Vinyl Bed Tape - Textured 285x165mm
Stock Code: ptTapeVSh28x16

1-5 Ready for Despatch

This precut sheet of textured tape is 285x165mm to fit a Makerbot Replicator2 print bed. The texture means that your printout locks on to the bed much more strongly than using masking tape

Features Specs Support
This allows you to use a Replicator2 to print ABS overcoming the main restriction of not having a heated bed to ensure the ABS sticks. In testing we have found that if the filament/nozzle cooling fan comes on, it results in some splitting between the layers - if you wait until the fan comes on (after the first few layers of printing) then turn the fan off in the machine menu, it will stay off for the rest of the print. See the second image where the print on the left is with the fan turned off, and the one on right has the nozzle fan turned on.
The print can still be removed with a spatula, but as the adhesion is so good, consider the tape as disposable. You should get 6-10 printouts on any spot on the tape depending on how careful you are, moving the printout to different parts of the bed will allow you to get more from your tape. It can be peeled up and restuck a few times if you need to remove bubbles or reflatten the tape.
To apply the textured tape:
Clean the bed, preferably with rubbing alcohol (iospropyl alcohol)
Smooth on the sticker from one edge of the bed, preferably with our Plastic Scraper. You can heat the tape with a heat gun to make it more flexible
Dont forget to re-level your bed, as this tape is thicker than masking tape
Clean before use with isopropyl alcohol or actone
Pull off to remove - leaves little or no residue - easily cleaned with isopropyl alcohol
The adhesive is rated for a temperature range of -15 to 150 degrees C.
