    It's what i'm currently using for my printbite on the flashforge creator.

    Seriously though 30 euros is worth the price.
    Isn't printbite self adhesive already?

    Haven't yet measured them but i think maybe 2 mm and the bed should be either 5 or 6 mm

    the original printbite I got a couple years ago - was not self adhesive.
    It also did not have the very fine pattern the current stuff has.

    I'd have to say that the sheet of recent printbite on alexa is noticeably better than the original sheet on the flashforge.

    Hello guys, long time no see, i've been pretty busy lately.
    I've only recently gone back having fun with the printer, i finally decided to buy a glass to replace the stock pad which is absolute trash. i bought this simple 3mm 150x150mm glass, but when it arrived home, i found out it's not exactly 150x150mm because apparently these guys don't cut with CNC, so it's basically 148.85x148.68mm and the plate is 150.03x149.86mm, so yeah guess what happens...

    here's few pics:

    i contacted the shop where i bought this, and they asked me to send photos and everything, but it's unlikely they'll replace or refund me anything, it's ebay after all, so i'll probably have to find another way to keep the glass in position. i might try a 145x145x0.5mm thermal pad or some thermal tape or maybe, even better, a big ass 150x150 adhesive thermal adesive pad. What do you guys think?

    Double sided vinyl sticky tape will do it. Doesn't need to be special thermal transfer. Its that thin that it doen't effect the heat teansfer.

    Thank you both, aardvark could you please link (even pm) exactly what you have in mind? I actually don't know how's that particularly called in my language.

    number40fan LOL! didn't expect such thing to be suggested also, how does it behave with heat?

    Alright, meanwhile i bought a slim thermal pad, which i'll try otherwise i'll try everything you guys suggested, probably giving the tape priority.
