    Anyone using the 18" X 18" Monster Heatbed MK1 PCB?

    I can't speak to the amps required for it to run but I can speak to the LEDs if it is based of the MK1 specifications on the reprap wiki. The LEDs are entirely optional, they are only there as passthroughs not essential to the circuit. They are there to tell you when the bed is on and hot, as a...

    Pre-purchase questions:

    1) Not for PLA, it is almost one for ABS because without it base layer warping will be very hard to overcome. 2)The Acrylic bed is sanded and as such has excellent adhesion without anything on the bed. 3)The Printer's calibration is covered in the manual at the end...

    What filaments can you print with.

    It is truly a matter of preference, both will put out great looking prints. The .5 will put down more plastic than the .35. The .35 allows for finer control at the cost of print speed. If you are planning on making things for aquariums they will be of a reasonable size so a .5 may be of more...
