You print on glass or glue stick on the bed adhesive? I got some good first layers on the bed adhesive, but once I had glass dialed down and was using hairspray, dear lord was the first layer basically a mirror.

PEI sheet stuck to creality glass. I had the creality glass for a bit til I took a chunk out of it with just PLA which was surprising.

I don't use anything on it. Just clean it with ISO after every print. I mainly do PLA, PETG and TPU.

Got the wiring pass through system finalized on the gantry.
I also knocked it out of the park on the Belt tensioning set up for the y axis belt. Twangs like a gitar.

Don't mind the clamp plate that's Askew I goofed on the relief to clear the linear bearing housing.

By next weekend we should actually be able to melt plastic!

Backside view. Really hard to fit it into the frame....

about to give TPU a try on this BIQU H2. so far it handled PLA and PETG without a hiccup. especially after I printed a better mount setup.

The next thing I am going to do is clean the Z rod, add silicone rubber instead of springs, and add spring loaded anti-backlash nuts for the Z rod. I have some Z issues that hopefully resolve it.

This stuff is cool. Little bit softer then 95a. Gonna try some coasters too.

Octopus came out good. And this is at 40MM/s and PLA retraction settings. Definitely recommend the BIQU H2 hotend at this point.
