Sanding the building plate isn’t 100% necessary, but it increases adhesion significantly; therefore, we’ve included a piece of 80 grit sandpaper in your Sonic Mini 4K toolbox. The following are tips for sanding the building plate.
Sanding the building plate
Roughen the Surface
- Sand the building plate in one direction by placing its short side against a stable surface.
- Use the 80-grit sandpaper from your toolbox.
- Sand approximately 6-8 times to ensure an even roughening of the entire plate.
- After sanding, inspect the plate's roughness. It should exhibit a textured surface.
- Verify roughness by running fingertips across the plate to ensure an even roughening.
Clean the Plate
- Clean the building plate using 95% alcohol, IPA, or Phrozen Wash.
- Ensure thorough cleaning, paying attention to all edges.
- Attach the building plate to your Sonic Mini 4K LCD 3D printer.
- You are now prepared for the next step: Setting up your Sonic Mini 4K.
Follow these simple steps to effectively prepare your building plate for optimal performance with the Sonic Mini 4K.
