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.
For larger sizes FlexiPlates, we recommend to use the Remount Glue from 3M on the bottomside, to prevent a dome effect, where the center of the plate will rise from the buildplate.
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.
- FlexiPlate™ thickness: 2mm +/-0.1mm
- Length/Width Tolerance: +/-1mm
- Temperature: max. 120 degree Celsius
- Good adhesion for both PLA and ABS
