Product Info

Why do you want this product?

This listing is for just the plate, get the magnetic base separately or in a bundle with the plates.

With our flex plates you no longer need to use scrapers to remove your parts from the printer bed. Just let it cool after a print (to 40C or less) and then flex the plate and watch the parts pop off! Words don’t do these justice. Check out our video below. You do need the magnetic base to attach these to your printer bed.

Maintenance Tip – Make sure to clean your bed before applying the magnet and occasionally wipe down the plate with IPA to keep the surface free of oils for best adhesion.

Important Information

  • Recommend print temps
    • PLA – 60C
    • HTPLA – 60C
    • PETG – 70-80C
    • PCTG – 70-80C
    • ABS – 100C
  • Material Guidelines
    • ABS – You will need to use something like VisionMiner Nano Polymer to stick ABS to PEI, or use our EZMat on the other side of the plate. Smaller parts will stick but larger parts may lift without an adhesion promoter on the PEI surface
    • PETG/PCTG/TPU – If you are not careful with your 1st layer you can risk bonding the PETG/PCTG/TPU to the PEI surface. This will damage the surface. To prevent damage to the surface apply hairspray or PVA gluestick before printing PETG/PCTG/TPU on the PEI or EZMat surfaces
  • Want to increase or decrease adhesion?
  • Bed Sizing Notes
    • Be sure to check your bed side. TH3D is not responsible for the wrong size ordered and/or errors in the listings. We try do our best to keep descriptions up to date but some manufacturers make changes to machines after release.

All plates and magnets are inspected to ensure full functionality to make sure they meet our standards for them. Smooth PEI plates may have a non-uniform appearance under the PEI as that is the adhesive visible through the PEI sheet, this is normal. Textured PEI plates may have a non-uniform appearance as they are sprayed and the PEI is baked onto the plate, this is normal. Only if a plate has a defect that affects it’s functionality will be considered defective.

  1. Question

    JPomodoro

    Two Questions: 1).Do the Smooth PEI sheets use 3M adhesive between the steel and the PEI? 2). How is the textured PEI held unto the steel? Powder Coating? Thanks!

      1. The smooth is held down with high temp (140C max temp) 3M Adhesive tape to the plates
      2. The textured plates have the PEI fused to the plate like a powder coating.

      Regarding the textured surface: How goes PETG? Do I still need some sort of release agent, or will the prints come off properly from the textured plate?

      A release agent would not be a bad idea. PETG tends to like to bond to most surfaces.

  2. Best build surface... Ever!

    phil.stanz (verified owner)

    I’ve printed on the default Creality Ender 3 build plate, their magnetic build plate, and a glass build plate (with blue tape, glue stick, and hairspray used for better adhesion). The exflex plate (smooth finish) is far and away the best build surface I’ve used. I just watched the best first layer I’ve ever gotten go down. I have the EZABL installed, as well as TH3D’s dual Z kit and the EZFlex build plate has made a bigger difference to my prints than those two combined! I would recommend both the EZABL and Dual Z to anyone, they both work great and are worth the $$ for sure, but the EXFlex build plate is on a whole different level! You won’t get more bang for your buck than this.

  3. Question

    Eric L. (verified owner)

    My Ender 3 Pro is bowed downwards slightly in the middle. I currently use a glass bed and EZABL Pro to account for this and haven’t had any problems with my prints.

    I have two questions:

    1. Will a flex plate + magnetic base combo work well when placed directly on my slightly warped bed?
    2. If not, would it be advisable to place the flex plate & magnetic sheet on top of the glass itself?

      You will be fine since you have the EZABL on there putting it directly on the bed. The EZABL works 100% with the flex system.

  5. Question

    mike-1440 (verified owner)

    My first layer was too close, and now there’s a line of ABS that won’t come off. How do you recommend cleaning the textured plate?

    • Tim Hoogland (verified owner)

      Normal cleaning would be done with isopropyl alcohol and a soft cloth or heavy duty paper towel. As for the stuck filament you could try to carefully remove it by hand but be careful not to damage the surface.

  6. Reliable adhesion allows me to fill up a large bed plate with confidence

    mike-1440 (verified owner)

    Upgrading my old FT-5 to using this plate has breathed new life into a printer that hasn’t been reliable int the past. Compared to the mirror it had been using, this is a huge advantage in reliability, plus the textured plate gives a great look to the first layer.

  7. Great build surface

    Ken (verified owner)

    I’ve only printed on Creality’s glass plate for quite a while now using both the side with the coating that is designed to hold the print down and the smooth glass side. My printer came with their CMagnet and I wasn’t a fan of it so I never used it. When I would print on the glass and it was a long print I would always use a raft to prevent it from falling off or having corners peel up. This wasn’t ideal because it caused the print to have a horrible surface finish. I ordered both the textured and smooth flex plates and they work great. The prints stick to the plates perfectly and the textured one leaves a great finish on the part that is touching the plate and the smooth one leaves a nice semi-gloss finish. I used the textured one during an 11-hour print with no raft without any problems. When I removed it off of the plate the bottom was perfect and there was no sign of lifting. The smooth one also works great. I printed a thin 2-hour print on that and there was also no sign of lifting. I wish I would have discovered these plates sooner they are a great addition to any 3D printer and they are working great on my CR-20 Pro. I recommend this to anyone that needs a reliable bed solution.

      do you still need hairspray? or an adhesive on the flex mag plate?

      PLA do not require anything. ABS sticks well but can still curl up (we use vision miner). PETG/PCTG/TPU should have something between them as they can bond to the PEI.

  8. First time use

    Marcos A (verified owner)

    This is a great product when your glass bed is missing some pieces off the surface, in this case my tevo tornado decided to home into the bed and print with nose of hot end into the surface making almost impossible to remove without breaking glass off surface (I’ve fixed the homing issue first and got lucky there was still glass holding silicone heater). More than for the price it’s an amazing product, prints coming off bed with ease on smooth surface, and no heat. Have no cons except the metal sheet’s small tabs used to remove form magnetic sheet makes contact with tornado’s build plate bolts, so I had to bend the tabs up away with a wrench so there would be no bumps on the outer edges. Had the tabs been moved 12 to 15 mm towards the middle it would have fit perfectly. Overall a must for beds that are just glass and glued heaters attached to them.

      Thanks for letting us know. I’ll see if we can have the tabs pushed in on the 310×310 plates on the next batch.
