When it comes to 3D Printing and first-layer adhesion, there are a surprising number of different choices that you as a Maker can choose from, ranging from classics like plain glass or metal beds, through to the more advanced materials like PEI and Polycarbonate. However, with so many options, it can sometimes be tricky to choose the best option, since each offers a distinct set of advantages and disadvantages depending on the design, the filament being used, as well as a few other factors. This is why we love products like these awesome Wham Bam Powder Coated PEI Flexi Plates, as these allow you to enjoy the full benefits of PEI, but without having to commit to an adhered PEI Sheet on your glass or metal bed.

When compared to the standard Wham Bam Preinstalled Flexi Plates, these Powder Coated PEI Flexi Plates offer more durability and a longer lifespan, and this is primarily due to the more rugged powder coating, but also because it provides two surfaces to utilise rather than just one. The thin, durable coating also directly translates to even fewer over-adhesion problems than what you might expect from PEI, as well as peace of mind in knowing that the entire surface is as flat as possible, without any undulations or curves that could cause problems. And of course, if you do manage to damage the bed or experience “baked in” filaments on the bed, you can simply flip it over and use the other side, essentially doubling the lifespan and ensuring awesome Bed Adhesion for longer than almost any other bed on the market.

Finally, just to add some awesome finishing touches, the powder coated surface also carries the extra the extra benefit of offering a beautifully textured surface finish, and compared to the ultra-smooth sheen of standard PEI Sheets, the finish created by the powder coating layer features a rougher, almost stippled surface that is quite reminiscent of BuildTak. And while this may not be the ideal choice for everyone, we personally love to have the choice of a smooth or a textured surface when designing and printing various things – which of course is particularly beneficial for covers and front panels.

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.
