FLEKS3D “simple” for
Ultimaker 2, 2+ & 3
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.
This FLEKS3D works for ULTIMAKER 2 and 2+. It also works for the new ULTIMAKER 3. Simply replace the standard glas plate with the FLEKS3D and you are good to go. You can either squeeze the clips for a tight fit. Or use blue tape on the edges. Please see picture.
ULTIMAKER 3 - This machine has an auto-leveling feature that presses the hot end into the build bed. This will melt our product. Use the “puck” (please see our product page) for the initial setup, then turn off the auto-level for each print. You can also turn it off all together and do a manual level. They made it so easy to manual level on these machine, you almost wonder why they bother with the auto level.
Please review images and video displaying the FLEKS3D on an Ultimaker 2+.
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.
