Updated bed cardboard insulator
« on: March 26, 2014, 04:20:19 AM »
Hi, I was just reading through the updated manual, and I saw that there is a design for the cardboard insulator now.  (Mine just came with a blank square)  My bed heats up dramatically more in the middle than at the corners, and I suspect you have mitigated this problem with the holes that allow the bed/thermistor to cool more in the center.

Can somebody post the file for this?  I can cut out my own, but it would be nice to make it 'official' while I'm doing it.

No laser here, but I can throw it on the CNC and it should come out alright.

Thanks,
Dan

Got it, thanks. The file you sent came out the wrong size for me, but I had plenty of cardboard so I scaled it up and cut again.

Works great. I do think the bed heat is more even now.
