FLEKS3D makes your 3D printer BETTER

$61,132

We launched a successful campaign a year ago and FLEKS3D is now with over 500 users in all 50 states and 37 countries. We are now back to offer additional sizes, plates for the DELTA 3D printers FLASHFORGE (and similar sized 3D printers) and the FLEKS3D "Simple". Plus we are offering our most popular sizes again for 3D Printers like MAKERBOT, ULTIMAKER and COBBLEBOT

FLEKS3D is an ADD-ON compatible with ANY desktop 3D printer (FFM). FLEKS3D makes 3D printing EASIER, with a HIGHER SUCCESS RATE and provides a SMOOTHER WORKFLOW.

EASIER by releasing the print with a single "FLEKS" of the plate. The part simply pops off. No more damaged prints, no more scraping and no more cut fingers. 

HIGHER SUCCESS RATE with a proprietary texture that grabs the first layer and keeps it in place. No more blue tape, No more hairspray.

SMOOTHER WORKFLOW with interchangeable print plates. Once the print is done, just switch the plate to a new one.

FLEKS3D "SIMPLE" is the most attainable of our products. This is a great entry level model to try us out. It simply attaches to the print-bed with clips. These are offered as a single plate starting from $15. An added bonus is that the SIMPLE offers more printable area since there is no frame, great options for those edge-to-edge prints.

Yes, yes, yes and yes. With over 500 users worldwide FLEKS3D has been tested with a wide range of filaments. Our community has tested FLEKS3D to the max. FLEKS3D just works.

 *If you do not see a size that works for your 3D printer, please contact us and let us know and maybe we can add it. 

We are excited to have received inquires about how to do multiple pledges. Kickstarter is not set up for this. This is the way. Pick the largest pledge, then add the amount of the additional pledges on top.

Example: 35$ + 15$ = 50$.

In the end of the campaign we will ask for your address, remember to remind us about your pledges then.

FLEKS3D works with heated plates up to 100°F (40°C). However, we have found that it works great without a heated plate and we recommend trying without it first. When using a heated plate FLEKS3D might bend a little. If so hold it down with clips and you are good to go. We provide a "self-leveling puck" for the users that have that feature. In the end of the campaign we will reach out to everyone to see who needs one.  

Our first prototypes still work 18 months later. So we can’t say how long the lifespan is, just that it is longer than 18 months.

FLEKS3D build plate is now in all 50 of the United States and in over 37 countries. Over 500 people around the globe have tested our product and it passed with flying colors.
