Greetings from the PNW

Post by waynebuilt » Mon Jan 23, 2017 8:06 pm

Got my V3 over the holidays, diy kit. Build went without hitch, hot end working just fine, heated bed not so well, after trouble shooting with tech we determined the bed was defective, second bed was received, works much better but still not warming up to my desired temp 100c.

Welcome, perhaps print on something other than glass to make it so printing on a 75degree bed is ok? That or go 24v on the bed.

FYI, there's zero reason to need 100C on a heated bed.

Well I'm printing xt-cf20 so there is a need for higher bed temps. I got the HB dialed in, holding 100c with some pid tuning.

Welcome fellow PNW'ener! I have insulated my bed with foam and now doing the 24v to the bed. The bad part of the foam is that it is hard to keep cool enough for TPU to stick. I wish that I had just done the 24v, but, I can scrape the foam out

I insulated mine with reflective insulation, heats up much faster than stock but at last test I couldn't get anywhere near 100 with any fans running.

Hello, fellow PNW'er! I'm also new to the club, but my V3 is working a treat so far. Enjoy and congrats!

At some point, we should really get together and have a PNW rmax gathering...

I agree, I could always use an excuse to head to the other side of the mountains besides to refill on korean food in tacoma.
