FLEKS3D - THE BEST 3D PRINTING BUILD PLATE

$7,105

Hello Everyone, We are back with a campaign to make FLEKS3D more accessible then ever. 

As you might know, FLEKS3D is the must trusted flexible build plate. It work on any FDM 3D printer and with every filament.

Our global community of over 8000 users have really made the most of their FLEKS3D experience, trying every kind of filament available, and using almost every brand of 3D printer. The amazing prints produced using FLEKS3D makes it clear, our plate makes 3d printing easier and better.

So why FLEKS3D? No more need for fiddly blue tape! No need for sticky hairspray and no more scraping. Fleks3d plates makes printing simple and easy.

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 simply flexing the plate. It simply pops off. No more damaged prints, no more scraping and no more cut fingers. HIGHER SUCCESS RATE with textured print surface that grabs the first layer and keeps it in place. SMOOTHER WORKFLOW with interchangeable print plates. Once the print is done, just switch the plate to a new one.

 Here are just a few examples of FLEKS3D in use. Please scroll down to end of campaign to see additional example.

FLEKS3D "SIMPLE" plates are our most popular products, and is a great entry level model. Staring at $15, it simply attaches to the print-bed with clips. An added bonus is that the SIMPLE offers more printable area since there is no frame, great options for those edge-to-edge prints.

 - Frames are .5 in wide. 1 in in total. This area is not printable and will subtract from the printing area. 

- The 12 X 12 inches is 304.8x304.8mm. It is a typo in the rewards. We can't update it since rewards can't be updates after someone has pledged of it. 

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.

 ABS is as always more challenging. We had users with great success and users with non. It just takes patience.

Heated plate and self levelling feature. 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.

Lifespan 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.

our beat-up 3 years old prototype, still works.

Thank you for visiting our campaign. We would like to thank all of our supporters for giving us so much feedback on this product. We also would like to thank future supporters for believing in FLEKS3D and helping us to make 3D printing easier.

    FLEKS3D ULTIMAKER 2, 2+ and 3

    This FLEKS3D works for ULTIMAKER 2 and 2+. It also works for the new ULTIMAKER 3. Simply replace the standard glas plate with the FLEKS3D and you are good to go. You can either squeeze the clips for a tight fit. Or use blue tape on the edges. Please see picture.

    ULTIMAKER 3 - This machine has an auto-leveling feature that presses the hot end into the build bed. This will melt our product. Use the “puck” (please see our product page) for the initial setup, then turn off the auto-level for each print. You can also turn it off all together and do a manual level. They made it so easy to manual level on these machine, you almost wonder why they bother with the auto level.
