Posted · S5 magnetic build plate

When UM dropped the aluminum build plate, which to be honest i didn't really think brought much value to the machine as flexible plates with low cost surface replacements are now preferred for Pet and other advanced materials, I had this prototype made up to test if this is a valid solution.

so far it's working perfectly and i'm very please with the outcome.

Is there any interest in a group buy? as a one off part it was quite expensive.

Nice, i am in in interested, if, and only if, the total concept of the UM5 stays intact, the automatic bed levelling with the glass plate is so perfect, that i can not mis this anymore. My UM3 feels like a old machine without this feature.

Six jobs done since the first post Friday. No issues with auto leveling.

This is not soft like some of the flex magnet solutions, the steel plate is held firmly against borofloat glass and does not move during leveling.

Ill shoot a video while leveling on the next reset.
