Fiberglass pc boards without copper

Postby Drake » January 6th, 2013, 11:50 am

Anyone know where to get them?

I tried and love using my failed etch board for a 3d printing surface (non copper side)

Durable, rough enough to hold the print, and flexible so you bend the board and go to remove the part.

I would advise against it, the print sticks too well quite often. It also warps a lot when heated. I would advise on a glass bed with kapton tape. It gives the best base and is easy to replace/repair.

If you really want the board though. You can buy it up to A4 with copper on it. Just get 1 sided (other side makes a nice heat spreader), or etch it off.

Cynar makes a good point, just look into single-sided boards. Like this one: ... Q2s7EQ4%3d

I can't speak to the stick of the surface though. Good luck!
