MK3 Aluminium heatbed 240x214cm

Image

Please note that the Aluminium heatbed can have some marks or minor scratches, but it will only be of cosmetic character and will not affect the use adversely.
Heatbed with 3mm aluminum core. The metallic side is the top print side and the black side is the bottom side.

Dual power supply. Operate at 12 Volt or 24 Volt. (Is possible to run on 15 Volt also on the 12V operation setup.)

There is no mounting holes on this heatbed. However if you need some you have the ability to drill some yourself.

Solder pads for multiple wires (ribbon cable) or a SMD pinhead connector can be mounted. Pads for SMD thermistor 1206 in the center of the plate.

•Dimensions 240mm x 214mm
•Resistance at 12 Volt setting is around 1,5 Ohm
•Resistance at 24 Volt setting is around 2,6 Ohm

@svdv have made a very useful PDF file for "dummies" installing the heatbed. You find it at (v3.0 Download)

If you want to use my frame solution for the heatbed you find the design among my other designs on thingiverse (Link)

I have ordered 10 custom sized Alu MK3 heatbeds as a test for the K8400. 3 mm thick, black and with dual power support without drill holes. Will arrive in about a week we hope. Going to be interesting to see the result of that test:)

Anyone interested in a plate if it turn out as i hope for?

:) Eero... The endstops works like a charm stil :) Have had alot of good use for them. Am going to continue my pet project with PVA. The sugestion with lemon oil/juice sounds interesting to try for that even thow your sugestion was for PLA and so on. Is fun tinkering and testing and trying things out ;)

Got everything mounted but i am having a issue with the power expander. The input is 24V and when i set a temp in the firmware it gives 15V to the signal port. But the output port still remain 0V for some reason. I have emailed reprap.me to get some feedback on it. Did however get the dhl invoice finally. So now i just need to get that darn power expander to work as it is supposed to. Somewhat enoying ;)
