Gizmo Dorks PEI Sheet, 8″ x 8″ 3D Printer Build Surface Polyetherimide Ultem

PEI (Polyetherimide) sheets provide a 3D printing build surface that requires no tape, slurry, or adhesive. ABS and PLA both stick extremely well to the surface, which eliminates the need for support rafts used for better adhesion.

How to Use:

Cut the PEI sheet to size by scoring with a hobby knife. There are two methods to attaching the PEI to your print bed. The first method is to just clamp the sheet to the print bed using binder clips. We find that 2 on each side works great.The second method, get 3M 468MP Transfer Tape and use it to stick the PEI to the print bed.

Once the PEI sheet is attached, re-level your print bed and you are ready to go!

It helps to wipe the surface down with isopropyl alcohol, methyl alcohol, or soap in between prints. This will ensure the PEI is clean, and help adhesion. Light sanding with 5000 grit paper will also give the PEI sheet more life.

Product Features

  • Great for printing ABS and PLA (along with many other materials) directly on to print surface without the need for additional adhesives or tape.
  • Single 0.8mm sheet installs quickly on top of existing build platform
  • Blue protective film guards against scratches during shipping. Remove film before using PEI sheet.
  • Reuse for multiple prints, just wipe down with isopropyl alcohol between prints for best results
  • Easily cut down to size by scoring with a utility knife

Gizmo Dorks PEI Sheet, 10″ x 10″ 3D Printing Build Surface with 3M 468MP Adhesive Tape

PEI (Polyetherimide) sheets provide a 3D printing build surface that requires no tape, slurry, or adhesive. ABS and PLA both stick extremely well to the surface, which eliminates the need for support rafts used for better adhesion. The printed 3D parts will adhere to the PEI surface on a heated bed, and it will release or pop off when cooling down.

How to Use:

Cut the PEI sheet to size by scoring with a hobby knife. Remove the blue protective film from the PEI sheet. Carefully apply the 3M 468MP Transfer Tape and use it to stick the PEI to the print bed.

Once the PEI sheet is attached, re-level your print bed and you are ready to go!

It helps to wipe the surface down with isopropyl alcohol, methyl alcohol, or soap in between prints. This will ensure the PEI is clean, and help adhesion. Light sanding with 2400 grit paper will also give the PEI sheet more life.

Product Features

  • Great for printing ABS and PLA (along with many other materials) directly on to print surface without the need for additional adhesives or tape.
  • Single 0.8mm sheet installs quickly on top of existing build platform
  • Blue protective film guards against scratches during shipping. Remove film before using PEI sheet.
  • Reuse for multiple prints, just wipe down with isopropyl alcohol between prints for best results
  • Includes: 1x PEI Sheet, 1x 3M 468MP Transfer Tape

Orthopaedic surgeons use 3D printer to build replicas of patient bone injuries in Mackay

Surgeons at a north Queensland hospital are using a 3D printer to build life-size replicas of patients’ fractured bones.

Mackay Base Hospital is the first hospital in regional Queensland to incorporate 3D printing into patient treatment, after similar machines were introduced in Brisbane and Gold Coast hospitals.

Surgeons can input data from patient CT scans into the printer, which then takes 3-12 hours to build the bone model, depending on the size of the bone and the severity of the fracture.

While the replica is being printed, doctors can check in remotely via a webcam installed inside the machine to monitor the building progress.

Orthopaedic surgeon Jonathan Davis said having the faithful replicas before surgery would allow doctors to make decisions they otherwise would have to make in the operating theatre.

“At the moment we have CT scans and X-rays which are all 2D and quite hard to visualise,” he said.

“A 3D structure, which is what you’re dealing with in life and then obviously when you’re in the operating theatre, there’s a lot of soft tissues in the way and you only have a limited exposure of the bone.

“In this case we can isolate the bone as a whole and hold it in your hand, have a look at it from all the angles and see what we’re dealing with.”

The printer uses tightly-rolled plastic filament that is heated to a high temperature, melted and then deposited onto a printing platform one layer at a time.

The printer was purchased by the hospital for about $8,000 and shipped from The Netherlands, but printing a bone can cost as little as $10.

Having more time to plan reduces infection

Dr Davis said having the replicas available could potentially reduce surgery time, leading to a lower infection risk.

“It’s all about decreasing the surgical procedure time,” he said.

“The best way to do that is with good prior planning of the surgical procedure and really having a plan of attack before you go in and open the skin.

“The longer the skin is open, there’s numerous issues including infection and also damage to the skin and soft tissues, which we can avoid by having shortened and efficient operating times.

“From a surgical planning point of view, it will save time in terms of the time the patient may be on the operating table, because we’ll have more of a structured plan.

“If you came in, for instance, with a nasty fracture in your arm, we could then print that off.

“We could print the other side as well, the healthy side, and we could use the healthy side to really see what the normal architecture of the bone would be and use that to size and fit plates.”

3D models boost patient understanding

Patients having the chance to hold a replica of their injured bone in their hand could boost their understanding of their treatment.

“Some studies have been done previously into the consent process and whether or not a 3D printed model can increase the patient’s understanding of their condition and of their fractures,” Dr Davis said.

“It shows that really there is a definite model of 3D printing in patient education.”

The plastic used to build the bones will melt before it can be sterilised, but doctors are experimenting with different materials so the bones can be taken into the operating theatre.

BuildTak 3D Printing Build Surface, 6.5″ x 6.5″ Square, Black (Pack of 3)

The Buildtak 3D-printing build surface is a 6.5″ x 6.5″ square sheet that adheres to a print bed of a fused-filament 3D printer (sold separately) to help the filament stick during printing, while also enabling clean removal of the printed part afterward. The sheet is compatible with ABS, PLA, HIPS, PET+, brick, wood, and flexible (TPE) filaments (sold separately), and has a durable construction that allows for multiple uses with either the same or different filament material. The build surface can also be used with nylon and t-glase when a thin layer of washable glue stick (sold separately) is spread onto the surface. It installs more quickly and with fewer bubbles than tape or films.

Ideal Jacobs manufactures the Buildtak 3D-printing build surface and provides custom services such as rapid prototyping, laser-cutting, machining, and injection molding. The company, founded in 1921 and headquartered in Maplewood, NJ, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards 9001:2008 and 14001:2004.

Product Features

  • Build sheet adheres to a print bed to help the filament stick during printing, while also enabling clean removal of the printed part afterward
