warped Thermosurface FLX sprung steel plate for roboxpro


Topic starter

Just a quicky. We have just bought a Thermosurface FLX PEI sprung steel plate for the RoboxPro. It is quite convex and when placed on the heated bed, despite having powerful magnets to keep it in place, the middle of the plate is at least 1mm higher than the left and right sides with squishing of the first layer at the centre and hardly sticking towards the sides. Is it possible to bend the sprung plate safely to be flatter or should it be returned for a replacement? My lokbuild plate is minimally concave and is completely flat on the heated bed, but can't be used due to holes being created by the nozzle causing errors in bed levelling!

Thanks in advance.
