3D Printer Bed: How to Choose the Right Build Plate

2022-03-24

1.  Borosilicate Glass Build Plate:

Creality 3D Printer:   CR-10/CR-10S/CR-10S4/CR-10S5

Pros: 
Borasolicate glass is rated for higher temperatures than normal sheet glass. Flat, heat resistant plate. Does not warp during long term use...
Conducts heat evenly across the build surface to ensure consistent temperature throughout the build surface.

Cons: 
The one issue with Borosilicate Glass beds is that, when removing a print from them, they might chip a bit.

 

2. 3D Printer Platform Sticker - Heated Bed Hot Bed Platform Sticker With 3M Backing

Creality 3D Printer:   : Ender-3, CR-20

3.  Magnetic:  Magnetic Plate Heated Bed Build Surface

Feature:

Reuse, easy to remove.

Separation type bending to take the model. It's more convenient.

No need the beauty of paper and scraper to assist the model.

Print not warped edge. No glue is needed.

Can be printed on cold bed.

 

4. Tempered Glass Bed 

Tempered glass is also heat resistant it does have a relatively long lifecycle with 3D printing. 
It provides consistently flat and smooth print foundations and can be used for several thousand long time without any detrimental effects to the glass or the print quality. 

1.Leveling: Use A4 paper to adjust to the platform and the nozzle till there is obvious hindrance, but to be able to pull.

2.Oily Clean: Severe oil on the surface of the platform will affect adhesion,if this happened, please heat the bed to 90℃, or put the printer aways for 8 hours, but the most direct way is to wipe a little with alcohol.

3.This product acid and alkali resistant, high temperature resistance 400℃.

4.The first layer of the product has a hardness of 0.5H, which is easier to be scratched, but the scratching does not affect the adhesion of the models.

5.This product will change color when rubbed repeatedly with alcohol, but will not affect normal use.

6.This product will enhance the viscosity and absorb oil ability of the platform after being slightly wiped with alcohol.

7.Try to avoid repeated touches on the platform by hand to prevent serious sweat from touching the platform.

8.This product is processed with a special process and will never appear in the glass, good solution to the problem of platform unevenness.

Important Information:

1.Recommend print temps

PLA – 60C

HTPLA – 60C

PETG – 70-80C

PCTG – 70-80C

ABS – 100C

 

2.Product Usage Guidelines:

PETG/PCTG/TPU– If you are not careful with your 1st layer you can risk bonding the PETG/PCTG/TPU to the PEI surface. This will damage the surface. To prevent damage to the surface apply hairspray or PVA gluestick before printing PETG/PCTG/TPU on the PEI

Part Removal– Make sure your plate is at close to room temp (under 30C) before removing parts. If you remove when hot it more likely to damage the surface
