Hello everybody,

Unfortunately I dropped and broke the glass plate that comes with the printer and I cant find a replacement in the arduino store. Does anyone know where I can get one from?

Thanks in advance,
Nuno.

The plate is made with borosilicate glass, "PYREX" as most oven proof glass. Amazon sells that type of glass see:  http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=borosilicate+glass+3d+printer&tag=googhydr-20&index=industrial&hvadid=59872948382&hvpos=1s2&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4456112520009408321&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&hvdev=c&ref=pd_sl_1tv8rnvhcb_b

just look on the internet for many solutions, however, I have been thinking that a thin ceramic tile could be cut to fit the platform which in my case can be purchased at many hardware store for a couple of dollars.
