BuildTak is proud to announce the latest addition to our line of 3D printing accessories – the BuildTak FlexPlate System!  As a company dedicated to making the 3D printing experience as easy as possible, our three-part system was developed specifically to eliminate the hassle of print removal.

The system includes three components: the BuildTak FlexPlate, our unique Magnetic Mounting Base, and a standard sheet of BuildTak. Together, they comprise a system that makes the print removal process easier than ever.  Developed in the most common sizes, we’ve ensured that our product can be used with a multitude of printers to bring our technology to the masses.

How does it work? Simple. Peel back the adhesive liner to attach our unique Magnetic Mounting Base to your print bed, apply a BuildTak sheet to the FlexPlate, and magnetically attach the BuildTak-coated FlexPlate to your base.  Perform a one-time adjustment to your z-height to compensate for the added thickness of the FlexPlate System, then begin printing.  When printing is complete simply remove the FlexPlate, flex, and pop your prints 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
