BuildTak is proud to announce the latest addition to our line of 3D printing accessories called the BuildTak FlexPlate system. As a company dedicated to trying to make the 3D printing experience easier, our two part system, is meant to take the hassle out of print removal.

The system is comprised of two components: the BuildTak FlexPlate and our unique magnetic mounting base. Together, they make a system that eases the print removal process like never before.

How does it work? Simple. Attach our FlexPlate to your print bed through our unique magnetic mounting base. Developed in a variety of sizes, we have ensured that this product can be used for a multitude of printers to bring our technology to the masses. The magnetic mounting base simply snaps into your 3D printer by attaching to the metal frame of your print bed.

Once the FlexPlate and magnetic mounting base are installed in your printer begin printing away onto the top of the FlexPlate, which will come with a sheet of BuildTak installed. Once the print is finished, easily detach the FlexPlate from the magnetic mounting base and flex the plate back and forth. The prints will pop right off!

    What a Great Product! I use it on my both Prusa MK2 with different materials [PLA, ABS, Carbon, PETG, Wood} and works as it promises! Well done!

    I placed the order yesterday morning and received the package today. Quite an amazing service. The product is quite easy to install, just bear in mind that you’ll have to compensate for elevated bed height afterwards (approx 3mm) – I tried to adjust the bed with the leveling screws on my Flashforge Creator Pro, but the springs blocked the bed too soon for proper correction. I had to resign myself to use a shim to allow the bed to hit the z axis end switch sooner. Then, don’t forget your ending scripts and correcting your previous builds g-codes… Otherwise at the end of the print one line of code would send the bed too far down (using the last known maximum z height) and the motors/bed won’t like it much – I had the nasty surprise, had to shut off the printer right away. This done, you’ll have no problem printing on that surface. I kept it pristine clean (no glue, no tape, no nothing) and managed to print ABS perfectly on the first attempt (235°C for nozzle, 110°C for heat bed first layer, then 90). I was able to remove the print quite easily at the end. So, I’d say this is a really great product.

    As a happy customer for BuildTak mat, I bought the Flex plate for Ultimaker 2+
    It works well with PLA. Getting prints off is really easy.
    However with Polycarbonate, not so good. The BuildTak mat came away from the plate, stuck to the underside of the print. It seems that the mat cannot cope with the higher temperature. In addition the backing plate is coming off the glass plate, so the glue here is also not able to survive the higher bed temperature.
    I would still recommend the FlexPLate, but caution its use with Polycarbonate
