Regular 3M blue tape sucks, I use the Coral branded stuff from Amazon:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Coral-71503-Masking-Indoor-Outdoor/dp/B01N0HKC40/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1534550847&sr=8-2&keywords=coral+blue+tape

The yellow tape that comes with the CR10's is even better but the only European stock I can find is about double the price of the Coral tape.

In other news - I have a Hobby Boss White 666 kit coming tomorrow 8) https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00IMYIVQG/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Test print of the trailer has been going for 49 hours so far...

The wheels are proving to be a bit of a hassle to get them to look right, but I'll keep on fiddling with the shape until I get there.

Hi Martin,
49 hours so far!!!!!
Jesus are you on 0.1mm layer height?
Think I would have broken it down into manageable 8 or so hours manageable chunks, I bet you’re going stir crazy lol

I always 0.06 layer height, unless its something like the frame rails for a truck that you'll never see.

Wowzers, do you use 0.06 for the first layer as well?

Hmm, that might just be the reason why you can’t get it to stick to glass with a pritt-stick. The minimum first layer thickness I use is 0,2mm but nine times out of ten I use 0,3mm & I also get it to over extrude by 7%, that way you can lift the whole printer by the part on the bed

Hehe, you just need to squeeze that first layer down properly, if the nozzle is too far away from the surface the layers will lift & peel off, if you’re too close the nozzle will plough off what it’s just laid down.
Honestly glass & a proper pritt-stick are the future

I've gotten my 2 CR10's dialed in pretty well in that regard, the Corel tape seems to be working relaibly for me now. The only thing I would improve would be to maybe get a flatter sheet of glass...

Conversely, when printing TPU on my Anet I have to run a generous nozzle clearance for the first layer otherwise I can't peel the finished tyre off of the bed!

Last few parts for the Ben Hur coming off the printer now. I'll try to find time at the weekend to finish the M8, but I suspect a lot of the fine detail is going to be too small to print sucessfully.

Whatever happened with this trailer project? I could really use one of the M-8's and would love a Ben Hur 1 ton too!

I can understand that. I was also curious as I had seen this Topic pop up and it didn't have any new posting on it before mine.
