So far the best way i've come up with to avoid it is to make sure the platform is hea...

Hi All, I have had an UP plus for a week now, and am having an absolute blast (until the platform heater cable broke so am now waiting for a replacement :cry: ) This is my first experience in 3d printing my own stuff, though I have used shapeways in the past for ordered prints in ceramic etc. Heres ...
