How do you find out if the server power supplies are able to be tied together or not? Is there a master list somewhere, or are they all doable?

did you print this using PLA?? Wondering if the temperature of the PSU will be sufficient using PLA.

No, I printed in hatchbox ABS. I'd be a bit worried about heat if printed in PLA since this is right under the heated bed. Plus the system burns quite a bit more power when running from 24V than the stock 12V, so the power supplies themselves get a bit warm as well.

Heated beds should be insulated. 24v should be more efficient than 12v so less heat output.

Insulation is not perfect and PLA softens quite easily. The supplies are very efficient and don't seem to waste much power as heat regardless, so the ~600W heater an couple inches away is more of a concern than the supplies themselves. The rostock printers insulation is a single sheet of 1/4 melamine board. I've since upgraded and built a better machine with ceramic fiber insulation under the bed.
