Add3D - Build platform of 8 mm hardened glass for MakerBot Replicator 2
This build plate is customized to fit the MakerBot Replicator 2 3D printer. It is made of 8 mm thick, durable hardened glass, which provides a very stable and flat surface for better 3D printing.
The symmetric plate is reversible allowing you to 3D print on two different surfaces. The surface on one side of the build plate is smooth and shiny which is suitable for use with blue painter's tape. The opposite side's surface is rough (sandblasted) which is suitable for 3D prints on diluted wood glue. We recommend diluting white glue in water and brushing it on the sandblasted surface prior to 3D printing with PLA plastic filament.
The build plate measures 285 x 172 x 8 mm and has been made to fit the MakerBot Replicator 2. It is meant to be a replacement for the original acrylic plate. Note that when you first use this glass build plate you will need to re-adjust the levelling via the LCD display menu option Utilities > Level Build Plate.
We recommend a straight thin palette knife for removal of 3D prints from this build plate.
