Posted · UMO Heatbed Upgrade

Planning to add a heatbed on my UMO. The official one's price is a bit steep for my liking.

Wondering if a third party upgrade would work.

Anyone who did a third party heat bed upgrade have some good recommendations?

Is this a good one to get. How's the installation? Plug and play or needs some mods

to the board and firmware?

Hi,

This is the heated pcb only, you need more parts, powersupply,the actual aluminium bed, linear bearings, leveling scews,springs,glass plate, glass clips, etc

There are threads here with people doing unofficial heated bed upgrades, try search.

On another note, I have the official heated bed kit, and lot of these kits have problems, the connections on the pcb are bad and lots of people get temperature problems.

I did resolder the pcb and the connector just to have it fail again after a few weeks, I ended up doing like its done on the pcb you found on ebay, direct solder the wires to the pcb, so I would atleast recommend this heated bed pcb, the rest you need to DIY or buy more unofficial clone parts.

example, the aluminium bed : http://www.robotdigg.com/product/1015/UM2-aluminum-machined-base-plate

Might want to search the ebay user 3Dheatbeds. It's a great source for heatbeds with different sizes & configurations. Worked for me in the past.
