I'm introducing the easy way to remove printed models from heated playform, that I tried.
If use this method, you don't need to wait that the heated platform is getting cold.
Also, You don't need to rip the model off with brute force.


  1. Cut a stainless plate(0.1mm) to 10cm x 10cm.
  2. Cover with Kapton sheet on stainless plate surface. ( Before you use Kapton sheet, must sanded down it with some 220 grit sandpaper )
  3. Clip stainless plate on heated platform.
  4. Print any models as usual.
  5. After finish printing, remove models with stainless plate.
  6. Bend stainless plate little bit, you can remove the model easily.

There are no screw head bumps on my own heated platform - Absolutely flat surface. I'm using a flat top bolt instead of a hexagonal Head.
If you will use Makerbot version of heated platform, you must cut steinless plate off around bolt position for attach to platform.

Principle applies to Rapman, makerbot, and RepRap. It's in the right place.
