Max Bed temperature UM original with heatedbed upgrade.

Posted · Max Bed temperature UM original with heatedbed upgrade.

Hello,

I was wondering if the electronics can break when I heat my bed to the max temperature of 185 Celsius.

Or if anything else can go wrong if I let it be at this temperature for a couple of minutes.

Greetings,

Jeroen

    It will be tough to get it that hot! It's only 100 Watts I think. But I'm guessing it will be okay. Certainly the temp sensor can handle that. The circuit board should be okay because it can handle molten lead which is more like 250C or 300C. Glass can handle that. Metal can handle that. I suspect it will be fine except without the air temperature being 90C I don't think you can get it that hot with only 100 watts.

    But if something breaks you won't be covered by warranty! I would go for it and if anything breaks fix it.

    Keep in mind the servos can't handle that kind of heat either so move the servos outside the printer (very easy and requires no hardware - not even an extra screw - but requires software change to reverse direction). I forget the max operating temp of the servos but they are okay with 40C air temp. 90C air temp is too much. I forget if 80C is the max allowed air temp or the max allowed servo temp.

    You will need good insulation to get it that hot! Plus maybe a second heater. Don't let the second heater get the electronics hot though! Insulate the bottom of the printer as well!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
