Posted · What is the best Peek upgrade

What kind of printer do you have?  You need to:

 

Get a heated bed that can go up to 160C (simple enough - add a supplemental heater and let the built in heater regulate the temp)

Air temp needs to be 65C so you need to enclose the printer

Servos need to be cooled (65C will destroy servos, 40C is safe)

Nozzle needs to be able to get to 400C (this is maybe the easiest part usually as there are so many hot ends for sale out there to choose from).  Teflon melts before 400C so you need an all metal hot end.  Which won't work with PLA (can't use PLA with all metal hot ends).
