Say goodbye to bed adhesion problems and hello to great print quality with the awesome Wham Bam Flexible Build System! Designed to offer some of the best Bed Adhesion qualities on the market, while also offering an easy release once cooled, these build systems are uniquely comprised of three distinct pieces, with the first being a magnetic base, the next being a strong (yet very flexible) spring steel plate, and the final piece of the puzzle being a beautiful PEX Build Surface. This awesome combination of parts allows you to enjoy awesome print quality from the very first layer, while the flexibility and portability of the spring steel plate means that you simply remove the plate from the magnetic bed and then “pop” the prints off with ease once they’re printed.

This Wham Bam Flexible Build System is 235x235mm in total size, and is made for a large majority of 3D Printers that offer 220x220mm X/Y build volume. This includes some of the most popular 3D Printers from the past few years, with the Ender 3 Series and Ender 5 basic versions being a part of this list, for which the Wham Bam FBS is ready to deliver great adhesion for an extensive range of different 3D Filaments. The actual build surface that sits atop the spring steel plate is made of PEX, or Cross-Linked Polyethylene, and this is somewhat like PEI, although it has an even higher glass transition rate and melting point. This subtle but important difference leads to excellent adhesion at temperatures above 50°C, but ensures that this surface doesn’t suffer from the frustrating surface bonding from over-adhesion – similar to how it happens with PEI and PETG.

These awesome adhesion-quality and convenience features all add up to one truly amazing package, and there aren’t many other Build Systems like this that can compete with such awesome features at such a great price. So if you’ve always loved the idea of having a removable build plate, but have always been troubled by the common problems associated with a removable magnetic build surface, the Wham Bam Flexible Build System is the solution that won’t demagnetise, won’t layer shift unexpectedly, and won’t deform even after hundreds of bends, twists and flexes. 

Please Note: While most Magnetic Build Surfaces typically suffer from loss of magnetism at high temperatures, these Wham Bam Build Systems have been specially designed to handle temperatures of up to 150°C without problem. So feel free to print ABS and other high temperature filaments to your heart’s content, without having to worry about your bed slipping loose or having similar issues from the extended periods of high temperatures.

Extra Note: If you like the idea of these build plates, but are looking for a different Build Surface Materials, we also have the Wham Bam PEI Build Surface and Wham Bam PC Build Surfaces available, to allow Makers to swap build surfaces with absolute ease.

Absolutely awesome

I really love this build system. I print with PLA and prior to getting the Wham Bam FBS, I used a glass bed and glue stick as an adhesion aid. Despite it working really well, it is quite messy as I had to scrape the bed with IPA after every print. With the Wham Bam FBS, there is no such mess, just a simple wipe with IPA and you are good to go! Really simple to install. I would definitely recommend this product

Best Build Surface Ever

I recently purchased an Ender 3 Pro with the removable magnetic build plate. and was highly disappointed with this system as I could not print ABS and when removing the top magnet from the bottom it would damage the top magnet as they would get stuck together after printing Large PLA Items. I then looked to see what was another possibility. I then cam across the Wham Bam FBS. When trying to source this I found it here at DIY Electronics. Got a fright at the price but decided I the reviews seem good so would take a chance. All I can say is that this is the best system I have ever used. I took a little bit of time to get the settings right and since then I have had absolute perfect printing. The prints stick well and once the build plate has cooled down it releases easily.

Wham Bam Flexible Build System - 235x235mm

Wham Bam Systems is a funky, lively brand created by Peter Solomon, who has actually been a relatively well known inventor for 45 years now. From developing laboratory methods and protocols, to work on complex interferometer mechanisms, Peter has been applying for patents since as far back as 1984 – and now his most recent work is the reinvention of the 3D Printer Build Platform. This is how Wham Bam Systems started, and since 2019 they have been gaining popularity as some of the most effective and most convenient build plate systems on the market.

Catering to a large range of popular 3D Printers from leading hobbyist 3D Printer brands, Wham Bam Systems offers some of the best build plates on the market, and with the recent addition of the Wham Bam HotBox to their catalogue, we can’t wait to see what else Wham Bam Systems has in the pipeline for future upgrades.
