    I wanted to try it and it does work as it is described ... $16 is a bit much for 1 piece as before my Zaxis adjuster, I dug into it a few times and made a few holes already.
    I've ordered 30m of kapton tape for $20 on ebay just in case ..... as the pieces sometimes stick so well on the buildtak I think something's going to break.

    In fact I hated buildtak bc it claimed you dont even need a heated bed and I even tried with hairspray and pieces kept unstucking during printing

    I guess winter has to do with this, but I always tried to keep ambient temp to 21ยบ


    BTW re on Z axis adjustments... you'll love this video from my spanish colleagues.... You can jump directly to 13:30 to see the results of the explanations hehe



    Yeah, autolevel of the Z axis on realtime
