Magnetic bed surface

Post by Lez0 » November 14th, 2019, 6:31 am

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
Lez

I've just bought one of these to try out, its quite cheap and can be trimmed down to fit my Hictop heatbed.

Also the adhesive sticker is made by 3M which is good quality.

I just bought a magnetic build plate / spring steel sheet for my Ultimaker 2+ Goes on top of a fresh piece of glass (from Ultimaker).
