Object removal plays a part in the longevity of the adhesive. Its commonly recommended that the bed temp is ~50C when removing projects. Using a thin blade spatula to work your way around the object to remove is a gentler way of removing an object.

Prying up and "popping" the project off the bed is probably the worst for the adhesive.

Hi folks. Just wanted to add a picture to the thread. I don't think the particular material causes issues, I think it is just a function of heating the bed to 110 deg C, which is causing separation. Trapped volatiles or water durning manufacturing/assembly? Here is what my bed did by the third print at this temperature:

I haven't noticed any issues in printing yet.

This is really neat: https://ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi ... 000214.pdf

If that's a new printer bought direct from LB, you should send the picture in to their customer service. That's definitely not normal.

If you bought the printer from a third party or amazon... you should contact them... if still under warranty.
