This is a pretty nice, easy-to-use Lattice Textured Glass Build Bed Plate for your 3D printer.
A 3D printer glass bed is arguably the best option when aiming for a flawless print bottom. Not only that, it’s also remarkably easy to remove prints from glass (providing your bed was clean before the print).
It’s widely accepted that no one build plate is best; what’s ideal for you largely depends on what you want to print. Glass as a bed for your 3D printer, however, gives many benefits that are worth considering.
Generally speaking, what makes glass a good option is that it’s a reliably flat, stiff, dense, and cheap material. As a print bed, it has a number of characteristics and advantages that you should keep in mind when in the market to replace your print bed which includes:
- Flatness: Print beds need to be flat throughout printing to avoid running into errors. When produced properly, glass is naturally stiff and thermally stable. Therefore, it remains flat and will ensure your bed’s leveling remains consistent. After all, the tedium of leveling and calibrating is never fun.
- Smooth finish: Designers want the bottom of their prints to be as smooth as possible, and glass guarantees such a finish. It gives a mirror-like, glossy base that can’t be achieved with most other surfaces.
- Durability: A good number of surfaces can’t stand repeated use because of the heating and contraction. Plastic or acrylic bases, for example, will eventually need a replacement because the surface will start to chip, scratch, warp, or peel. Meanwhile, glass rarely needs replacing because it hardly wears. That means you can enjoy consistent high-quality prints for a long time.
- Cost: By virtue of its durability and little need for replacement, a glass bed will save you money (and time) down the road.
- Easy removal: No one likes using force to remove a print from a print bed. Not only is there a chance to break more fragile models, you also risk hurting yourself or damaging some component of your printer when the model does finally pop off, sending hand, scraper, and print flying. Glass print beds are famous for easily releasing prints, which makes the whole printing experience that much more enjoyable.
- Easy cleanup: Beds commonly gather grease, dust, and unwanted plastic fragments that result in an uneven and unreliably adhesive print surface. This makes cleaning a necessity, and few printer beds clean as easily as a smooth sheet of glass, again thanks to its smooth, flat, and stiff surface.
- Uniform heating: Even for materials that don’t require need it, heating the print bed can greatly improve how well a model prints. Lacking thermal conductivity, glass beds typically take longer to heat up, but they also spread heat much better than other surfaces. This can greatly help when experiencing first layer issues, as you can be sure different areas will be affected similarly.
