Mini heated bed heating pattern...

Post by reddot » Mon Jul 02, 2018 3:06 pm

I'm troubleshooting some printing issues and am wondering if my bed is heating appropriately. I've attached an IR photo.

Thanks.

That looks pretty good. If you check out the video for our modular heat bed system you can see some video we took of heat readings on our stock beds vs our modular beds to compare your photo to. Here is a link to the video starting at the correct time stamp: https://youtu.be/wE6KoG3zKmI?t=61

One thing to keep in mind with thermal cameras, if the surface is reflective, it’s hard for it to get a good read off an item. I find with mine if I move it around areas that where dark suddenly show heat.
