I thought I just share my latest experiment with you
As I ran out of Kapton Tape I tried laserprinter transparent color film cut to the size of the platform with bed temp 70°C extruder 215°C.
The film has been cleaned after attaching with 91% isoprophyl alcohol.
For a first test the sheet was not glued to the glas platform.
Could be done with water, glue mixture, pure water (probably) or hairspray I guess.
The test Object was a 10x10x10 cube on a Makergear M2 Rev E.
Filament: Makergear PLA
Setup: Here are the results:
Glas platform can stay in place after print and film is detached.
The film can be bended while the cube stays in place (r~1cm): After bending further than, that the cube came off easily: Bottom surface quality was ok (smoother than my Kapton prints): View from below after bending: According to some posts online the max temp for monochrome laser film is 190°C, this is why I used color film (220°C).
Quite interesting from my perspective is:
- Builds can be easily taken off the printer
- Print sticks very well
- Possibly the ability to bend the surface afterwards can be used somehow to e.g. print on film and attach to car glas or windows.
Have a great weekend
