I just got a new roll of Dutch Orange yesterday from PrintedSolid and launched a 6 hour print.

Sometime overnight the print came off the build plate and I awoke to a big ball of spaghetti.

I wonder if the rising humidity helped cause that. I haven't been using glue stick since just heating the glass to 70C had worked well.

Oh yes it's a nice orange, print yourself off a couple of the treefrogs they look great in the bright colours.
For bed adhersion I use my wife's hairspray, a good quality one mind 'Elnet' with a bed temperature of 45 - 50'C works well, only need to reapply every 10 prints or so.
