I had the heated bed mounted to my printer MacGyver style, using clamps to mount the bed to the frame and bulldog clips to hold the glass to the bed. See the photo's. It made the printer look cheap, and I could not wire up the heated bed because its connections were clamped to the printer frame. These adapters solve all the problems above. With these adapters, you can wire up the heated bed, and the printer instantaneously looks 500€ more expensive. Especially when you also print the Kossel XL 2020 corner dust covers :-)
The parts you need
- 3x heated bed adapter (one with space for the wires)
- 3x heated bed adapter cap
- Kossel XL
- Round heated bed with ears for Delta Rostock / Reprap Ø 265 mm
- Glass plate Ø 260 mm
- 6x M3, 8 mm screws
- 6x M3 nut
- 12x M4, 12 mm countersunk screws
- 6x M4 nut
- 6x M4 (hammer) T-nut
Solder a thermistor to the heated bed and fixate it with kapton tape. Wire up the heated bed and thermistor to the electronics of your printer.
Place the M3 and M4 nuts in the adapters. Mount the heated bed to the adapters using the M3 bolts. Mount the heated bed with the adapters to the printer frame using the M4 bolts and (hammer) T-nuts. Mount the glass plate using the adapter caps and M4 nuts.
Note: the pile of parts in the last photo were created during the prototyping process.
If you only use the heated bed for PLA (recommend bed temperature 20-35C) you could use PLA, otherwise I recommend using PETG or ABS for the adapters.
Calibrate you printer before usage! Remember that your bed is lifted around 5 mm.
