Blue Tape - can't remove model

Post by calidude89 » Wed Apr 25, 2012 1:26 pm

I tried printing onto the blue tape without a raft and had varying results. When the nozzle was not close enough to the platform the plastic did not stick obviously, but when the nozzle was close enough for the model to print it seemed it was too close. I could not get the model off without a lot of effort which resulted in me having to re-tape the whole platform. Also the tape was stuck to the bottom of the model. It took forever and a day to peel it off.

Is anyone else having this problem? I saw a video of someone peeling the model off blue tape and it just popped right off.

Why would you peel off the tape from the base if it stuck to it? Surely you'd just remove the raft and then it would be gone?

I was using blue masking tape for as long as it has been known, before perf board, and it rarely sticks hard to it. However, use a bit of perf board as it is better still.

I use the blue tape, no problem here at all.
