Hi everyone. I just got my Prusa last week and only managed to assemble it yesterday. I did 2 prints (Prusa logo and Pug Buddy) and I’m pretty happy with how it went. No issues with assembly or the calibration, the only issue was with the PINDA probe height (which was set too high) but I managed to get it working while adjusting Live Z by -0,750 mm. It’s a bit much but I got the V2 calibration to stick to the bed perfectly. Here are the examples of first prints, so I think the printer is calibrated OK.
I have a question first about moving the printer, I didn’t quite understand this from the manual. If I move it to another surface, I should always preform the Z calibration?
Next question is regarding cleaning the heatbed. Isopropyl alcohol is recommended, but I cannot get it easily here in Croatia (farmacies don’t hold it and I don’t know where to find it yet), but I can get ethanol. While they are very similar and the heatbed should be chemical-resistant, I’d still like to check if someone has used ethanol for cleaning the bed?
Last question is about the print removing. I cannot find spatchulas with rounded corners anywhere. I’ve been to 3 hardware stores in my town and all of them have only spatchulas with sharp corners. I’ve bought a set of 4 very thin spatchulas, so hopefully they won’t damage the bed even though corners are sharp. Are there any other means of safe print removal? Dental floss seems like a good option, but what else?
That’s it for now, thank you!
