3D printing demands uniform heating

Warping remains one of the biggest issues with filament 3D printing. A well-heated build plate improves print adhesion and quality. We designed the Calidum 3D printer heatbed for fast and consistent heating from the beginning. Print big with many materials. The Calidum is UL-recognized up to 200 °C, providing the heat you need for your hardest jobs. Our 3D printer heatbed easily installs into all 3D printers. Remove the adhesive backing and attach to your favorite build surface.

UL-recognized for your safety

We make our heat beds in the beautiful state of South Carolina.  Reaches 100 °C in ten minutes with most print surfaces. Reliably maintains temperature with all PID-enabled 3D printer controllers. Heated beds can carry a lot of power, which is dangerous without the right safety precautions. Our heat bed is a UL-recognized component up to 200 °C, because your safety is our number one priority.

The Calidum uses a 3M® adhesive surface and can stick to glass, copper, aluminum, PEI and more printing surfaces. Peel away the adhesive protective coating, place your build surface and stick it to the Calidum.

The Calidum is perfectly flat and has a thickness of only 0.033 inches (0.84 mm), making it an easy drop-in upgrade for most printers. Our heat bed uses much less space than silicone heating pads. No messy glues required for installation.

We know that all 3D printers are different, and everybody mounts their build plate in a unique way. The Calidum features four through-holes and four cut-away corners to support many mounting situations.

For three point leveling systems

Three point leveling systems are compatible with the four included through-holes.

For four point leveling systems

The cut-away corners give access to leveling screws on 3D printers with four point leveling systems.
