PEI Surface - which thickness?

Post by Evan » Sat Aug 26, 2017 1:13 pm

Hi All,

I am looking at replacing the kapton my M3 shipped with with a sheet of PEI. Looking at the various sizes etc. I see there are also a few thicknesses available. I was hoping to get some advice on which thickness of PEI to apply to my M3 glass bed? Or does it not really matter? I see prusa research have quite a thin PEI available, which is almost a perfect size (only just a little larger) for the M3 build platform, with adhesive applied. Would this suit, or should I got with a thicker piece? Thanks.

A lot of us on the forum are using these sheets and attaching them with 3M Tape.

I find I have to change the adhesive tape now and then but the PEI sheets last a long time.
