Adhesion sheet

Using an adhesion sheet is one of the most effective methods of making your 3D print adhere to the build plate and get consistent high-quality results. Learn how to apply it correctly, prevent air bubbles and ensure a smooth, flat surface.

  • Remove the glass plate from the printer by opening the two glass retainer clips at the front of the build plate and gently slide the glass plate out of the printer.
  • For the best results, first wet the glass plate with water and a small amount of (dishwashing) soap. Make sure to have the warning sticker on the glass plate upwards.

     Note: Printing on the glass plate side not indicated by the warning sticker may lead to bed adhesion problems.

  • Remove both parts of the back liner from the sheet.
  • Slowly apply the sheet to the glass plate. Start in the middle and then lower the sheet onto the rest of the glass plate.

  • To reduce the number of air bubbles under the adhesion sheet, we advise you to sweep the water outwards from underneath the sheet starting in the center. You can do this with your hands or a with a flexible plastic card, but be careful not to tear the sheet.

     

    Note: Any air bubbles that remain under the sheet can distort the first printed layer. If the bubbles can’t be removed, consider popping them with a needle.

    Removing air bubbles
 
  • Place the glass plate upside down on a flat surface and cut off the excess of the adhesion sheet with a sharp knife.
  • Once the sheet is applied and bubble free, place the glass plate back in the printer and secure with the glass retainer clips. Heat up the build plate to 100 ºC so the water can evaporate.
