Removing Your Print
Removing prints from the build plate is much easier because of the ability to remove and bend the build plate. Different thermal expansion of the steel sheet and plastics used in 3D printing also helps with detaching prints after the plate has cooled down.
When the printing is finished, let both nozzle and heatbed cool down before removing the printed object. Always handle the printed objects when the temperature of the bed and nozzle drop to room temperature. When the bed is hot, objects are very hard to remove. Remove the steel sheet from the printer and bend it slightly; prints should pop off.
If you experience any troubles removing the object (especially the small ones), you can use a flat tool like a spatula with rounded corners to prevent damage to the PEI . Slide the spatula under the corner of the object and gently push until the print pops off.
Removing the model from the PEI print surface by bending the steel sheet. If the prints still do not want to get loose or you need to bend the sheet too much (which you should not do), try to bend the sheet inwards .
