General Tips & Tricks for printing with the Formfutura EasyPad™ The Formfutura EasyPad™ sheet can best be used while following the instruction below:
Clean your print platform thoroughly and make sure it is free of any debris.
Trim the Formfutura EasyPad™ sheet to match the size of your build plate (if not already).
Remove the white adhesive liner and apply the Formfutura EasyPad™ sheet to the cleaned print platform. Start from one edge of the platform and work your way to the other edge, smoothing the Formfutura EasyPad™ sheet with a credit card or decal applicator.
Re-level your print surface and ensure that the nozzle height is properly set (usually between .10 and .25 mm).
Use a spatula or putty knife with smooth/rounded corners to prevent damaging to your Formfutura EasyPad™ sheet. Avoid using solvents, such as acetone, to clean it.
Typically with other build surface solutions, such as blue masking tape or polyimide, a heavy deposit or “smooth” is used on the first print layers. With the Formfutura EasyPad™ sheet this is not needed.
