Heated bed with carbon fibre plate?

Recommended Posts

Just received a 200x200x3 mm carbon fiber print plate :smile:

after 2 prints I'm pretty happy with it, the second print was a part that even with brim had the tendency to warp. Now I printed it without brim and it printed without any warping. Need to do some more testing over the next few days (like use the same material as when I got the warping) but initial warp test went well.

If there are suggestions of difficult objects that have a high warping factor I would love to hear and test those.

So far the only draw back I found was that the 200x200 form factor was too small for the automatic 3 point levelling procedure of my UM2. But the plate is as rigid as the glass plate so I did the levelling with the place loose and sliding it to the places where the procedure wanted to level and tapped it with heat resistance tape to the platform.

    • "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.
