Magnetic bed surface

Hi all
I have been using a vinyl bed surface and it works really well.
The trouble is it's hard to remove when I want to replace it, it takes ages.
I hear there are magnetic surfaces, has anyone used one, and if so does it work OK.
Thank all

Re: PLA sticking TOO much to bed.

I think I may have solved the problem of parts sticking to the bed too much, somehow.

Over 12 hours into this print and the print went for a walk. It must have happened when I left the house..
I think I was pushing it a bit too much.

Re: PLA sticking TOO much to bed.

Thanks for the advice. I'll try lowering the temp and raising the nozzle a bit more.
I'll let you know after the next print.

PLA sticking TOO much to bed.

I have reduce temp from 60 to 50. when levelling the bed I have the paper "feeler" a bit loose. But still it takes a lot to get the print off. I like all of you have had problems with prin...

Re: What is everyone doing

Sold my FT5 to a friend, his first printer. I gave him all the advice I could, but he still bought it ;-) . He is printing a Storm-trooper helmet with it, it's almost done, he's done a good job of it. Work is crazy at the moment but I still look at the new posts here. When I have more time, after re...

Sorry Paul but the almost white background on Windows hurts my eyes, it too bright.

Re: Ender 5 gone completely haywire

Hi
I don't know if it helps but I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the wire to the extruder that was faulty.
Just a thought.

Re: Parts Sticking to Blue Tape on Only 1 of 2 Identical Printers!

Another thought.
I was told that the hot end could vary by as much as 15°C from what is displayed, so you may have different temperatures across the range.

Re: Bought a used Hictop 3DP17 from a local chap...

I have used these type of bearing in other projects. The quality can vary a lot between different suppliers. You can get nice silent smooth bearings or bearings that sound and feel so rough you wouldn't want to use them for anything. It is difficult finding a good supplier, but as the price isn't ve...
