Bulidtak flex bed

Postby Shelton » Thu Aug 16, 2018 12:07 pm

For this price range, we should get flex bed Buildtak. Like Prusa. No more issue with bed handle and fast and easy remove of prints.

Please do.

I'm interested to see how well it works with ABS and PETG if you test with it.

You can buy a similar product today: https://www.3d-easy.xyz/store/p2/Easy-Peelzy
I believe they were also a Kickstarter project. I am using Easy Peelzy on a small Monoprice Select Mini with success but haven't tried it on anything larger since there has already been enough online traffic on other forums that these non metal flex bed solutions can separate if you are printing something large and it starts to warp.

The biggest negative of the Easy Peelzy and the Ziflex is neither of them allow a bed temp of 100 C or higher so that rules out ABS and PC.

I do agree that a removable and flexible build surface would and should be a stock feature. I have the BuildTak FlexPlate system on order for the Pro2 and I expect it to work just as well as it does on my Qidi Tech.
