Make Print Removal More Convenient

Instead of struggling to remove parts directly from your 3D printer, you can now quickly remove the entire OctoGrab™ spring steel PEI sheet from the print bed along with your finished 3D printed part. Take your magnetic OctoGrab™ spring steel print surface and the finished part to a comfortable work area, bend the flexible OctoGrab™ spring steel bed in any direction, and your 3D print should release from the smooth PEI surface with ease.

This simple upgrade to your LulzBot 3D printer can make a big difference in your printing experience. TPU handles on the OctoGrab™ spring steel print surface allow for easy removal of the print bed while still warm and aids in realigning the surface when replacing the print surface on the magnetic bed.

Strong Adhesion, Easy Part Removal

The special high-temperature neodymium magnets embedded in the 1/8" thick 6061 aluminum plate can hold up to 140c for extended durations without losing any magnetic field strength over time, unlike standard print bed magnets which can start losing field strength around 100c. The magnets are encapsulated inside a thin polycarbonate sheet.

The replaceable spring steel sheet has a layer of polycarbonate film on the back and a smooth sheet of PEI on the top printing surface. The PEI sheets are comparable to LulzBot's original glass/PEI printing surface but offer a stronger grip of 3D prints to the 3D printing bed during printing and even easier release of finished 3D prints.

The LulzBot OctoGrab™ Magnetic Flex bed is made in the USA, with a focus on local and regional supply chains, LulzBot printers are as rugged as the plains of North Dakota where they are manufactured.

Quick & Easy Upgrade

Upgrading is easy. 

If your LulzBot Mini 1 or Mini 2 already has a LulzBot Mini Modular Print Bed System installed, this upgrade simply replaces your Glass/PEI Print Surface.  If you do not already have the Mini Etched Modular Print Bed Heater you must also purchase one with your OctoGrab™ Magnetic Flex Bed. 

To upgrade, simply remove the four bed leveling washers and existing glass/PEI bed from your Mini Etched Modular Print Bed Heater equipped Mini 1 or 2.  Insert the OctoGrab™ aluminum magnetic base on top of the Mini Etched Modular Print Bed Heater and replace your bed leveling washers.

Important: Adjust your Z offset to the new print surface and start printing!

After prolonged use, you may need to clean your OctoGrab™ surface with a 50/50 mix of isopropyl alcohol and water to renew its adhesion abilities. Allow the surface to dry completely before printing.
