Some of the print platforms that were shipped were unfortunately slightly warped making larger prints difficult to stick. It would also make the fibreglass heated bed hard to stick to it also.
We've been working on a solution and have now released a new and improved platform that combines the heater element and platform into one 3mm aluminium bed.
Besides just being flatter, there is better heat distribution to the edges and to the steel Flexplate. The steel Flexplate also grips better to the new platform (less likely to slip) and the magnets also perform better. There’s also no need for the springs any more, it just fixes straight onto the stand-offs. It also runs at a higher wattage and heats up quicker too.
Unfortunately we're not be able to offer it as a free replacement but we are making it available at essentially a cost price. It's now available for (until 26th May) for £20. We're hoping to start sending them out on the 10th of June.
RRP after the pre-order window will be £36.

Further note on shippping:
The size/weight heated platform (0.65KG) on it’s own just fits into our first shipping bracket, any extra item will tip the shipping into the next bracket.
If you order anything else we would still ship everything together with the new platform around the 10th of June.
