NOTES:

  1. This Chapter covers printers supplied with a heated print-bed. If you bought a kit without a heated bed, please see the preceding Chapter 18A.
  2. If you followed our suggestion at the end of Chapter 17, you will already have fitted the heated bed, but not screwed it down. We suggest you leave it like this until after Section 1904 in case you encounter any issues with the electronics, then return and complete this Chapter before starting 1905 Calibration.

1801 Printbed - Parts required

Printbed Glass

Glass mirror plate 180mm diameter x 4mm thick.

Bulldog clips

3 x 19mm bulldog clips for attaching print glasses to the heat-bed.

1802 Screw down heated bed

Fit the M3x14 countersunk screws and tighten up  until you feel the printbed firmly in contact with the mounts. Do not overtighten as you may strip the threads tapped into the printed parts.

If you have not already done so, fit the M3x14 countersunk screws supplied with the heated bed and tighten them up  until you feel the printbed firmly in contact with the mounts. Do not overtighten as you may strip the threads tapped into the printed parts.

1802 Install Printbed

Clip the glass mirror plate onto the aluminium heated bed with the bulldog clips provided.
