    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

    Bought one of these for my Flying Bear Tornado, wonderful quality.
    Most expensive part must be the magnetic plate that sticks to the existing printing bed.
    Recommended for anyone with a decent printer as it is quite expensive but well worth the money

    I’m a happy customer – finally my print surface isn’t something I’m worrying about (and I can move my focus onto the rest of my printer’s shortcomings).
    I’d tried multiple “BuildTak-like” surfaces that my prints welded themselves to and required bed-damaging-spatula-hacking, and a couple of Ultrabases that seemed wonderful at first – and then completely degraded to the point of uselessness in a couple of weeks. This system is not cheap (you’ll get tax added on when you check out as well), but for the first time actually does what a product says what it will do (if it hadn’t, my printer would’ve been hurled into the bin and I’d have found a new hobby – this purchase was made by me at the end of my tether after trying every other cheaper alternative I could come up with).
    Everything (PLA/ABS) seems to stick, even delicate low-contact prints . Small stuff snaps off nicely manually, larger stuff snaps off when you flex the plate. Either way, I’ve not had to touch my spatula since I’ve started using it and a couple of weeks in it’s as good and pristine as it was on the first print.
    Obviously I wish this product was cheaper – but to me was worth it. As a bonus, I can now buy a PEI sheet/plate and swap out my print surfaces with minimal fuss, which is quite handy as I was previously a bit fearful about PETG.
