3D Print surface that "flexes"

I am printing a large amount of small parts; is there a piece I can add to my glass that when done will flex, allowing the parts to "pop" off into a box?

M2 Rev E machine?

I was going through setup again, so I was reading a Petg post

I notices it said you dd not have to calibrate with a Rev E machine?

Why not? What is different between rev e and rev d?

Thanks!
