LED Lights

2 comments

We're currently looking into the possibility of the LED strip lights creating shorts with the metal frame and therefore recommend that in the meantime people avoid installing it until we're sure if this is a universal problem or not.

I know you guys are working through a lot. Thanks for everything you've done so far!

 

I just wanted to ask if you had any updates to this particular problem.

LED Lights Update/Warning

 

We are recommending that people do not install the LED lights as the exposed copper traces are in some cases causing shorts on the frame. If you absolutely still want to install them, make sure to cover the copper traces along the strip before installing. We're also going to be removing the LED lights from future kits.

  • Some of the print platforms that were shipped were unfortunately slightly warped making larger prints difficult to stick. It would also make the fibreglass heated bed hard to stick to it also.  We've been working on a solution and have now released a new and improved platform that combines the heater element and platform into one 3mm aluminium bed.   Besides just being flatter, there is better heat distribution to the edges and to the steel Flexplate. The steel Flexplate also grips better to the new  platform (less likely to slip) and the magnets also perform better. There’s also no need for the springs any more, it just fixes straight  onto the stand-offs. It also runs at a higher wattage and heats up quicker too. � � Aluminium Heated Print Platform � � Unfortunately we're not be able to offer it as a free replacement but we are making it available at essentially a cost price. It's now available for pre-order (until 26th May) for £20. We're hoping to start sending them out on the 10th of June. RRP after the pre-order window will be £36. Tracked shipping: UK Shipping: £2.99 EU Shipping: £8.99 International Shipping: £11.99 Further note on shippping: The size/weight heated platform (0.65KG) on it’s own just fits into our first shipping bracket, any extra item will tip the shipping into the next bracket. If you order anything else we would still ship everything together with the new platform around the 10th of June.
