Diall Blue Tape

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a UM2 and after using this forum as a great resource i finally have something to give back.

I used to use 3M bluetape however when i went to restock in my local B&Q there was none there so i tired their own brand, "Diall", blue tape. The stuff works great, 50mmx50m is €9 and the parts adhere great when printing and are very easy to remove, no tape sticks to the bottom when printing PLA. I had a lot of trouble with the 3M being too stuck and the tape tearing upon removal.

Diall Blue Tape

I hope some others may try it out and see what they think. I see the one review on the B&Q site is from someone with a 3D printer so i am not alone.

Happy printing.

I personally use car body masking tape. Not as much of a "grain" as normal interior decorating stuff, but boy does it stick to my printing bed! Honestly worrying when a masking tape is too sticky. Probably us lot love it, but decorators are getting frustrated

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
