Hi qharley,

You can find a video and some more info in this blogpost: http://www.vanalleswatontwerp....

We will post a video soon. The printer can take a hit, but the idea is to find the perfect balance in stickyness for the first layer.

Hi Adam, we are printing on a hotbed so the idea is to configure the end g-code to wait for the bed temperature to cool down. This should in theory make it more reliable. However the m190 command does not wait for a temp to cool down, it only waits for a temp to warmup. So that's a firmware issue which needs to be solved.
