I am looking at a used Mini at a local auction house. I’m not able to hook it up to test anything, but I was able to inspect it and found the print bed has a gouge. I assume this is from dragging the nozzle against the bed. The gouge is probably a couple of paper thicknesses deep and reveals a purple color material underneath.
Is it likely this would cause problems with the heater functioning? If the heater still works, could I place a sheet of PEI over this and use as-is or is there a way to repair this?
Thanks for any input. Hoping to get into 3D printing soon.
