Heated Bed Official Kit Stretched Z

Recommended Posts

Posted · Heated Bed Official Kit Stretched Z

Its Elmers PVA that people rave about in the US i think.

Heat the bed to 60deg, brush the 50/50 mix on and let it dry, then print.

Everything sticks and comes off with a high gloss base, XT, PLA, Nylon etc.

Okay you can use the glue stick that comes with the kit but I prefer the brush on method for a cleaner finish. I use it on my UM2, UM 1's and the Printrbot Plus.


I use a 70/30 water/glue mix and it works great. Be warned I have actually damaged my glass build plate printing with XT. The prints stuck so well they pulled off pieces of glass!

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
