Description

PrintBite – The only 3D Printing Surface you will ever need! PrintBite offers great value whilst delivering superior performance!

The PrintBite surface is a premium 3D Printing Surface that offers the best value and perfomance available today in a 3D Printing Surface due to its strong adhesion and self releasing features. You can throw away your gluestick and other bed surface preparation materials as they are no longer needed. Printing onto PrintBite is as easy as pressing “print”. Once your print has completed and the bed has cooled the parts will self release allowing you to remove them by simply picking them up. No more forcing parts off the buildplate or using scrapers. No risk of injury when removing parts, nor risk of damage to even the most delicate prints.

Using PrintBite will change your 3d printing process for the better. No need to squash filament into the bed, no need to use a brim. Achieve clean prints with a super smooth blemish free bottom surface.

PrintBite is also extremely durable and when used with care will last as long as the printer itself. No need to replace it after a number of prints. So long as you dont touch the surface with your fingers (or let the cat sleep on it) you wont have to clean the surface either.

To clean the surface just use a very small amount of a Windex type window cleaner, Acetone or kitchen surface cleaner/soap solution with a disposable kitchen towel. No need to use harsh chemicals.

    5 out of 5 Great Product!

    I’m extremely impressed ith PrintBite. It it works exactly as advertised. When the print bed cools your print literally just lets go of the surface completely. No muss, no fuss, no more blue tape, no more glue stick. A quick spritz with Windex and you’re ready to rock and roll again. I had an adhesion problem with my first print but when I reviewed the instructions and cleaned the bed it worked perfectly.

    5 out of 5 Best print surface

    (verified owner)

    I just recently installed my Printbite surface, after letting it sit around for 2 weeks. I honestly don’t know what I was thinking… every print I made in the last 2 weeks could have been better (or at least easier). I went from printing on Blue painters on an aluminum hotbed, then tried some Polymide tape (which was a bit better)… then I finally installed a sheet of PEI I had laying around for almost 2 months. I couldn’t believe the difference the PEI made… there was no comparison between it and the painters and Polymide tapes. Now, I received my Printbite just a week or two after installing the PEI… and the PEI was going so well, and seeing how it sat around for 2 months and had only been used for a week or two, I felt like it was wrong to just move on to the Printbite… even though I was quite anxious to do so. About two weeks later, after melting the shape of a first layer of a print into my PEI, I decided it was time to go with the Printbite. Ironically, one of my major issues with the PEI, was getting things off of it after they were done printing… also, another issue I didn’t realize I had (well, I knew I had the issue, I just thought there was no way around it)… I was still having a decent amount of trouble getting consistently good first layers (and as we all know, with the first layer being right your 75% in the clear… with the exception of certain complex model).

    So I’ve only been using the Printbite for a couple of weeks, but I couldn’t be happier. If this stuff is as durable as they claim (and I have seen nothing to contradict that), I honestly couldn’t be happier with a print surface. My first layers are going down cleaner than ever on the first try, and my prints stick extremely well while printing… but come right off once the bed cools down… truly amazing.

    One thing worth mentioning, so far I have only printed PLA…. but I will soon be printing some PETG, Nylon, among some other filaments…. hoping they go as well as the PLA has been. I am also in the process of building a new 3d printer (my i3 clone was great for the price and a good starting point, but it’s time to move on)… it goes without saying, I will be ordering another sheet of Printbite in the very near future.

    5 out of 5 Very good support for printing

    (verified owner)

    Made really good. Excellent adhesion characteristics with different materials including ABS and rubber. Great for PLA. Only when the plate has cooled the piece slips away alone without any resistance … it seems magical, indeed it is magically amazing. Well-described laying instructions. Great relationship with the seller fast and very helpful. Thanks for your experience I found an excellent substitute for various lacquers / tape / tape.

Ottimo rapporto con il venditore veloce e molto disponibile. Grazie per la tua esperienza ho trovato un ottimo sostituto a varie lacche / colle / nastro.

    5 out of 5 Currently the best available print surface.

    (verified owner)

    This stuff is great! I had seen the videos of prints releasing from it, but actually using it is something else. I could literally blow the prints off the bed once it cools. And PETG is just magic with it. With the included BuildTak(ish) material on my Maker Select Plus, PETG would rip it shreds every time coming off. With PrintBite, I just pick it up. It’s pretty amazing. The only thing I still have any trouble with is TPU. It adheres great, but it doesn’t release like other materials. It’s more like PLA on BuildTak. You have to give it a little help, but it still comes up better than it would otherwise. I’ll be buying a second printer soon and PrintBite will definitely be ordered at the same time.

    5 out of 5 My tests proved the greatness of PrintBite

    (verified owner)

    I had seen PrintBite mentioned a few places, so after looking at a few videos too I thought I would try it out myself.
    I installed it on a borosilicate glass plate (had to trim it a little bit, my bad that I didn’t get the guys at Flex3Drive to do it for me), the application went smoothly and then I went through the heat cycling.
    Did a quick test print with PLA (small contact area, but larger area on the model further up). Worked perfectly.
    Then I did a much larger test, 21 models covering almost all of the bed. Again the PrintBite worked perfectly!
    Very happy with my purchase. Will try ABS and PETG soon too.
    I’ve attached a video showing my tests.

    I got this surface hoping it will be resistant to nozzle crashes, it isn’t.
    So I kind of have a ghost of my first print on all my other prints. Other than that one error on my part a truly magic surface.

    Question

    So i’m really curious about buying PrintBite. I have inductive proximity sensor for z axis and i want it to be active. I wonder, must i use some kind of backing as you suggest in your documents? Or is it possible to directly attach it to the heat bed? Can you recommend using thin sheet of aluminum? Thanks

    • j_perkes

      Admin

      PrintBite is not detected or sensed by inductive sensors. We reccomend applying PrintBite to mirror glass as this tends to be consistently flat irrespective of supplier. If you use an aluminium heat spreader this can be detected underneath. Otherwise you can apply PrintBite directly to aluminium tooling plate or a good quality aluminium heatbed. One must however ensure the heatbed remains flat when heated.

    5 out of 5 Great Surface for Heated Beds

    (verified owner)

    Having used a number of materials on my printed from painters tape to ABS slurry, this print surface has amazed me by how simple it is. Using a heated bed it is simple to get anything to stick to this surface – and it sticks solid meaning far less warping. The amazing thing is then by letting the printed cool down you can literally just pick the print off the surface. No chisels, no scrapers, just lift it off. On first view these may look expensive, but once you use them you would happily pay that amount.

    5 out of 5 Best bed surface material ever

    (verified owner)

    This is literally some of the best bed surface material I have ever used, no more messing with abs juice, kapton tapes, painters tapes, hair spray, or pei. Ive tried all of them and nothing has compared to PrintBite. I have been using the stuff now for over a year and this stuff just doesnt seem to degrade at all either. My one sheet has even been pushed up to 140c and had peek printed onto it at 420c and it left no noticeable damage and other plastics continue to adhere just as they always have.

    5 out of 5 This product really works.....

    (verified owner)

    I am incredibly impressed with the quality of the product. I was using painters tape (for PLA) and inevitably if I made a “delicate” piece it would break in the removal process. Now if just pops off the surface. Coupled with some great advice from Jason for improving the quality of the first layer I am now much happier with my printer than I was before. Whilst it might appear a tad expensive it quickly proves its value in reduced frustration and reduced waste through breakage in the removal process.

    5 out of 5 Magic ! But .....

    (verified owner)

    There’s absolutly no doubt this is the answer for all who’ve been though the motions of using painters’ tape, slurry, glue sticks, hair spray and whatever. I’ve used them all, nothing comes close to Print Bite’s “no hassle, just works” approach. Even stuff like normal ABS and pretty high infill prints with very large footprints, a recipe for warp disasters ? Printbite can do it, without any help. Just allow the printbed to reach a high temperature (I had to push to 120°) and print the first couple of layers at a slightly lower speed and temp and I get perfect results at each run.

    I have a couple of very large delta printers, build spaces of 300mm diameter and more, and even with perfectly leveled beds (not that hard to do on Delta machines as the bed is stationnary) and fully callibrated Delta settings, huge footprint jobs using ABS would still warp somewhat in spite of all the tricks and procautions I threw at it.

    I’m now on my 8th huge 200+ hours print job, and I get fully flat first layers,without warp or whatever.

    There’s just one “but”. Having several big printers, I would like to upgrade them all with this stuff but in all honesty, it’s not really cheap stuff and ordering this for all machines would be a serious investment. Some kind of discount for multiple orders would certainly cause me to upgrade every machine at my disposal to PrintBite surfaces.

    5 out of 5 PrintBite is the answer to 3D printing

    (verified owner)

    I love my sheet of PrintBite. Maybe almost as much as I love printing. It changes everything!

    I am a bit impatient when it comes to prints finishing, and allowing the bed to cool entirely, but it’s worth it! The print will literally fall off after the bed has cooled, you could move it with one finger – even larger prints with a lot of material touching the heated bed. An added bonus: the texture from the heated bed side (that is in contact with the PrintBite) is very smooth.

    I will definitely be purchasing more once this one starts going out – it’s worth shipping it to the States.

      Yea waiting for cooldown can be a pain, but if you consider hours wasted on a failed print, that extra couple of minutes is worth it for the finish you can get.

    5 out of 5 Worth Every Penny

    (verified owner)

    This is my 4th order of print bite, I’ve got two printers, One delta, and one H-bot and gave two other bites to two friends of mine who also have printers. This product does exactly what it says, it’s stiffer than what I had thought it would be and very durable.
    I’ve gone 30 prints in the same area before I had to even think about cleaning it. Just make sure you do follow the enclosed instructions and you won’t be sorry. Very easy to use and parts release with little or no work. The only time I’ve had to print a brim is on tall narrow prints just to simply give it stability if it’s top heavy. but other than that. Very nice.

      Yes Justin, so long as the instructions are followed and the surface is cared for properly it will last and last. You can also consider using a detached brim – a multi line skirt with a distance to object set around 0.5 – 1mm. This will insulate the bed and keep heat in, and deflect and print cooling fan breeze, but will not be attached to the part when the print is finished.

    5 out of 5 Very good Printing Surface

    (verified owner)

    At first i was a bit skeptical if this new Surface would help me print better but after cleaning it and heat-cycling it through as described in the instructions i was surprised how easy it was. Before PrintBite i used ABS Juice for ABS and normal blue Painters Tape for PLA. But that meant always switching back and forth between the surfaces. I ordered Printbite after i heard about it from the Youtube Channel Makers Muse and wanted to try it out. roughly 7 Days later the Package Arrived and i installed it on my Printer (ANET A6 DIY). I did a few Prints and was impressed. Its so much easier now. Since there is no Auto Bed Leveling yet for my printer i have to level it manually. Now the Workflow is just: 1. Level the Bed , 2. Clean the Surface with a Cloth and a litte Windex/Acetone (depends on what is on my workbench at the time) and then Start the Print. After the Print has finished and i waited for the Bed to cool down to Room temperature it makes a little cracking noise and the Part just lays on the Surface as if it was placed there and you can see that the Print has a Shiny Bottom, just like on Glass or Kapton Tape. Its just amazing. No Warping at all.
    The Product is just fantastic. I had to Cut it on the Edges so that i still have access to the Leveling Screws, but this was easily done with a pair of side Cutters. I have no Idea how long this will last, but if it does not stick anymore i will definitely order it again.

      So can I get a big sheet and cut it into pieces?

    • j_perkes

      Admin

      We advise against buying a large sheet and cutting into smaller pieces as there is a significant risk of injury when trying to cut with light hand tools as it is a very tough material. Additionally it is very likely that the adhesive backing will become damaged causing the PrintBite surface to become uneven once applied. If you require a custom size we are happy to cut to your requirements. When we cut to size, we do this before applying the adhesive backing. We also offer discount for volume and multiple buys.

      This stuff is AMAZING! I was printing on masking tape, which worked really well, but every time I had to pull a print off I had to scrape it and knock it and fudge up my tape so I was constantly re-applying tape.

      As soon as I heard about this PRINTBITE I picked it up, as soon as it arrived in the mail I stuck it on and fired off a print, it worked wonderfully!

      I later read the instructions (Heat cycles with a damp cloth for 1 hour 2 times) and decided to do that. I found out my bed can’t actually get to the 110 very well, takes about 40 minutes. It’s fine, I print exclusively in PLA.

      The other thing I found out is I have to change my fan, it used to come on after the first layer, which cooled the material and popped the print off. It was really frustrating until I discovered that was the problbem. I set it to turn on at 10mm and now my prints stick perfectly. They come off as soon as the print job is done with a little muscle, or if you wait until the bed cools down, they’re not even stuck. Literally slide right off. The surface has a nice finish too, much better than masking tape. Not quite as squished as glass, so you can still see the bead. It’s an excellent product all around.

      I live in the USA and paid 30$ for this bed and highly recommend it. Better than BuildTak (that stuff sticks too damn much and is a waste of money) and beter than painters tape. There’s nothing like that easy release and cleanup. Now I have no more headaches with printing and it’s enjoyable once again!

      Thanks F3D team!

      I agree with everything Marco says, I’ve now had the printbite surface fitted to my Malyan M150 printer for a few weeks. I’ve printed ABS, PLA and PETG. The surface works best for ABS, as said by Marco once cooled the part slides off the bed, no juice or other means of getting the part to stick. PLA needs a little more pulling off but nothing that will cause any damage. PETG is a little more difficult again but does come off. I think the key is not to print too close and I have now fitted auto bed leveling to allow me to be more specific with the minimum gap.
      Would I recommend, absolutely, I would not go back to glass, juice, glue and failed parts!
      My only advice would be to fully read the instructions before fitting, several people on the groups have damaged the surface by cleaning with the wrong chemicals. A little fairy liquid (dish washing liquid) is best, a little, quick, acetone seems to be OK also but beware that it feels sticky when you do this so use with caution . Maybe the manufacturer can comment if acetone is OK. I can say that it seems to revive mine lol
