The polyetherimide sheet comes with 3M 468MP adhesive already laminated to the PEI. Apply the PEI with slight strain and at an angle to forestall and reduce air bubbles. As soon as utilized set the print mattress to 60C and apply strain evenly throughout the PEI in a sweeping style to firmly set the adhesive. Please use a towel to keep away from getting burned. Degree the mattress and set the peak of the nozzle earlier than printing.
If PEI is put in to the highest floor of a mattress sandwich (a construct plate with a number of layers), it is strongly recommended to put in PEI on high of borosilicate glass.
Warmth the mattress to the specified temperatures for printing (60 C for PLA and 100 C for ABS). Relying on how thick your mattress sandwich is, your set temperature might not be your floor PEI temperature.
When the print is accomplished, let the mattress cool, and the half will probably be simple to launch from the PEI floor. Components are simpler to take away if launched earlier than the mattress turns into fully chilly.
Leveling the mattress could be very, crucial when utilizing PEI. You need the primary layer to be shut sufficient to be squished just a little. PETG is an exception and would not like squished layers, through which case a Z hole must be used.
Clear in between prints with isopropyl alcohol. Acetone can be utilized as an alternative of isopropyl alcohol, however the mattress have to be chilly if acetone is used. Optionally, gentle sanding with 600-1000 grit sand paper may be performed after plenty of printing to offer the PEI sheet extra life.
Creality Ender three / Creality CR 20 / and extra!
The Creality Ender three and the CR 20 have construct volumes of 220 x 220mm with a plate measurement of 235 x 235mm.
235mm x 235mm (9.25 x 9.25 inches)
PEI thickness: zero.56mm (zero.022 inches)
3M 468MP adhesive thickness: zero.13mm (zero.005 inches)
Made within the USA – Ultem 1000 PEI sheet installs shortly by way of the laminated adhesive on high of present flat construct platforms (e.g. borosilicate glass)
Bubble free software – The 3M 468MP adhesive is already preapplied to the PEI; merely peel again the tape liner for fast adhesion to the mattress
Construct Floor – PEI is the proper no prep construct floor which is endlessly reusable for a number of prints; clear with isopropypl alcohol between prints (or with acetone on a COLD mattress)
ABS and PLA filaments (together with many different supplies) print instantly on to PEI floor with out the necessity for added adhesives, tapes, or slurry
Dimensions: 235 x 235mm / PEI thickness: zero.56mm (zero.022 inches) / Laminated 3M 468MP adhesive thickness: zero.13mm (zero.005 inches) / Matches the Creality Ender three or Creality CR 20 completely!
