Adding heated bed to printrbot simple metal.

Hi, could I buy a heated bed from printrbot.com and just run the wires to the printrboard and attach the heated bed on top of the metal bed? (so the heated bed is what the plastic sticks to instead of the metal with tape? simple metal model.

Yes you can, though I put mine under the aluminum build plate. The heater deforms too easily and wont give you a flat build surface.

what if I was to put a glass build plate on top? Also on an unrelated note, my prints with my black PLA gstar come out wavy on the bottom and get better near the top? Could this be temperature related? I am at 208 (printrbot suggested)?

I am looking at getting a custom heatbed made that will line up with current holes. Then machining/stripping the powder coat off the current bed. Then you could mount it under without adhesive and such. I have my simple 1405 xl done that way and it works like a champ.

Or i might wait till mach comes out with batch 2 of his xy upgrade.

I couldn't get my Z sensor to work properly with glass. It would run the nozzle into the glass before it detected the aluminum bed below. There all all kinds of work arounds.

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!!! Printrbot released their new heated bed for printrbot simple metal. It completely replaces the old bed! BUT, they only have it in black which makes absolutely NO SENSE at all.

Give it time. They are probably just trying to get it out faster i am sure they will offer the other colors soon after.
