Numbers on textured sheet: what are they?
I have two textured steel sheets. One says TF-25 on the top-right corner and the other one is TF-26. Is this some kind of versioning, and what are the differences? They were both bought for the same price on the e-shop.
Mine says WA-15.
If I had to guess, I would speculate that WA is the code for the manufacturer or supplier and 15 is the batch or lot number.
Also, it's apparent that I got one of the 'good' ones, from the complaints of some who swear there is no way they can get theirs to work as expected.
The newer ones have a different texture: the old ones has larger gaps between bumps on the sheet, but the new ones have small gaps between them.
That depends on what filament you are printing.
I like the new ones with finer texture as it looks better on smaller finished parts.
The textured plate for my Mini has even finer surface structure, but no "build number". I would really like that for my MK3s.
I mostly prints in PETG.
