Quick Overview

Heatbed MK1 


Printing on a cold surface just doesn't work. We've tried, and so have thousands of other RepRap builders. ABS simply does not stick well to cold glass/acrylic/tape. Prusa's MK1 Heatbed is the popular solution (yes, from the same guy who designed the "Prusa" Mendel).


The MK1 is easy to install: Solder two 12AWG wires to the MK1 and connect to your DC power supply. The board naturally pulls about 7-10A and heats to the stable temperature of 110C within minutes. You are responsible for obtaining and installing all wiring and mounting equipment as required by your specific RepRap.

    "PCB Heatbed MK1" Specifications:
    • Etched from copper clad
    • Manufactured from exact CAD files created by Josef Prusa
      (except we updated the broken URL on the PCB)
    • Size: 214x214mm
    NOTE: Large PCBs are flexible and may not be perfectly flat. As Prusa points out in his blog, this isn't an issue. The MK1 takes on the flatness of the glass once it's mounted to your RepRap.  :-)
     
    Why doesn't Maker Farm sale the MK2 Heat Bed?
     
    Most people think that the MK2 is the Sucessor of the MK1, but the MK2 is actually a Concurrent design to the MK1.  The MK2 has through hole mounting for wires and themistors where the MK1 uses surface mounting for them, because of the through hole design the MK2 often has issues with heat not being even across the heat bed, because of this flaw in the MK2 design we use the MK1 Heat Bed.
