To replace the Kapton® polyimide tape on the AON-M2 low-temperature build plate, refer to Replace Kapton® Polyimide Tape.
The procedure that follows gives the instructions on how to resurface the AON-M2 High-Temperature Build Plate. To resurface the High-Temperature Build Plate, the build plate surface is prepared with different sandpaper grits to help with the part(s) adhesion. A flat and rough build surface will help improve the print quality.
Estimated time: 60 minutes
The High-Temperature Build Plate is resurfaced when:
The High-Temperature Build Plate is made from a Polyetherimide (PEI) plate mounted on an aluminum base plate.

Make sure that there are no prints on the build surface. Remove print(s) before the procedure that follows is started. Failure to do so can cause a collision and cause damage to the machine component(s).
Wait until all the machine components are at room temperature before you continue. Some machine components can be hot if the machine was recently used. Failure to do so can cause injuries.
Use the shop vacuum cleaner frequently to collect the PEI dust that is made from sanding the build plate surface. This will help contain the PEI dust.
Do not sand the PEI surface too much. There is 1 mm (0.04 inches) of extra material on the PEI surface. Stop sanding the PEI surface when the 0.039 inch (1 mm) is removed. The removal of too much material can cause damages to the PEI surface. If too much material is removed, a new High-Temperature Build Plate will need to be purchased.
Do not put too much pressure on the orbital sander when the build plate surface is being corrected. Too much pressure on the orbital sander:
• Can make the build plate surface too hot and cause an uneven print surface.
• Can remove material from the build plate at a faster rate which can cause damage to the build plate surface.
