substitute for blue tape

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

just to let you know, I saw some threads about the use of substitute for the blue tape. I`m using the painting tape over the blue tape and I`m getting really good results. The pieces are getting a good grip on it and also I can get it loose very easily. Here is a picture of what I`m using.

Also it can be found in any of these painting store, it is larger than blue tape and also cheaper.

Hi illuminarti

till now it is working nicely for me. Credits to my wife that asked why I couldn`t try this one.

I`m a new user, but I was changing constantly the blue tape. After changing to this one I`m changing very few times and also removing the pieces much better.

Thanks for you reply.

    • "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.
