northtype joins manufacturers who have developed a printing surface that improves adhesion of printed objects. This excellent feature promises to reduce warping problems. Problem that occurs mainly in ABS prints.
Flatforce is the product presented by the company that it is sold in different sizes and shapes to fit most printers on the market

To ensure a good impression of our pieces must be fully adhered to the base surface. Most 3D printer owners use home remedies to improve adherence of different materials. The best known techniques are hairspray, Kapton tape and ABS solutions. But all these methods are still homemade and their success depends largely on the skill with which they are applied on the printing surface. Give place to very disparate results between printing and printing.

Manufacturers of 3D printers on their latest printer models ha heated bed is incorporated that is responsible for heating the printing surface and improving adhesion of the filaments of different materials. However, most makers in addition to the heated bed continue to use traditional methods.

There are manufacturers who have gone one step further and have started to manufacture self-adhesive sheets to bond to printing surfaces. These sheets present better adherence but they are usually damaged if they touch the print head.


Northype proposes a technical printing surface to completely replace the current surface of our printer.

Flatforce Features

The material with which this printing surface is made reduces the temperature at which the hot bed must be set to ensure good adhesion of the filament. The manufacturer ensures that it has tested the product with more than 47 materials ABS, PLA, Nylon, flexible filament among the best known.

You just need to let's replace our surface current print by Flatforce and let's recalibrate the printer. How it will not be necessary to heat the warm bed so much our printers will start printing earlier and will consume less electricity.

The product it is not distributed directly to Spain but we can easily buy it on the manufacturer's website. We can find the product in different shapes and sizes to facilitate adaptation to our current printer. Depending on the size the price of the product will vary from € to € 35 88.
