The thing that will get stuck to your build surface forever!

If you can get a good spin it will spin for a long time since it is so heavy. Given the shape it prints with 100% infill no matter what your settings are so at 72mm it weighs in at 36 grams!

I have found the tool that works best for me is a wood chisel.
Putting the edge against the edge of my piece lever up and work around to different sides.
the shape of the wood chisel makes a fulcrum to lever up that has
done great for me on lots of stuff.
the tricky part is to make sure to put the edge of the chisel into the plastic and not the Kapton!
I have lots ofÂ experience putting on decals,Â I was an anal retentive child. :)
1. Fold a bit of tape over like it says in theÂ instructionsÂ from maker bot and cut offÂ aboutÂ 8" of tape.
2. Work from the left or right edge on the first side working toward the middle.Â
3. Hold the tape with one hand at a 45% angle to the surface. start by placing the tape on the edge (literally the corner aluminium plate) of the surface 1/8" from the edge of the tape. This way you can pull it off if itÂ isn'tÂ perfect and try again.
4 Work slowly back and forth with one finger rubbing the tape down as you let it down with the other hand.
5. Do the same for the other half but from the center out.
6. I use an exacto to trim off the extra.
Hope this helps

3. Try to remove form build surface.
4. Get really mad and give up!
5. Have a beer and go to bed
6. Come back the next morning and peel off the Kapton tape to get it to come off (anyone else notice the adhesive on Kaptop tape smells like cat urine?)
7. Reapply Kaptop tape and consider waxing the build surface before printing it again.
8. Glue the top together with super glue if it came off in one piece.
See it spin
