Double Check Your Leveling
Poor leveling is the number one way we see flex plates get destroyed. Either a hot nozzle is jammed into the surface or a part is printed way too close to the bed. This can cause serious damage to your Fula-Flex, even if it’s not immediately visible.
IPA Cleaning Between Prints
To keep your flex plate sticky and clean, wipe the surface with 99% IPA (isopropyl) between every print. This helps remove any dust, debris, and grease from the surface, that can cause your prints to detach while printing. While we recommend using 99% IPA, anything higher than 90% should do the trick.
Refreshing your Smooth PEI Surface
The smooth PEI can lose its adhesive properties with extensive use and will need a refresh from time to time. If you are starting to notice a loss of grip using the smooth PEI, wipe down the surface with Acetone. Be careful not to do this too often, as long-term exposure to Acetone can cause PEI to become brittle.
DO NOT use Acetone on the textured surface as it will immediately cause the surface to deteriorate. You can also use fine steel wool and lightly scuff the surface.
