Heated bed with carbon fibre plate?

Posted · Heated bed with carbon fibre plate?

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.
