Heated bed replacement

Recommended Posts

Posted · Heated bed replacement

I have the ultimaker 2 and needed to replace the bed due to a temp sensor error. I got the hb212 bed replacement. Are there instructions for it's replacement anywhere?

Seems a bit different to the current one I have.

    Hi @eileenmake, can you elaborate on what printer you have and what information you are looking for? Are you unsure about one specific step of installing a heated bed or are you completely clueless where to even start?

    Hey @SandervG ! I'm working with an Ultimaker 2 Extended and am a little bit clueless to be honest! As you can see from the pictures below, hb13 (the original bed) and hb212 (the replacement) have different connectors for the wires. I had actually expected the new bed to come with wires. Do I need to order new ones? Can I connect the old wires to the new bed somehow?

    Hi @eileenmake, yea those are 2 different versions. You are probably better off ordering the new cable too that goes along with it. With the new cable you should be able to connect it very easily without soldering. The partnumber of the cable is: 1183. 


    Hope this helps!
