It has been some time since I posted something but i’m really busy since this is my final year of school. I have been busy for school but of course also making things! Currently i’m working on my new 3d printer, a prusa mendel and some other small projects like this one.
I do have a Ultimaker and thought I wanted to try out a heated bed because I have some trouble on bigger prints, warping etc. so I thought about it and took a standard 100x160mm pcb and designed a pattern in eagle to mill and make a heated plate/bed. I couldn’t find a heated bed designed these dimensions (since this is a standard pcb size?) Also, I could buy a heated bed, and maybe I will buy it for my mendel, but for now I just wanted to try it out. (more…)
