Maximus Bed Heater
(3) heated bed options are available for the Maximus kit (previously known as the Y-Axis Expansion). Note: All options require drilling a hole in the existing side panel (template provided in instructions) or purchasing the separately available Side Panel kit. For the enlarged heaters a 150W or greater power supply is also required, as well as an auxiliary relay as the control board is unable to handle the added power requirements of the heater.
Option 1 (Existing): The holes in the Maximus kit aluminum print bed allow the original bed to be mounted as a heater for the kit, and provide consistent surface temperatures over the middle of the larger bed. This kit provides thermal grease, screws and bolts for mounting the original bed as well as cable spiral wrap, and zip ties for routing the cables.
Option 2 (Enlarged): A full size heater is available for the Maximus kit providing consistent temperature across the entire bed area. This kit provides just the heater with leads and a 100k thermistor. Miscellaneous hardware is supplied by the user.
Option 3 (Enlarged with hardware): In addition to Option 2, this kit includes thermal grease, screws and bolts for mounting the heater as well as cable spiral wrap, and zip ties for routing the cables.
Note: All kits include installation instructions, please read them before beginning. Before beginning this modification, ensure that no parts require printing. Kits require the Cable Clip to be printed from: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2067600
