Hi I gull.

Your 'joke' about marketing the adhesive has been done commercially by 3D Systems ! Their 'Cube glue' is around £10.00 for a small tube!

Very interested to hear about the model aircraft dope. Do you have any specific brand names? I am presently printing on 4mm acid etched glass, and to my shame, using the 3D systems cube glue. Great results though, and able to print large objects covering most of the bed.

---sorry for the newbie question here but...
these labels if i understand properly are adhesive, if you peel them.
So do you peel them and stick them to your plate ? or to the kapton film ?
I guess not as you are talking about soap water. But i'm not sure how you fix the label to your plate, and do you still need kapton ?
sorry for the newbie question...
I use the same, I never used soap water, just stick them on the bed (which is covered by Kapton which I use fro NinjaFlex only).

I can peel it off (more) easily by heating bed to 60+°C because @ room tempoerature it sticks too good (also for some PLA or NinjaFlex).

Just printed 3x 15x20x5cm parts on same sheet without cleaning or anything in between :)

Nothing like adding the glass to the plate! This must be the most simple and effective upgrade one should make. but all the springs should be replaced too if the glass is too heavy.

I've also noticed that the weight of the glass makes the bed more stable and helps avoid vibrations.
