MK3 Heatbed Question


Recommended Posts

Posted · MK3 Heatbed Question

Hello Guys!

So I bought an el cheapo Heatbed, I'm assuming its a fake Reprap MK3 Heated as it was only £8.

The side that heats up also has the contacts to wire the cables in. This means that it will not sit flush to the underside of my 3mm Aluminium Bed. I was wondering if anybody else had had this issue, and found a way around it apart from cutting out a section for the contacts to sit through. Also wondered whether it would work upside down, or would this be extremely inefficient.

Cheers!

Sean.
