3D Printer Users with Glass Bed
« on: January 21, 2019, 05:02:24 PM »
Hi Guys,
Anyone using a printer with glass bed that they have stuck a PEI sheet too.
I have a friend who got one of these sheets from Ebay and stuck it making sure it was
squeezed when it was glued so it didnt have any bubbles left. It was perfectly flat but when
he heated the bed to do a ABS print it all bubbled and left a terrible surface behind. I think it
was ok with PLA. Anyone experienced anything like this.
Thanks
Les

Hi LES,
I use a PEI Sheet on glass, I stuck the PEI to the glass then use Binder clips to hold the assembly to my build plate.  I use PLA and Love it.  I haven't started with e ABS Yet, and do have a roll to try but just haven't tried it above 63 Degrees.
I will say that I love the PEI Sheet.  Now I will be cautious when printing with ABS.  Thanks for the tip

Trev,
I have PEI sheet on my printer and never had a problem with sticking. Love to hear if anyone has been successful  as the temp is much higher with ABS.
