Survey on Beds sizes for build plates
September 13, 2017 06:46AM
My webside currently sells a range of different build plates in a small range of sizes 6, 8, 12 and 17 inch square for AndOrNot build plate, PEI and Lokbuild.

I am trying to determine what people want in build plate sizes as there maybe cost savings for the end user if i say offer 15 inch square rather than having to pay for a 17 inch build plate. The size changes for Lokbuild are out of my control as i am a reseller for Lokbuild, but AndOrNot and PEI build plate can be cut whatever size is more economical for the users.

Please reply to this thread and state the size of bed require and from the responses, i will produce a matrix of sizes and costs to better meet the market demand.

My home printer, as well as the one I use at work, are both pretty close to 12 inch square.

What do you define as "build plate"?

Bed ---- the flat surface required for good print?

Glass, Aluminum, other

Heated

How is your build sheet held to/down to bed?

my size 300mm x 300mm glass heated
I print directly on glass

My build plate is stuck down with 3m double side tape. If you only print on glass then this thread does not apply, although in the future you may want a PEI or our own build plate.

Andornot, please stop reposting your "survey" in every subforums, it's spam. I'm leaving just this one topic.


Most of my technical comments should be correct, but is THIS one ?
Anyway, as a rule of thumb, always double check what people write.
