You might be wondering to yourself: Do I *really* need to put blue painter's tape on the build platform? The answer is yes. Yes, you do. I thought perhaps I could fly free without the tape at first and life was good until an error during a print of an astrolabe part caused me to change my mind. Here is what the part of my build plate I now call the "bottom" looks like, with some stuck-on pieces that are taking me forever to remove:
You might also be wondering: Is it *really* okay to cold pause and stop the printing, then restart again? Isn't it possible that pausing might cause an inaccuracy in the print job when I restart the print? The answer is yes. Yes, it might. At least if you bump the build plate with your hand when trying to take a picture of the hex fill inside your videogame die.
