Bonus Items

Decal Applicator

BuildTak has amazing printing surfaces, PEI surfaces, flex plate systems, spatulas for easy 3D Print removal, Filaments and more. The decal applicator included this month helps you get the perfect installation of your printing surface onto your bed. The printing surface helps to get that perfect first layer to stick, and keeps your prints in place during the duration of your print. Once your print is done, allow the bed to cool down to room temperature for an easier release. Don’t have a BuildTak printing surface yet? The UFO this month also contained a coupon code for 10% off!

Sample Pack – The great guys over at Magigoo were nice enough to send over sample packs of their printing surface adhesive and release product for every new subscriber of the UFO boxes. We have found that the combination of Magigoo and BuildTak is a perfect mix of making sure your prints stick to your bed and release easily when the bed cools down. On top of that, using Magigoo helps to lengthen the life of your BuildTak surfaces, getting more prints out of both products before needing to be replaced. We should be stocking them soon, but in the mean time check out their website for distributors.

We couldn’t fit an entire Filabot into our boxes unfortunately, but they sent over some swag in the form of pens and stickers! If you don’t know anything about FilaBot, I suggest checking out their website as they are recycling items made out of plastic, such as plastic potties, CD cases, toothbrushes and vacuum nozzles. Their system looks pretty darn cool if you ask me and and having a new way to recycle plastic is always a good thing.
