So how many are waiting for textured powder coated build surface?

Jun 13, 2018 9:07 pm

I'm holding out and this is my first 3D printer so it's quite tough knowing if I change to PEI a shipping number could show up fairly quickly now.

This is for a week 15 black parts with powder coated sheet. I see where they are supposed to start shipping the powder coated sheets at the end of this month but I have to wonder of there are a bunch of others doing the same.

Just curious to see how many there may be.

Week 9 black kit with powder coated sheet. I've waited this long, figure I might as well stick it out. Prusa may be good tech people, business people not so much.

I would like more removable build sheets, stick on pei would do, textured would give the option of alternate finish... at the moment we simply can't access any additional build surfaces.

my mk2.5 upgrade is sitting in a box, because I am using the build sheet on my mk2mmu...


I am using the mk2 mmu, because the mk3 mmu v2 isn't released yet...

bit of a circular issue!

$74 is a bit too much for my blood.

I just got a notice from DHL that my textured sheet has shipped from Prusa.

How did you even order it? I don't see them on their website.

I ordered my printer in October with it (told them to hold it until available). Prusa asked us in March to take the printer with the smooth PEI sheet and advised that they would ship us a textured sheet when available at no cost. So I guess it means that they have started to build inventory of textured sheets and can make good on their undertaking.

Having just had the smooth sheet fail with a jagged section 15mm x 6mm coming away, apparently as the 5mm x 50mm printed part section exerted enough effort mid length onto it to split it away when I made the minimal release bend, and on trying to get a replacement being told I am unable to get another, I don't think I will be rushing to buy the textured one!

Failed on the sixth print............. Not Happy!
