Yes I came to the same conclusion and for the fine snowflake prints I am using glue stick and always washing it clean with water in-between prints. The prints don't release very easily but am able to get them off without breaking by using a razor blade. Also printing with the nozzle and bed higher than normal. Too bad. This unit printing well out of the box but after a few weeks it went downhill fast. At least the autolevel still works.
