Unless you are willing to shop around and perhaps parlay a nice hunk of cash into a high-end 3D printer, you may very well be dealing with a standard 3D printer with a non-heated print bed. Most 3D printing enthusiasts are so well-acquainted with the process of being crafty and resourceful in finding solutions to deal with adhesion problems, they could probably get together and cook up quite a recipe book of remedies regarding the experiences–and trials and tribulations–of dealing with everything from tape and glue to hairspray and slurry.
While you may think you are getting good at cutting corners in dealing with adhesion issues, all it takes is one disastrous experience to really ruin your hour, day, week–and a perfectly good 3D print. Polish company CORO Technology is coming to your rescue with a no-nonsense solution in the form of the COROPad, an adhesive pad for standard 3D printers that allows you to print over and over without issue.
Made by a 3D printer manufacturer with a commitment to high precision and quality output of 3D prints, it makes sense that they wouldn’t want to go to all that trouble just to see users left with problems at the end due to simple adhesive challenges. CORO Technology offers 3D printing equipment on both the individual and industrial level.
“CORO Technology devices bring huge possibilities and surpass the limits that once were unreachable,” states the team on their website.
Offering an improved method to deal with adhesion challenges indeed offers a way for users to surpass some extremely frustrating limits they may have once been dealing with. With ten sizes and five different color options, the adhesive pads can also be customized with the simple use of scissors. Available in ten print bed sizes ranging from 100×100 to 400×400, the COROPad is compatible for ABS, PLA, Laywood, and rubber filament. It takes just a minute to install, and works continuously even under very high temps, allowing for up to sixty 3D prints at a time.
To begin using the COROPad, all you need to do is degrease your print bed and adhere the pad to it, which is a piece of cake with CORO Technology’s high-temperature glue and the pad, which features just the right amount of stiffness for a very simple installation. You can say goodbye to all the messy home-made methods for adhesion that involve ongoing cleanup with no guarantee of success.
The COROPad should allow you to reap all the rewards of 3D printing with a perfect 3D printing surface, allowing for prints that don’t have any issues with detaching (especially at the corners too), and are easy to remove without offering any surprises at the end. It’s an easy way to get good-looking prints, affordably.
