Fixing sad busted wires Monoprice Mp Select Mini 3D printer V2
My print bed was no longer heating up and prints were always shifting and moving mid print since their base was not sticking properly. A quick google search led me to reddit (www.reddit.com/r/MPSelectMiniOwners/comments/5txszk/bed_not_heating/) and I got to work. There are 4 wires going to the bed, two heat the bed, and two power the thermometer (is what reddit thinks). The wires can kink, bend, and eventually fail so I did a quick fix that got it working again for now. For such a cheap 3D printer I knew something would break eventually!
10) The test print is working so far. I need to buy some replacement BuildTak for the bed but this "paper stuff" I got from the Media and Design teacher is working ok for now and easy to pull off and replace when it wears out.
