I rebuilt the heated build platform on my MakerGear Prusa Mendel. I’ve been having problems with it ‘eating’ glass. I didn’t recess the thermistor enough, so the glass would try to ‘bend’ over it, and break.
These are 3D stereoscopic images. You can look at them crossed eyed and get the full effect. You can click for a larger view as well.
All in all, I am pretty happy with these modifications. I should get a bit more print height. It looks cooler, and maybe I will turn the printer on again soon and start printing again!
The next serious modification will be a water cooling block for the nozzle. I’ve an idea for that…
