I 3d printed stuff last night and it worked great.  I scraped off the stuff on
the print bed and exposed the actual glass print bed!  it's still good except
there are a couple of serious craters.  Not sure what to do about the craters,
perhaps fill them in with caulk?  Silicone caulk sticks to glass.

If anyone wants to 3D print something please let me know and i'll show you what
i've learned about doing it.
