shouldn't think so since the hot bed temperature is relatively cool.

Use with care... i spray it directly to the part, and it can atleast warp the part - i had one box-frame about 100x10mm and it was moving like a snake when sprayed. Bed needs to be cleaned after this, as there is some residuals from cold-spray.
