for makerbot replicator 5th gen.
We recommend that you get to know your printer before starting to use the FLEKS3D. Each printer has its own quirks to work through. Knowing your printer prior to using our product will help you problem solve shall issues arise.
1 - Lower print-bed slightly more that 1/8". Using the included leveling glass, run the standard self-leveling procedure. Move the leveling glass with the print head as it travels during the set-up.
DO NOT USE THE FLEKS3D FOR THE SET UP.
2 - Attached frame with double-stick tape and place the FLEKS3D in the frame.
3 - Run print, after completion simply remove the FLEKS3D with the print. Gently flex the FLEKS3D to release the build. The build should come off as one piece, but if some support material remains on the board, we suggest removing it carefully with a straight razor.
FLEKS3D can be used with up to 100 Celsius (212 f). For most part FLEKS3D enables the use of lower heat. Many times no heat. We recommend to start with no heat, then slightly increase it if necessary.
self levelling "pucK"
Add one layer of blue tape to puck. This is since the puck is slightly thinner then the plates. We are working on finding a new vendor for this with more exact dimensions.
Run your 3D Printer's standard self-leveling program.
Place the glass puck under the nozzle as it travels around the bed during set-up.
Once set-up is done, pause program and place FLEKS3D on build-bed.
Some printers do this set-up for every print. This isn’t necessary. Cancel this feature if possible.
