How do you attach it to the print bed? I have a Printrbot Simple Metal, but without a heated bed.
Since there are plenty of comments on peel & stick, I will instead comment on using the product, be careful with solvent, but one wipe with acetone ruined the matte surface, for the Simple Metal.
It's expensive if it's under 50 but how long does it last?
I messed up a few pieces before I got it sorted out, but I've been printing on the same piece of BuildTak for about a month now.
I don't know what it's for.
You put it on the printing bed of your 3D printer to help your prints adhere and then come off of the printer bed.
Does the thickness of the buildtak affect the auto-leveling printers?
The buildtak is a type of plastic and you need to account for the added thickness by lowering the probe and chaging your offset in the firmware.
Do you need to glue it up as well?
It's not necessary to glue, but you need to be careful with your nozzle distance if you want to get your part off without destroying the build.
