Wham Bam Bed Systems for the Ultimaker 3D Printers

A few months back I shared my experience using Wham Bam Bed Systems on my Ultimaker 2+  


I removed the glass bad and adhered the magnetic sheet and them Wham Bam spring steel bed with PEX coating.

While it did work well, I found two issues and I shared them with WB.  

First was the removal of the glass bed made leveling a bit complicated, since you use up a lot of the spring travel in the bed to get level.  It works but you could wind up with a rather springy bed.  

Second was the spring steel bed has tabs that covered the bed clips, so the clips had to go.


I suggested to WB that they make cutouts in the magnet and spring steel to account for the clips.  They sent me a prototype magnetic sheet and bed for my 2+ and the S5 since I have several of those at work.


The result is fantastic.  I bought a new glass bed from Fabrc8 and used that for my Wham Bam magnet.  They advise waiting 48 hours for the 3M adhesive to cure.

2 days later, I started bed leveling and printing on it.  It really works great!  On my S5's at work, we've had an a PETG print take a chunk of glass out of a bed.  We have done a variety of materials on the surface and we're very happy with the WB product  


I wipe it down before each print with IPA and every few prints, as they advise, I scuff it up with the included steel wool.


Here's my review video below...check it out!
