Magnetic Flexible PEI Build Plates for Ultimaker 3D Printers offers two different printing experiences. One side is smooth, and the other side is textured. Provides great adhesion between PEI and printing models, a smooth or textured model surface, flexibility, and quick & easy removal of prints. Fully compatible with the active leveling system on Ultimaker printers.
Sizing and Compatibility
This build plate is 355mm x 275mm, compatible with the Ultimaker S5 and S5 Pro Bundle.
We recommend installing the adhesive magnetic base on top of the glass build plate. This will provide a more level surface than the aluminum base plate. Because installing it in this manner will add several millimeters to the height of the bed, so a couple of adjustments will be needed before you get back to printing.
After this, you should be ready to print with your new PEI build plate! You can choose to print on the textured side or the smooth side, depending on your preference. Using adhesive is not required, but it doesn't hurt to apply some Magigoo on the PEI surface just to make sure you have no adhesion issues, especially with larger prints and more challenging materials. Happy printing!
Please note: As this is a third-party product, 3D Universe and UltiMaker cannot be held responsible for any issues caused with your 3D printer as a result of using this build plate. If you have a need to contact UltiMaker support for any print bed related issues, it may be necessary to revert to the original configuration before contacting them.
Want to be able to switch easily between the original glass build plate and the PEI flexible build plate? You can order a custom aluminum sheet and attach the magnetic base to this instead of attaching it directly to your existing glass build plate. Doing this allows you to switch between the PEI flexible magnetic build plate and the standard glass build plate without any need to adjust leveling.
To do this, you'll need to order an Aluminum Sheet 6061-T6 (Custom Cut), Thickness: .080", Size: 10 13/16 x 13 31/32 Inches. You can order this from our partners at Cut 2 Size Metals.

Nothing will impact your 3D printing results like the kind of filament you use. Good filament is highly consistent in diameter, is wound evenly onto the spool with just the right amount of tension, and will not tangle when being unwound. 3D Universe offers a wide range of high-quality filaments to choose from. We provide a 100% satisfaction guarantee on all filament we sell. If you have any problems, just send back the unused portion of the spool for a full refund. Check out our filament collection...
