Voron TAP and Bed Adhesive

Question

Hi all!

I've got a quick question about using a print bed adhesive with voron tap. Has anyone had any success with using the tap mod with a print bed adhesive like a glue stick/abs slurry/hyperlok? I'm worried about the nozzle getting stuck to the print bed and damaging it.

I tried to search around to see if anyone was discussing this but couldn't find anything at all. To get around this, should I just try and QGL/mesh/home before the print and remove those protocols from my start macro?

I've used glue stick with Tap, no problems. Most bed adhesion products are more for a separation layer, and are generally low force adhesives (not sure if that's the right term). Glue stick barely holds 2 pieces of paper together, ABS slurry only really bonds ABS-like plastics together, etc. Also, any interaction that would happen is likely lessened with Tap by probing with a "warm" nozzle, which you should do for filament residue on the nozzle anyway.

TLDR: No problems using bed adhesives and Tap

I'm with the others on this one... No issues with the tip sticking to the bed when probing with bed adhesives.

I've used hairspray, Elmer's glue stick and my current goto adhesive MagiGoo. 👍
