My print bed mods - Bed and Temps

Post by mrgibbon » Mon Dec 28, 2015 12:36 pm

Hi All, thought I would pass on my experiences with my Mini.

Firstly I'm using a glass print bed. One of these, slides right in, and although slightly longer, it hasn't caused an issue for me, just centre it on the platform.

Im yet to figure out the best way to setup for raftless printing, I need a guide!

I have also added an 80 degree thermistor to help with bed temps, this seems to be doing a great job along with some blue painters tape.
Next mod will be a 60/80/100 degree switch for all print types.

This has helped enormously with my ABS prints, Im going to delve into PLA now and see if I can actually get my first print happening. (Clunk clunk clunk etc)

Cheers

Stefan

Glass bed looks pretty good.

What temps are you getting compared with the stock perf board?
