The Ziflex is a flexible and magnetic build plate, at an affordable price.
The printing surface is designed to ensure strong adherence to any material, and thanks to its flexibility, prints removal is easier than ever.
Our magnetic positioning technology allows you to remove and reposition your Ziflex in a few seconds and ensures a perfect alignment to your printer’s bed while maintaining a strong grip.
3D PRINTING WITHOUT ZIFLEX
Stop hurting yourself, your printer and your prints with (stupid) spatulas.
Removing 3D printed parts from a build plate is often a real pain. Using a spatula to remove a print can damage your printer, your print, or even yourself. It’s not a safe option: we all have already faced this struggle with this tool...
Making a part stick to the platform isn’t easy, and removing it is even more difficult. We usually use a lot of different tools and products to succeed in both print adherence and removal. It's over now. All these dangerous and unpractical tools are things of the past now. Ziflex replaces them all!
ZIFLEX 3D PRINTING
Easy, Flexible and Magnetic
Removing a print is now easier than ever, no matter the size or shape of your print. Just remove the Ziflex off of your printer and flex it.
ZIFLEX COMPLETE SYSTEM
Ziflex is a thin, flexible and heat resistant build surface, and features a coating that can handle any material. Thanks to its magnetic technology, Ziflex will be strongly attached to your printer and will be perfectly placed every time.
MAGNETIC POSITIONING TECHNOLOGY
Our magnetic positioning technology is strong and also directional. It guides your Ziflex in a single direction and ensures a perfect alignment to your printer’s bed while maintaining a strong grip.
Its incredible flexibility will allow you to easily remove any print, even the smallest one, without damaging your new build surface.
UNIFORM HEAT TRANSMISSION
The Ziflex can heat up to 90°C. As you can see from the thermal picture above, the Ziflex provides an effective heat transmission.
EASY TO INSTALL
The Ziflex comes in two parts, with strong directional magnetic sheets on both parts. Just stick the one with 3M adhesive to your original bed, and then place Ziflex on it. Calibrate your printer, and you're good to go for easy 3D printing!
We can adjust the Ziflex to ANY build plate size or shape
We can produce the Ziflex in any size and any shape (round or rectangular). From 10 square centimetres to 1 square metre build area, we can make a Ziflex for you ;)
These printers aren’t the only ones, we can make any size you need.
Very affordable solution
Save time. Save money. Get a Ziflex.
Nicolas : “We’ve founded Zimple almost two years ago with Antoine. Like many of you guys, I enjoy doing a lot of personal electronic and mechanical projects during my spare time. After 3 years using different 3D printers, I realized this wonderful machine needed a few additions to what came in the box: some upgrades to make them easier and safer to use. I’ve come up with a few improvements for my printers, and after a while, I realized it could interest other folks who enjoy 3D printing! That’s why we are here today, to bring to you another product that we think fits any maker’s needs.”
Who are we?
We’ve set up a first list of 3D printers compatibility, with the Ziflex sizes we will be producing (mm and inches sizes) and the price category. This list isn’t definitive: we probably forgot a lot of 3D Printers. If your printer isn’t in the list, contact us by email or directly on kickstarter via private message or comment, we will add your printer to the list.

Today, there are four different automated calibration technologies available on the market:
Ziflex will work perfectly with the first three technologies without any modifications: Capacitive, Mechanical, and Optical. For the inductive technology, a conductive receiver is needed, or not. For example, some makers are able to print on glass and without raft on Zortrax M200. This means Ziflex can work with this printer if you follow the same procedure.
Yes. PEI is flexible, not as much as the original surface, but it will work well on top of your Ziflex. If you would like to add it to your pledge at the end of the campaign, please tell us. If many are interested, we will include it as an option and you will be able to add it to your pledge after the campaign, in the final shipping form.
Yes. You will receive a form at the end of the campaign, where you will be able to specify the different printers on which you will use your Ziflex.
There is no minimum quantity for different sizes. If you take a 10 pack, you can choose 10 different printers, while they are in the same pricing category.
If you want different sizes from different price categories, pledge the smallest size you need, and you will be able to add the difference to your pledge at the end of the campaign with the shipping form (BackerKit).
In our factory, we’ve printed a lot of ABS on our Ziflex. 90°C Heated bed and 260°C extrudeur temp is working well, even if the print is very long (we’ve already printed some ZABS at 90°C / 260°C on a 50 hours print).
