  1. Hello,

    I just finished setup my own heated bed using an 6mm aluminium plate and the common reprap PCB heating plate.

    Before, I tried also the glass one, but it didn't heated that well.

    Now, it works well. But I found it rather difficult to choose all the parts and to find store to get them, specially the correct aluminium plate.

    Now I would be interested to help other getting their own heated bed.

    For that, a good solution would to sell a kit containing:

    * The aluminium plate with all holes done for Ultimaker

    * The PCB heater

    * A 30A car relay

    * All the cables

    * The small parts (diodes, resistors, thermistor, etc...)

    * Optionally, everything soldered together

    In other words, everything except the 30A 12V power supply that you can find everywhere.

    My question: How much would you willing to pay for that kit?


  2. Bonjour,

    Je n'ai pas encore essayé d'imprimer avec d'autres matières que le PLA et l'ABS. Avec une Ultimaker standard, pour moi, seul le PLA s'imprime bien. L'ABS nécessite une base chauffante sinon les bords se rebiffent (warping).

    Je ne suis pas sûr que le PLA supporte bien l'humidité, Lorsque je l'ai commandé, il a été livré dans un sachet avec un dessiccant.

    Question bruit, je trouve l'impression relativement bruyante (il faut pas dormir à côté... :-)

    Bonne chance,
