Power Off & Unplug your Printer
- Ensure that the printer is powered off and unplugged from the electrical outlet.
- Allow the printer to cool down if it was in use recently.
Remove any existing removable build surfaces
- Carefully remove any existing removable build surfaces, such as glass, BuildTak, or other printing surfaces, from your 3D printer's build platform.
- Consult your printer's user manual for specific instructions on removing these surfaces, if necessary.
Clean the printer's build platform
- Clean the printer's build platform with isopropyl alcohol or a similar cleaning solution, using a lint-free cloth or paper towel.
Align and attach the magnetic base
- Remove any protective film from the magnetic base of the Fula-Flex 3.0 system.
- Carefully align the magnetic base with the printer's build platform, making sure the edges are flush and even.
- Gradually press down on the magnetic base, starting from one end and moving toward the other, to ensure a secure bond and eliminate air bubbles.
- If your printer already has a magnet base, you can opt to skip replacing it with the Fulament magnet. However, OEM magnets tend to be weaker and have lower temperature resistance.
Clean the steel sheet
- Clean the steel sheet with isopropyl alcohol or a similar cleaning solution, using a lint-free cloth or paper towel.
- Remove any protective film from the sheet.
Align and attach the steel sheet
- Place the steel sheet onto the magnetic base, aligning the edges flush with the base.
- The magnetic attraction will hold the sheet in place. Ensure it is properly seated and secure.
Level the printer's build platform
- If your printer requires manual leveling, follow the manufacturer's instructions to ensure a level build platform with the Fula-Flex 3.0 system installed.
Start a test print
- Power on the printer and load your desired filament.
- Start a test print to verify the adhesion and function of the Fula-Flex 3.0 system.
- Observe the first few layers to ensure proper adhesion and make any necessary adjustments.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed the Fula-Flex 3.0 flex plate system onto your 3D printer. Enjoy easier print removal and improved print adhesion. Remember to clean the steel sheet with isopropyl alcohol or a similar cleaning solution between prints for optimal performance.
