Are you sure their 80W. 80w divided by 24 volts is 3.333333Amps.
I used a fluke 374 clamp meter in min/max mode to check current on the bed(6.5amps), LED's(0.3amps),dual cooling fans on the head(0.3amps)(I don't mean the 2 material cooling fans).one heating element of the hot end(1.7amps). If those blocks are 80w that over 10 amps. just for those 4 items. And that's not everthing at work. I didn't want to cut the cord on the expensive stock power source to check the overall current draw.
They made it so it can only work with the bed off since it uses 80W heaters.
Also that means now that I think of it, that it quite sucks (sorry creatr) if you try to print with one nozzle... Wow didn't occur to me until now.
Max power for 1 heating element + bed I think it's around 50W (without changing the power brick). I have a 280W powersupply that I used when trying to make a dualhotend system and with that I was able to heat x2 40W hotends. So, I don't see how creatr it's going to allow 1 print nozzle + bed without more mods or changing the heaters...Edited by Guest
