I have an Ultimaker 2+ and would like to print a logo over an acrylic sheet (glued to the machine plate) or over an aluminum plate or even over a basic surface previously printed in PLA.

If a level the machine to print to this this new surface will the print work correctly? 

 

thanks

Celso

Looks good, so did you just replace the glass bed with a sheet of acrylic? Did you heat it and did it stick ok?

Hi Ishy

 

I taped the sides of the acrylic sheet over the glass and resetted the printing to this new height. I used 80º C to help the adhesion of the PLA over the acrylic.
