How to remove TPU from the textured sheet?

I'm printing TPU (filatech filaflex 40) with my MK3s. After just a bit of tweaking the prints are ok, there's just one problem: they are very hard to detach from the bed. I use the textured sheet, without glue as Prusa guide says it can be done this way. The objects are flexible - by definition 😉 - but it takes a lot of brute force to detach from the bed. The bed is ok, but I fear to deform the prints pulling and twisting on them: very tenaciously attached! Is someone using the glue stick as a separator even on the textured sheet? I'm thinking of doing this, but I'd like to have a reply. Thanks.

I wouldn't use TPU without glue stick on any surface.

I print TPU on my textured and satin sheets often, I normally don't have any issues removing prints from them them, however if your having trouble Windex may be enough, glue stick could help also, make sure your waiting until the sheet and print cool down before trying to remove the print.

 

Good Luck

Put the plate and model outside. Wait 10 minutes. It's near freezing here.

Or in your freezer.
