I tried to take up their offer of tickets but no reply :( (I'm not paying £17 + fares to go on my own)

Ethan replied to me saying that I can call him on site and he will send someone outside with extra staff ticket.
I don't have his number yet, I will chase him tomorrow.

I saw there a few interesting things.
Unfortunately I didn't have much time to make a full report about it.
All of the major brands were there with nice looking printers, many multicolour prints, colorfab filaments and others, 3d scanners, etc.
It was a nice and small show with everything.

One of the few flyers I took was from this guys, that launched to market yesterday: http://zinomat.com
Flexible bed sheet that magnetically stays on the bed and can very easily remove printed parts.
The cost is cheap enough to buy one and give it a try.

Did they say what the size is, as they only offer 1 product in their store?

It is 26 cm x 22 cm but can be cut with regular scissors.
I held it on my hands and it seemed a good value for money.
I hope it lasts a bit longer than the BuildTak.
The surface looks similar for good adhesion without the need of any spray or tape or probably even heating.

Hmmm interesting... so it's two pieces? you "glue" one piece to the alu bed and the other magnets to this part, right?
