Heated Chamber for Ultimaker

Recommended Posts

Posted · Heated Chamber for Ultimaker

A few days ago I finished my project enclosing my Ultimaker with an acrylic heat chamber for stabilized temperatures when printing with ABS. It's a great addition and it works like I charm, though I have to admit a heat bed still is more important for ABS. If you print in PLA you don't need any of these upgrades. You also don't need a heat chamber when printing small ABS parts, but for *big* ones it truly helps.

You can see the project on my thingiverse page.

    Yep--for big ones, here's what I do:


    I've often thought about installing an "X/Y bellows" to keep my AD595 TC amplifier in cold air, but it's handled the heat so far and it's probably easier to just solder a new SOIC amp on the board when it burns out!
