Hard to remove large parts

Post by Pacificimc »

Hello Felix People

Q, Anyone try using a removable top surface like a thin piece of aluminum or stainless steel to remove larger parts that bound to the table with all there surface area ?

I’m going to start with a thin piece of aluminum with blue tap that will be clamped to the heated table.

You Ideas ? Thanks Bob

I use removable glass plates. You can use a sharp fillet knive and pry it off. Try not to damage the film

Hello satoer,

Thank you for your great Ideas and support...You designs are very creative and I would like to add some new designs of my own for the Felix printer.

Do you have any recommendations when posting files and photos for this Felix Forum ?

Thanks Bob

I too uses glass plate from a photo frame to print on, and yes, have broken a couple of them when it sticks a little to well, but I still find the glass plate the best to print on and remove parts from. also the finish on the bottom is brilliant.

A common solution is to add 'dog ears' to the corners of your part.

Me, I usually just flex the heatbed a bit, until the part separates. However, that is not an optimal solution.
