Re: Very difficult to remove from cellboard

Always wear one of the supplied gloves when using the scraper. Since I'm right handed I wear the glove on my left hand and use the scraper with my right hand.

[FEATURE REQUEST] Temperature control

Yes, I know this is a popular request but hear me out. I think this is the time for us to get it for two reasons: 1) UP! really needs this feature to stay competitive - especially for the Mini. Being able to use whatever filament you can get ahold of is a competitive advantage that can keep the Mini...
