Hi @Jory, I wouldn’t want a textured bed as I’d never be able to get that perfect smooth finish you can get from glass. If someone wants, say, a control panel, it’s nice to be able to produce a perfectly smooth, glossy surface; printing on a raft won’t do that. Yes, glass can (and in your case obviously has!) break if there’s a failure by the printer, but a different failure could send your nozzle dragging/digging across the aly plate, or burn out a motor or … well, lots of things. I don’t think you can dismiss glass when it’s got so many advantages just because of one specific failure.
Why not combine the best of both worlds? I use a glass plate that’s easily removable, mainly so I can switch out models for cooling, but it also means they’re easy to properly clean and you can spray them “remotely”, not inside the printer itself. If you’re set against glass, why not look at doing something similar with an aluminium plate, making it easily removable for cleaning/spraying, but still non-breakable?
