Heated Bed upgrade installation.

Postby wearymicrobe » Thu Jan 28, 2016 12:00 pm

I received my heated bed upgrade for my series 1 3d printer. Physical installation was simple but is there something I need to do in the software to show CURA or the printer control that I have a heated bed so that it will activate when printing.

I did find a setting in the printer profile that allowed me to select the option that we do have a printed bed and I am receiving temp reading in that menu now. But I have no software control over the temp to test the bed currently.

Manually in the web interface:
"Temperature" tab > heated bed controls.
If you don't see heated bed controls, then can you tell me your serial number?

In Cura Type A 1.4.0:
"Expert" > "Switch to Expert Mode..." > "Basic Settings" tab > "Speed and Temperature" > "Bed Temperature (C)"

Serial number 2008. I still only have the head temp setting on the temperature tab. Everything is plugged in correctly. CURA settings changed.

Is there a raw gcode command that I can send to confirm that there is power to the bed and get ti to temp manually for a test.

I'm guessing you need to update the firmware... I know this is late so its completely possible you've done that by now.
