The ZYYX™ Build Plate uses a premium borosilicate glass base plate laminated with a custom plastic surface. This build plate surface enables printing with most of the currently available filament types without any need for a heated plate or adding temporary materials to the plate surface. The build plate is held in place with three neodymium magnets, making it easy to remove the plate before removing the prints. A ZYYX™ Build Plate is supplied with the printer, and this will last about 6 months under normal usage. After this time the plate surface will have some wear and to ensure good adhesion the plate should be replaced.
