In 3D Printing, first layer adhesion has always been an important aspect that has been difficult to get just right. This is because, in addition to nozzle height, bed temperature and a few other factors, the bed must be capable of effectively gripping the first layer with enough force to hold it there while the rest of the print gets laid. Fortunately, this can be made much easier with quality Printing Surfaces like this 310x310mm Anycubic UltraBase, which is a pane of tempered borosilicate glass that has been specially treated to both grip the first layer, as well as automatically release prints once they are cooled off.

The Anycubic UltraBase works by utilising extremely small air pockets in the top layer of the glass pane, which slightly expand when they get hot to draw in microscopic amounts of filament that the following layers can effectively stick to. Then, once the bed cools down, these tiny air pockets shrink and push the contents of the pockets out – resulting in an effect that automatically forces the finished prints off of the bed. In fact, within our offices and workshops, we always enjoy waiting for the prints to suddenly “pop” off the bed as it cools down, as it’s quite a novel experience compared to the numerous years we’ve spent scraping and manually forcing prints off of print surfaces like masking tape and ABS juice.

Although this bed is slightly larger than the standardised 300x300mm Heatbeds, it can simply be stuck directly onto the top of the existing bed with a slight overhang off the edges. Just be sure to remember that, if you are using a bed levelling sensor that detects metal, you will need to accommodate the extra 4mm thickness of the glass. This means some sensors won’t work due to the minimum detection distance, although some users have been able to remedy this with a layer of tin foil beneath the glass pane.

Typical Applications for Anycubic's UltraBase 310x310mm Heated Bed:

The Anycubic UltraBase has a relatively common size of 310x310mm, which allows it to be used on quite a wide range of different 3D Printers with a build volume of around 300x300mm. However, as with all other products, it’s prudent to do sufficient research to make sure that it will comfortably fit your printer. Fortunately, this bed has been designed in a universal manner, which means that it can be used with a wide range of 3D printers with similar build volumes.

If you‘re looking for a reliable build platform that improves print quality while adding convenience to the printing process, this 310x310mm Anycubic UltraBase is a valuable yet relatively inexpensive investment.

Anycubic are a brand dedicated to manufacturing, researching, developing and refining 3D printing technologies and consumables, and have been slowly garnering a strong community of users, ambassadors and evangelists over the years. They continuously bring out new models with various improvements that aim to enhance printing quality, speed, and convenience - with the end user as their top priority through each design. They are best-known for their Anycubic i3 Mega, Kossel Delta and Anycubic Photon printers, as well as the UltraBase, which is a modern design that utilises air pressure at different temperatures for effective print adhesion and removal.


What makes Anycubic unique as a 3D printer manufacturer, compared to many other brands in the world, is that despite their rapid R&D and design phases, they always ensure that the finished result is already excellent quality, with very few post-release iterations to products. This is a real benefit in such a fringe industry, since there are many brands that tend to release products that aren’t yet up to the quality standard we enjoy, resulting in post-purchase modifications and repairs.


These distinct characteristics are why we love to get 3D printers and supplies from Anycubic, as we know we can trust in more than just the quality of each machine, but also the excellent quality standard that each model will continue to live up to – for many years to come.
