In that I've only ever used the textured PEI plates, I just use a basic, nylon reinfoced spudger to remove parts. They don't mark the surface and can generally remove anything I've encountered.

I also have two plates so that I can take the hot one off and let the parts cool a bit, which in turns often allows them to separate naturally.

people will grumble now, but I use a sharp steel blade and have rounded the corners so that the PEI film is not damaged. For the textured sheet (and also the PEI foiled) I use a self-printed plastic spatula.

Let focus a little discussion on Prusa print surface friendly print removal tools.  Who has one?

I'm fond of iomaa’s print removal wedges. They're handy for removing completed prints without touching the PEI print surface.

I also use plastic razors.

I like the plastic scraper recommended by Bob at Muppet Labs for removing stuff from the bed.

  • plastic scraper is handy for easily removing parts without them flying across the room as can happen with duller tools. This one uses plastic razor blades which are far sharper than anything I can print, but nowhere near as dangerous as metal blades.

I use two devices.  One is a smaller thumb-ring pry tool which I downloaded the .stl from some site I can't remember, and the other is almost like a car windshield scraper, again downloaded from one of the usual suspect sites.

I use the larger one most.  When it gets dull, I just reprint it.
