Please read the safety concern section below
Most of you have glass beds, and hairspray is one of the most commonly used bed adherence tools.
I'm not a fan of removing my glass bed every time I re-apply hairspray so I usually fold a paper towel into a little square, and spray the hairspray onto there, and then wipe it on in a thin layer in the middle of the bed. This has worked great, except I need two hands to do this, and I always end up coating the other hand in hairspray.
I was modeled after a can of unscented extra super hold Aquanet, but this has fit with a wide range of compression cans.
If It doesn't mist out and it ends up streaming out, (the hole may seal due to over extrusion), just take a thin needle or pin and tap it into the hole. I used a 0.5mm needle to enlarge my hole, mists perfectly now
1) Print this out
2) Pull off the spray nozzle on your bottle of hairspray
3) Snap this into place
5) You're done!
Now, I have a little sheet of paper towel folded next to the can, and every time I want to apply some hairspray to the bed single handedly, I just take the paper towel, and press down on the mouth quickly, and wipe that on the bed. Nice single even coating of hairspray!
I used concentric supports at 30% with a 0.5mm gap, it supported it great and fits perfectl
After the unfortunate events that took place regarding the hairspray ignition, I hope that this becomes more aware to more people to be more cautious while doing anything similar; not only with hairspray, but with anything flammable. This means to remember to put the lid back on your Acetone, Rubbing Alcohol, anything that can be a risk to your safety. Don't take shortcuts, take the time to remove your glass bed and apply the hairspray in a well ventilated area away from any ignition sources.
Please note that I am NOT trying to promote my design, but offering it as a solution to those who don't want to remove the bed every time
I designed this model a while back for applying hairspray onto a glass bed. It goes over the top of a standard aerosol spray can nozzle and acts as a pressure pump, where you press down onto the opening with a paper towel or rag, and sprays onto there. From there, I give the bed two or three thin even coatings, without having to remove the glass bed or getting any excess mist into any hazardous areas. If you know you aren't going to remember to take the precaution to remove the glass bed before applying, this is one workaround you can use. Again, I appreciate the generous tipping on thingiverse, but I offer this as a free model and please, take the necessary precautions for your own safety. And to the family who had to go through this, we send the best wishes your direction, words fall short of expressing our sorrow for your loss.
When installing, remove the spray nozzle on your aerosol spray can and carefully put this on. When I first put it on, I thought it was a good idea to just press this onto it, and resulted in hairspray in my face. This has happened to others as well, and there are two solutions that I have heard.
1) position it on top of the nozzle and with one palm, slam downwards onto the opening directly quickly. This will snap it into place before it sprays everywhere
2) use needle nose pliers and grip the opening of the nozzle to avoid it being compressed inwards, and snap this into place.
