Easier Part Removal from PEI, Tip

This was new to me, if you knew this tip then ignore it. Basically as the skirt is being laid down, you put a piece of painters tape in the path of where the part will be. Doing so as the skirt is being laid down helps with the placement. But now you have a place to start trying to pry the part from the bed. After the part is finished he sprays alcohol under the tape, to help get it started. This is especially useful for large flat models that have alot of “stick force” to the print bed - lol. It’s pretty easy to try.

example just to demonstrate tape placement. This part would be no trouble to remove.

I could have used this tip making the paint holders for my wife pictured below, they where a pain to get off the print bed.
