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 the bed to slightly more than ⅛”, test fit the build plate on surface.
Attach the RapidFrame to the print bed with double side tape
(If using a heated bed of self leveling plate, please note sections below)
2 -Secure plate with the provided FLEKS3D clips or blue tape. Ensure that the printer head can travel freely and not bounce into clips.
3 - Adjust and level build plate with the stand procedure for your printer.
DO NOT LET THE HOT PRINTHEAD MAKE DIRECT CONTACT WITH THE PLATE
4 - 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.

heated beds

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.
