I'm having a lot of issues leveling my printer and one failed print came out like this. Is there something wrong with the surface that I need a new bed? This happens to me quite often and I literally can't get it off.

Magnetic bed with filament still stuck to bed

    $\begingroup$ What type of filament are you using? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Interesting, I had heard that some filaments adhere really well to PEI sheets, but not PLA. Maybe the nozzle is too close to the bed and therefore sticking too well. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Are you asking what is causing the filament to stick? or are you asking if the adhesion is not working properly and therefore need to get a new magnetic bed? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @agarza: That's not PEI. It's textured "buildtak clone". $\endgroup$ May 29, 2022 at 16:44

Print the print once more. the first few layers will adhere to the excess material and you can then peel it all off.

If it's flat so you cannot scrape it off you can just print over it. No need for a new bed.

Check your levelling first because if it's sinking into the bed then the nozzle is far too low and you can end up with a scenario where it rips the bed material when you remove a print.
