Please note this print bed has a thickness of 0.156" (3.96 mm), allowing it to replace the Glass Print Bed for Ultimaker. For a thin version with an adhesive backing to attach to a print bed/build plate, click here.
Take your 3D printing to the next level with LayerLock Garolite Print Bed! Garolite takes the guesswork out of printing with nylon-based filaments such as NylonX and NylonG so your engineering grade prints come out warp-free. Also compatible with common filaments like PLA, PETG, and TPU, this thick linen-based phenolic sheet provides strong adhesion between a print object and its build surface. Invest in this extremely durable print bed once and receive a reliable build surface that will last a lifetime.
Garolite sheets are the ideal choice when printing with nylon-based 3D printing material. It is also compatible with most common 3D printing materials. Nylon does not stick to most common bed surfaces. LayerLock Garolite Print Bed adheres strongly and allows for a high success rate when printing with Nylon, NylonX, and NylonG prints. Plan on printing with nylon filaments? This print bed is for you.

Successfully printing NylonX has never been easier than with garolite.
With proper care, LayerLock Garolite Print Bed will last for thousands of prints. It is an easy one-time investment for a lifetime of successful 3D prints. Parts not sticking as well anymore? See some wear or damage? Lightly sand the top surface with 220g sandpaper (included) and LayerLock Garolite Print Bed will adhere print objects to its build surface just as strongly, if not stronger, than it did before. These thick, durable garolite sheets with an adhesive backing will last a lifetime, making it an ideal build surface that hobbyists and professionals can rely on.
See successful print results over and over when you use a garolite build surface.
Expand your roster of reliable build surfaces with LayerLock Garolite Print Bed! PEI and glass are great build surfaces, but your filament choices are limited. Replacing bed sheets can also get expensive. Not only does garolite allow you to print nylon filaments, but it will also last virtually forever. This thick linen-based, phenolic material provides effective bed adhesion, creating a strong bond between the printed object and the build surface. How easy is it to integrate this print bed to your Ultimaker set up? Simply clip the 0.156" thick garolite sheet onto a solid build plate that generates heat. Now your build surface is ready to provide strong bed adhesion! Garolite is our only choice when printing with NylonX and NylonG, but it's also versatile and adheres well to many standard filaments.
Add garolite to your roster of reliable, durable build surfaces that successfully prints nylon filaments and more.
Installation is extremely simple and easy for the Ultimaker S5. Clean your build plate with isopropyl alcohol, then clean both sides of the LayerLock Garolite Print Bed (also with isopropyl alcohol). Place the garolite onto your printer's solid build plate that generates heat and use the clips to hold it firmly onto the build plate. Once attached to the build plate, re-level your surface based on your specific printer/setup with the newly installed LayerLock Garolite Print Bed and ensure the nozzle height is properly set. Thanks to the garolite sheet's large thickness, it replaces your Glass Print Bed so adjustments to your z-height will be extremely minor. That's it! You're ready to print.
May require PVA glue
Nylon Filament requires the 3D printer to have an all-metal hotend.
Abrasive materials require the 3D printer to have a High Performance Nozzle such as a Hardened Steel Nozzle or Ruby Nozzle.
Compatible with the Ultimaker S5
Wipe the print surface before and after a print with isopropyl alcohol to maintain a clean surface. Clean off PVA glue with warm water. If the print surface becomes damaged, it is recommended that users lightly sand with 220 grit sandpaper and a sanding block. It is best to sand the entire plate evenly to avoid creating low spots. Avoid inhaling dust particles from sanding by wearing a respirator mask.
