Robust Build with Room for Flexibility

This LayerLock build plate is powder coated with PEI on both sides for a robust surface that'll last twice as long. Because the plate is made of spring steel, there's enough flexibility to pop prints off with a bend, making part removal easier than ever.

  • Engineered to last thanks to its double-sided powder-coated application
  • Spend less on replacing temporary build sheets
  • Remove prints off the bed without any need for sharp removal tools

Unique & Useful First Layer Surface

The powder-coating application of this LayerLock PEI Build Plate produces a rugged texture that adds a charming and useful quality to your print.

  • Produce prints with first layers that stand out from the rest
  • Enjoy the mesmerizing texture that can also hide many small first layer flaws
  • Find utility in a bumpy texture that's useful for purposes such as reducing slippage on the first layer

What Materials are Compatible with LayerLock Powder Coated PEI Build Plate?

Compatible Material Z-Height Sensitive

* Optimal nozzle height is crucial for these materials to avoid infusing prints into the build surface.

How Do You Install and Maintain LayerLock Powder Coated PEI Build Plate?


  • Attach and align plate onto magnetic base
  • Calibrate Z-height
  • Level print bed

That's it! You're ready to print. For a more detailed walkthrough on "How to Succeed" with a powder-coated PEI plate (installing, printing, maintenance, or troubleshooting), check out our article here!


  • Do NOT print too low with PETG, RYNO, TPU, and TPE.
    • Remove prints extruded out of these materials while the bed is still heated at 60°C.
  • Remove PLA and ABS prints from the build plate AFTER the bed has cooled down.
  • Do NOT over flex the spring steel plate. Minor flexing should suffice.
  • Do NOT use a sharp scraper to remove prints off the surface.
  • Re-calibrate your z-height and re-level your bed whenever you make large changes to your print settings such as print speed, layer height, bed and nozzle temperature, etc.
