Do you have issues with your 3D printed model sticking to the plate?
This can happen with either PLA or ABS printed models, especially if the model has cooled after a long print job and you aren’t using Blue or Kapton Tape.
If your 3D Printer has a heated build plate such as the Ultimaker, there is a simple solution.
Manually heat the build plate to 80 degrees* for PLA and 105 degrees* for ABS, and the model should be easier to remove. Ideally use a thin blade to pass under the model to assist this process.
* These temperatures may be variable with different types of filament and you should experiment with your particular brand.
