I'm introducing the easy way to remove printed models from heated playform, that I tried.
If use this method, you don't need to wait that the heated platform is getting cold.
Also, You don't need to rip the model off with brute force.
- Cut a stainless plate(0.1mm) to 10cm x 10cm.
- Cover with Kapton sheet on stainless plate surface. ( Before you use Kapton sheet, must sanded down it with some 220 grit sandpaper )
- Clip stainless plate on heated platform.
- Print any models as usual.
- After finish printing, remove models with stainless plate.
- Bend stainless plate little bit, you can remove the model easily.
There are no screw head bumps on my own heated platform - Absolutely flat surface. I'm using a flat top bolt instead of a hexagonal Head.
If you will use Makerbot version of heated platform, you must cut steinless plate off around bolt position for attach to platform.
