While Tiko build plate works well, I like having multiple build plates and don't like printing with rafts.

These rings help keep the Tiko from shifting when placed on a glass or polycarbonate sheet, and act as a template for cutting the sheet. Just glue the ring on a sheet of polycarbonate, then trim the edges with a 3d printed router table.

I used 1/8" polycarbonate (these were left over from my RigidBot), but thinner sheets would be cheaper and probably would work just as well. The sheets should be about 10" square or larger.

Any chance you could post your Tiko settings when you use this build plate?

I'd guess the blue things are tubing being used for a remote nozzle fan, since that's one on the Tiko's flaws

It looks like you added carbon fiber rods over your support rods. Did that improve your print quality at all with this printer? Also, I was wondering what the blue things were going down to the liquifier assembly?

Yeah I added some epoxy tubes, I don't think they improve print quality. If you want to improve print quality try reinforcing the motor mount clamps. More info here:

The blue things are air tubing for print cooling, something I've been experimenting with. The parts will end up on Thingiverse eventually.
