Our custom-made kapton heater perfectly fits the MendelMax 1.5/2, Mendel Max 3 and MTW Create printers. It's flexible kapton material makes this heater a step-up over the traditional RepRap heated beds. It also heats up more rapidly, too. The thermistor comes pre-installed with a connector on the end for easy use. The dimensions for this heater also make it a good option for other popular 3D printers as well.
Heat spreader is optional, but highly recommended: these are quite difficult to use without some buffer between them and the glass. Without one, over repeated exposure you run the risk of shattering cheap glass on your printbed. We recommend only borosilicate glass for use with heated beds; the matching piece for this heater is Borosilicate Glass, 250 mm x 320 mm x 4 mm.
Please note the included heater requires a 24 V power supply rated for 8.5 A or more (we recommend a minimum of 10 A). Step-up adapters can be used but are not recommended.
