    So my Pogos burnt out, I just got the v2 print bed. It appears there is a different printing surface on it... Anyone know anything about it? It looks like build tak... Should I adjust bed temps when using it?

    thanks

    If its build tak, cant you print pla without a heated bed? When I used it in the past, getting the part off was a pain.....

    Yes its possible. If parts are hard to get off your z offset is to close to close to the bed

    Even adjusting my Z offset to do much less first layer squish, getting parts off the bed generally involved walking around the room to find them once they came loose.

    I eventually solved this problem by using a BuildTak flexiplate. Much more civilized

    idk? Havent used one yet. My new printer coming Sunday has one from the "factory" so will enjoy being able to try it. I use a builtak spatula slide under the part and done currently (on all machines- even glass lol)
