I ordered this to try it out and see what it was like. The glass bed shipped with the Tycoon worked well for me and I had no complaints.
The spring steel works just as great as the glass bed to keep your prints attached. The biggest advantage to the PEI, you can pull the spring steel off the printer, wave it around for 10 seconds and remove the part. Slide the pei sheet back onto the printer and start printing again, before the bed cools down all the way. So if you're looking to print one after the other, you will save a bit of time.
I had alot of issues with the stock glass plate so i ordered this one. Turns out that after a while I figured out that my issues with the glass plate were solved with alcohol cleaning. SO if youre reading this because youre having adhesion issues, buy a bottle of alcohol and everything will be amazing, no glue stick necessary. That said, I have no regrets about buy this PEI plate it is also an amazing plate and I highly recommend it. It sticks better than the stock plate, it looks nicer, it doesnt have those annoying and ugly clips, its flexible so you dont need to us a scraper to get your prints off. All in all this was money very well spent. Great plate. Im in canada and it took 3 weeks to be delivered. Ordered January 18th, delivered to my door Febuary 8th just so youre aware of the timing. Shipped from China for me. Well packaged, no extra duties or anything like that. Go buy it! #clipless
After a few prints i‘m really happy with the new printplate. The Print hold very good and After cooling the plate the print slip lightly from it. Top Part
Works great and well worth the money to upgrade.
1.No Deformation at 200℃
Made of premium material, the original PEI powder coating with heat resistance, the hardened steel spring plate can accept 200℃, but no deformation.
2.Strong Magnetic Force and Adhesion
Composite magnetic material without demagnetization is easy to hang and pick up. Gold frosted PEI printing plate + Flexible Magnet platform sticker. 2 in 1 kit make the PEI print bed with stronger adhesion, easy to use and replace.
3.Flame Retarsant and Heat Reaistant
PC belongs to the Flexible magnet, with flame-retardant, wear-resistant, oxidation-resistant, low forming shrinkage, and heat resistance without demagnetization.
4.Frosted Printing Surface, Showing Better Printing Effect
Different From the normal smooth PEI plate, sprayed with PEI material, it has a concave-convex effect, the best adhesion, and a longer lifespan.
5.No Model Warp Anymore
There is a good combination between hot-melt material and printing layer, which reduces the deformation caused by shrinkage and avoids warping.
6.Better Print with Failments Like PETG/ ABS..
The PEI gold frosted surface can bond various 3d print filaments, especially PETG and ABS, no warp anymore with a better adhesion, long-term resistance to 130℃ high temperature.
