I have great luck with hairspray and my AO-101. Since getting 2 TAZ3s I have been running Kapton/Pet tape.
I still get frustrated with Kapton / PET tape. Most of my frustration is chasing bubbles and having to re-apply ABS juice every print. One of my TAZ3s was in need of new tape. I decided to test an idea I have had for a while. I etched the borosilicate glass. Theory is this will help the harispray adhere to the glass and prevent pulling up with the part.
Ultimate goal would be to have a nice thin abs coating that will last many prints. I will post updates here if there is interest.
Etched glass with hairspray:
I tried a few prints. My theory was proven. The hairspray stick perfect to the glass. Unfortunately I am now having pullup/warping issues with my parts. This was not the case with my AO-101 only these new TAZ printers. Tried several temps and the one that worked best was start at 65c finish 55c.
Etched glass with ABS juice:
I washed off the hairspray and applied 2 coats of ABS juice right on the glass. First test pulled up after about 20 layers @85c. It is hard to tell where the ABS juice application is with the etched glass, so I added a couple more layers and tried again. It performed great. 100+ layers with the second test. Held tight and popped right off when cooled down to 40c. The bed was nice an perfect after removing the part. This may be the best of both worlds. Stick of Kapton and low/no application of hairspray. I added another re-wipe of ABS juice and will send another print.
More updates soon.
