Webberen vs Prototypum pad (review) May 24 2017

Niels Oestbjerg aka Webberen is a 3D printing and design enthusiast from Denmark. He loves to test materials and everything new. So we send him Prototypum adhesive pad and this is an interview about it.

 

Hello Niels, thank you for your time how are you? : )
Hello, no problem, I'll gladly assist you with your questions.

What kind of printer/s do you have?
Currently I have a Wanhao Duplicator i3, the first version. It is heavily modded, and I am glad to see, that Wanhao have made a lot of the changes on their newest models.

I am working on getting the final pieces together on my own 3d printer. A 30x30cm diy-beast. I have designed it from scratch, but it's still a work in progress.

I hope to have a real Prusa i3 machine in my printroom real soon, also I think that I need some more, and different machines overall, to be able to make some better tests of filaments and other 3D-print stuff. Also I run into prints queuing up with just the one working printer.
 



What were the first impressions about the Prototypum pad?
First unboxing, you get this amazing packaging, and working in the packaging industry every day, I was very pleased to see that Prototypum knows, that this is the first way to interact with your customers. In the package I then found this cool pad that looked like it was made from very high quality materials, and I then realized that it was with a magnetic slipmat making it easy to remove after each print. This feature is fantastic, I know I lot of printers where it's not easy to access prints when they sit on the printbed, and this takes care of that. They also include a cool scraper and a meassure-piece for bed leveling.



On which material types did you try the pad?
I started with the Fillamentum Timberfill which is a PLA-like filament of which I know makes some great looking prints, also I just made the exact same model on my kapton-tape fitted heated bed, so that made it easy to compare the two types of print surfaces. It went very good, and the first layer had a bottom finish that was matte and looked like the rest of the print, where as the kapton tape makes it all glossy on the bottom.

However, I do a lot of prints in ABS-filament, and I really wanted to see how it would work with this, the higher temperature, and ABS-filament being a very lively material. First impressions was poor, I tried to print with no help on the printed piece and it came of halfway in the print. But I jumped on the horse again and gave it a little brim, and this made the world of difference, now I could have a nice stable print, but still I have the ability to remove the entire pad after printing, and by the way, wait until it has cooled down, I print ABS with a bed temperature of 100°C which is extremely hot for your fingers. ;)



We were watching you on your Instagram and it seems there was some problems with ABS…
Yes but as stated earlier, I found a good solution for the issue, and it is actually one I always used my self, I just wanted to put some pressure on the product, it was a test after all. ;)
 

Can you tell us how it goes to use it?
I am still going to be testing it with other filaments like some flexible filaments, but I am sure that it will be good for this too. Also I unfortunately have made some small burned markings in the pad from when I aborted a print with a nozzle temperature of 245°C, the nozzle was on first layer, and when it stood still it made a little mark, this should be taken into account with the pad, the surface is not rated for that high temperature when it stands still in the same spot.

What about PLA, did you try it too?
Yes in fact I did a fidget spinner in iceland blue PLA. And as I expected it worked very fine on the Prototypum Pad. But then again, PLA is, in my opinion, the easiest filament to lay down.
 



Is there anything what need to be said about the Prototypum pad?
I have a few things you need to know about the pad:

  • Make sure that when printing in ABS, not to make a too thin brim, or first layer that is. First of all, you should keep the nozzle at least 0.2mm away from the pad when it's hot, otherwise it will burn a line or hole in the Pad. Also it’s a pain to remove leftover on the pad if it’s not thick enough.
  • Never use acetone on the pad. When using for instance, kapton tape or just a glass surface, you can gain a good grip by rubbing some acetone on the build plate, but you should NEVER do that to your Prototypum Pad, it will dissolve the surface.
  • Take your time when placing the tape on your build plate. You don't want any bubbles to lift the pad, making for an uneven printbed. If you end up with bubbles, you can of course, use a very sharp knife to puncture them without making any issues afterwards.



    How many stars is the pad worth?
    I'll rate it with **** (4 stars), if the surface could withstand higher heat, like say, kapton tape, it would get 5. It’s is a very good product.

     

    Thank you Webberen for testing and your opinion!
