I later read on a forum (I've forgotten which one), that the printed replacement part will break as it could not possibly be as strong as the original one. That did had some truth to it...
This is a dummy model of Arcol.hu Hot-end v3.0 to get a feeling of the actual size. A real hot-end cant be printed using plastic:)
I was quite excited about my new prototype. Interested in my findings?
After I built my heated bed controller, it was time to create a PCB for it. Especially, because people had trouble to build the controller.
Warning: long article ahead!
As almost all my previous buyer built a heated bed controller, and at least Bogdan have built one, nophead is using his brain controller to handle the heated bed temperature. So there left no choice, but build my own;-)
It took me more time then I thought, but finally, I built my improved heated bed.
The initial test shows, the bed's temperature can go up to 164.3C, which is pretty hot:-)
(on the picture it only shows 148.7C, but it is because I already disconnected the transformers from
mains, so it already cooled for about 3-5mins.)
