Cleaning

After a few prints, I am noticing plastic being stuck in the tiny holes on the printing platform. Should I be trying to remove that? Also, any cleaning maintenance tips we should know about?

I’ve been printing on perfboard with a couple of Afinias for a year now. I find that cleaning the plastic from the perfboard holes is completely unnecessary, and in fact detrimental to adhesion. The first layer of a new print will soften and bond with the plastic already in the holes. An acetone wipe just before printing starts will help the process. Scrape the board flush (on both sides) with a sharp scraper between prints.
