Borosilicate glass plate

Postby Raess » Thu Feb 08, 2018 10:43 pm

I just got home some stuff I bought a while ago but realized that the stuff is too small. When I ordered, I assumed a 12x12 building surface and did not measure the actual plate, but quickly realized that it was wrong.

1. Two new glass plates 12x12
2. Lokbuild 12x12
3. Buildtak white 12x12 3 sheets.

Can I use this things somehow or should I just sell them? :lol:

You can use them, just use thin silicone rubber (used on computer and gaming hardware to heatsinks) and this keeps the plate from sliding or moving.

We are back at, the actual printable area is 305mm. You just need to place the glass in the front left corner of the heating plate.

See this discussion and there are some pictures, examples, and even testing viewtopic.php?f=4&t=2397&p=24377&hilit=silicone#p24377

You already bought these plates, might as well use them.
