Thanks - Looks like I ordered the wrong heat bed. It is 40x40, but only 350 watts, 24V. Can you send me a link to the heat bed you are using?
Could you link to some photos showing the bed detail? I am curious about your method to attach a heat element to the V40 - do you mount it on the bottom of the aluminum bed plate or do you use glass for the bed surface? Do you have manual adjusters for the bed or just use auto bed leveling?
Ahhh, nevermind. I just found the explanation that the firmware will first probe the distance from the extruder to the bed in several places and then compensate the z position based on the xy location to maintain a uniform distance from the bed.
So, it is not truly auto bed leveling as it says in the description, it is auto zeroing of the Z position. The bed must be made completely level using manual adjustments first, correct?Also, did you finish the drawings for the dual head extruder and mods for 12mm rods? I'd be interested in printing those parts too. Thanks!
