Section Marks on buildplate

Postby RiserDog » Sun Feb 11, 2018 6:44 pm

Thought I would just show these marking I etched into my bedplate. Really useful because I know exactly where to place the glue. It would be better if the plate where dk gray, would hide prints. ;)

Interesting! Did you scribe it with a glass cutter or tungsten scribe? That looks like borosilicate glass, is it?

You made me realize that it may be a good idea to spray paint the bottom of the plate. You could paint it black or dark grey, with the stripes in place. Black paint has the possibility of increasing heat transfer, as well.

The marks are on the aluminum plate under the glass. Took a metal ruler and exacto and cut them in. I use both sides of the glass so I did not do anything to it. I wish the aluminum were dk gray.
