This is a lulzbot taz 5, though it should work on othwers,
I suppose, but some of the properties are probably not like most glues.
I usually use PLA for printing. I have used this for ABS, which does seem to stick better. I have found that the tape is harder to use than the hairspray, but I have not used it very much, and it leaves gunk on the bed. I also usually use a heated bed for PLA, but I have had problems with adhesion even with a heated bed. I also live in a climate that can cause problems (very dry and hugely variable temperatures).
I have tried the tape, but I have had difficulty removing prints. I also needed to re-adjust the nozzle height. I think this is a bit easier, and also the hairspray lasts longer than a role of tape.
