I saw the new modular bed system for the Taz 6. It’s a removable glass sheet, pei one side, bare glass other side. With the heater and spring sheet separate from the glass.
What I want to know is there a way we can use this new system to make the bed flexible and removable like Prusa’s mk3 or buildtaks flexplate system. There is a DIY way to do this linked below.
I’m actually trying to get a local shop in my area to laser cut some sheet metal for me, for my Delta printer. Sent them the stl and requested a quote, no idea how much it cost to laser cut something.
But for the Taz I worry about zoffset accuracy, because the probe doesn’t touch the build surface, it probes the washers.
So the idea is to place high temperature magnets under the bed somewhere to hold another spring steel sheet with a build surface like lokbuild, buildtak, pei etc on top. Or use some sort of clips to hold the 2nd sheet to the first. Any way once done, let cool and flex to remove. No more struggling with prints stuck to plate, no more cuts to your fingers, etc.(The clam shell knife is litterly dangerous and has drawn blood). This works awesome on my mk3, wish I had something like this for my Taz 6, which I’m using less and less to be honest.
Hoping for your guys ideas and input.
