GeckoTek EZ-Stik Build Surface Review

6
I recently needed to replace the China made generic build surface on my Monoprice Duplicator I3 V2 3D printer. First let me say I do not work for GeckoTek and I not being paid in any way by them for my opinion. The sheet of GeckoTek in this review was purchased by me with my own funds. While considering on what to replace it with I caught a review by the JATMN on his YouTube channel. I was very impressed with the review and so I decided to purchase a sheet and try it. GeckoTek is the name of the company and they specialize in hot, cold and magnetic base surfaces for filament such as ABS, PLA, PETG, Nylon, Composites. I have used Buildtek in the past and will discuss the differences in the two surfaces next. Their surfaces come in a wide range of sizes and are easily trimmed to fit your build plate. I bought the 200x210 and didn’t have to trim anything, it fit perfect.
