Introduction

Learn how to properly install your Fula-Flex 2.0!

  1. The first step is to select a surface to apply the magnet to. If your printer comes with a glass or aluminum build plate, you can stick the magnet right on top of either surface.

    • If your printer has a top plastic build surface, please remove it before installation.

    • The included magnet is one-time use. So pick wisely :)

  2. After selecting your surface, it is very important to ensure it is clean of any dust, grease, or debris before installing.

    • Thoroughly wipe down your surface using IPA and a microber cloth.

  3. The magnet is one-time use. So take your time with this step to ensure that there are no mistakes. We recommend peeling back the top left corner of the magnet and aligning it with the top left corner of your build plate.

    • We recommend peeling back the top left corner of the magnet and aligning it with the top left corner of your build plate.

    • Once your corner is aligned, lift the magnet up from the opposite corner, and start pulling back on the remaining adhesive backing.

    • Slowly apply and smooth the magnet down with your hand until it is fully attached.

    • Take your time with this step making sure no air bubbles form under the magnet

  4. Once applied, use a credit card or ID to try and remove any bubbles.

    • If there are large air bubbles that you can not force out with a card, use a pin to pop them. Getting the pin to penetrate through the magnet will take some force, but the bubble should easily deflate after

  5. Not all Fula-Flex 2.0 plates have a protective layer. We sometimes pull it off during quality control to check for defects.

    • Grab your Fula-Flex 2.0 plate and peel the protective plastic off of the Smooth PEI.

    • An easy indication of whether your Fula-Flex 2.0 has a protective layer is the finish of the plate. If the plate is glossy, then the protective plastic is present. If matte, then you can skip this step as this is the bare PEI.

    • Glossy Protective Layer

    • Matte PEI Surface

  6. Through hundreds of thousands of printing hours, our team has been able to dial in settings very well. Follow these slicer changes for optimal adhesion. Change your slicer settings to the following: First Layer height: 0.30mm                       First Layer Width: 125%,                                                      PLA Bed Temperature: 70°,                    PETG Bed Temperature: 90° All available slicers will have these as editable settings.

  7. Do not forget to level before printing. Failure to level will cause the hot nozzle to jam into the new Fula-Flex plate and damage the PEI coating
