Tired of printed parts coming loose during print?
Tired of using glue, tape, ABS juice and other stuff to get enough adhesion to the buildplate?
Here's the solution: The FlexiPlate™
The FlexiPlate™ will provide enough adhesion to prevent lifting, yet allow for safe release of finished prints. The special chemistry of the FlexiPlate™ provides excellent adhesion, flexibility, and a clean release of your printed part. You can flex the plate to remove your part, skim it off with a spatula, or use a combination of both. With the FlexiPlate™ there's no need to waste time replacing damaged tape, cleaning up adhesives or hair spray, and no worries about broken glass.
With the FlexiPlate™ you can print again and again on the same spot, without having to clean or prepare the surface.
The FlexiPlate™ is not absolutely flat and you would need a flat surface like your heatbed to clamp it down to.
The thickness of the FlexiPlate™ is 2mm if the length and width is smaller than 250mm. For large FlexiPlates™ where the length or width is above 250mm, the thickness is 3mm. The increased thickness is to prevent a dome effect, where the center of the plate will rise from the buildplate, even though it is clamped securely to the heatbed. Please let us know if you want another thickness than the default, and we can make a custom version.
Please note the FlexiPlate™ will bend when heated and it's essential to have it clamped sufficient to the buildplate/heatbed.
If the hot nozzle touches the FlexiPlate™ it can make a mark or even a hole.
