About the print platform
« on: November 25, 2012, 06:01:14 AM »
I had just attended a robotics ordeal with my FRC team not too long ago. At this ordeal was a company advertising their printer. Something the guy had mentioned was the platform and heating it. I didnt notice if the Bukobot comes with a heating pad. Also, where would a good place to look for a larger one for when I expand? For both the platform AND pad.

Thanks.

Diego

The Bukobot Vanilla & Duo have heated platforms (the "Green" ones don't) and mainly used for ABS plastic. The folks at qu-bd.com have a 12" heating pad that may work for expansion until we create something that big.

My understanding is that Roy from Panucatt is also working on a Helios 12" heated pad.
