Product Details

Do you want a product that is well recommended ü and is the ideal 3D printing surfaceü?


Why is BuildTak the ideal 3D printing surface?
Frustrated with getting your 3D prints to stick? Ready to put away the blue tape, Kapton, hairspray, ABS juice, Perfboard or other solutions? We have the answer! BuildTak is a thin, durable plastic sheet that adheres to the print bed of FFF (fused filament fabrication) 3D printers. It provides an optimal printing surface for 3D objects to adhere to for the duration of a print, while allowing for a clean, easy removal of completed builds.


Key Benefits:
Ease of use

Creates an optimal bond between the 3D printed object and the build surface for the duration of the print while preventing curling or object coming loose. When builds are complete, the 3D printed object can be cleanly removed with minimal prying or scraping.

BuildTak sheets are more rigid and durable and last longer than traditional methods like Kapton. This reduces time in continually applying print surfaces and extends protection to the original print bed surface.

Ease of installation
Easy installation to the bare print bed and clean removal without adhesive residue usually with less air bubbles.  There is no need for pre-treatments such as hairspray or acetone slurry.

Works with MANY filaments
Works with ABS, PLA, HIPS, PET+, Brick, Wood & Flexible (TPE) filaments; additionally we have had success with getting nylon and t-glase (PETT) to adhere when used with a thin layer of washable glue stick on the BuildTak surface.  This means you can use different filament materials without the need to change the printing surface.

Heat Resistant
Patent-pending heat resistant composition, developed to withstand the typical temperatures used on heated print beds (i.e. 110-125C). With safety in mind, BuildTak is composed of raw materials that are UL flame rated.

Hints and Tips
For further information we recommend:
Introduction video: 

1. Wipe down your bare build platform making sure it is clean and free of debris.
2. Trim the BuildTak sheet to match the size of your build plate (if not already).
3. Remove the white adhesive liner and apply the BuildTak sheet to the bare build plate. Start from one edge of the build plate and work your way to the other edge, smoothing the BuildTak sheet with a credit card or decal applicator.
4. Re-level your surface and ensure that the nozzle height is properly set (usually between .10 – .25mm).

To ensure the longevity of the BuildTak sheet, use a spatula or putty knife with smooth/rounded corners. Avoid using solvents, such as acetone, to clean it.
Typically with other build surface solutions, such as blue masking tape or polyimide, a heavy deposit or “smoosh” is used on the first print layers. With BuildTak this is not needed.
