Cartesian Printer – Updated Heatbed

 

Newly updated heatbed

Changes:

  • Increased size of heatbed area from 310mm x 240mm to 300mm to 300mm
  • Bed is supported at corners
  • Went from 3 point to 4 point leveling. Reasons for this are: Less wobble of the bed, Geometric constraints, more efficient design, easier access for manual leveling
  • Went from Kapton to silicon heatbed. Wattage has been upped from 240w to 300w. The 480w power supply can handle this. The reason for going for a silicon heat matt is that it can be “stuck” with adhesive to the underside of the borosilicate glass plate
  • And like the previous heat bed a cable chain mount is standard
