Now you have a perfectly applied sheet of Kapton with no bubbles underneath, however it is not ready for use yet.

When the bed is heated, any residual moisture under the tape will boil, creating bubbles of water vapor. To prevent this, we need to thoroughly dry your build plate before use.

Install it back on the printer, and turn on the bed heater to low heat (60-70 °C).

Let the build plate bake for an hour.
