Glass-ceramic build plate?

Please Login to Comment

So, TEVO talks about a "glass-ceramic build plate" in the specs of the TEVO Flash. I wasn't really sure if this was just a marketing term or really something "special". Most reviews I saw said something along the lines "Build plate look like normal glass", so I contacted TEVO.

The build plate is indeed a special kind, not just regular glass (or boro). This glass type plate is baked in an oven, just like normal ceramics. It's something like the ones on the Airwolf AXIOM printers. The pros are: Better heat resistant and strength, no more chipping, better heat transfer and better adhesion to the print. So far it looks like it sticks better than boro glass, but it's not the same as a special non-glass surface like the one on the TEVO Tornado.
