Broken Glass Bed

Postby Brian » Wed Mar 30, 2016 4:16 pm

My glass broke the first day I had my N2. :( The Buildtak held it together and so I ordered a new one thinking that it would come like the original with the Buildtak affixed to the proper size glass. So I received just the Buildtak, and now need to know what kind of glass do I need to use for this. Can I use regular window glass or does it need to be something special????

Can someone answer this for me? :roll:
Thanks, Brian

For extra build plates I use ordinary window glass sprayed with extra super hold aquanet. I got it custom cut at 13x13 inch for about $5.

I got 2 cut at my local Ace HW. 13.75"x13.75", plain old plate glass. One for PVA, one for Aquanet super extra hold unscented. I'll probably get a couple more made for other materials. At this size ya gotta be extra careful. I'm thinking of covering the underside of each with tape just in case.

Borosilicate glass is recommended and you can order that from us.
If you decide to go for regular glass, please make sure it can stand the bed temperature you set.
