Part adhesion is essential to successful 3D printing, so having a surface that holds heat well and promotes material adhesion across many different types of filament is very useful. Enter BuildTak, an adhesive build surface that provides the perfect amount of texture to grip the first layer of most filaments and also allow for clean part removal after printing. BuildTak is a sheet with adhesive on the bottom to easily attach to your existing build surface.
The hotend is the component of a 3D printer that melts the filament for extrusion. A crucial part of successful 3D printing is maintaining consistent and accurate temperature.
The nozzle is the component of a 3D printer that deposes the molten filament out into the build area.
The extruder is responsible for feeding filament into the hotend and out of the nozzle. Having a strong, reliable extruder is vital to accurate, high quality 3D prints.
A clean and well adheared first layer is critical to successful 3D printing, and much of that success or failure comes down to the build plate used. From borosilicate glass to BuldTak, it's all here.
