One of 3D printer users’ greatest challenges is warping. Whether it’s due to poor bed adhesion, moisture-filled filament, unstable environment temperature, or some combination of all three, every user has had their parts lift during the printing process. Nylon and nylon-based filament, for example, are materials notoriously known for their susceptibility to warping during printing due to nylon having lack of rigidity, relatively high shrink rate, and high hygroscopicity (absorbing water from the air).
We have a solution for that. Introducing our LayerLock Garolite Build Surfaces—your one stop solution to achieving strong bed adhesion for advanced-material printing. You'll achieve better bed adhesion that is designed for nylon and nylon-based filaments such as NylonX and NylonG, as well as standard filaments such as PLA, PETG, TPU, and more!
Installation of LayerLock Garolite Build Surfaces are fairly easy, but also critical for successful 3D printing. Check out the steps below on how to properly install this garolite sheet onto your printer.

Once you’ve determined which of the 3 examples above matches how your printer is currently extruding filament, refer to the following:
That’s it for installation! Your new build surface is attached, everything is properly calibrated and you’re now ready to start successfully printing.
