Heated Bed Printrbot Metal Plus

Postby Haskar » 2017-Jan-Mon-10-Jan

Hi,

unfortunately years(?) ago, I decided to buy a Printrbot Metal Plus without a heated bed. It worked for a while, but when I decided to buy the heated bed set it was no longer available. I still managed to get some parts in the spare parts section, but not all of them.

I think I finally got the rest of the items off other resellers and other markets and I wanted to start building the heated bed during the christmast days only to find out, that the instructions are gone.

Does anyone, maybe, still have a instructions-pdf of the heated bed kit for a printrbot metal plus?

Thank you :)

There are some instructions in the Printrbottalk Wiki (click on the red-beige-white box next to the "Search..." text box in the upper right corner of the screen). Here's a direct link into the Wiki that may help. http://www.printrbottalk.com/wiki/index ... d_Assembly

Try this link, PBHQ dumped all of their old docs onto a google drive:
https://printrbot.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/ ... on-Archive

I found a couple of PDFs for the heated bed upgrade here:

Hopefully this folder has what you need.
