Print-Rite DIY 3D Printer – Heat Table (200 x 200mm)
This Heated Table (or bed) is a must for your existing Print-Rite DIY 3D Printer as it helps to improve the quality of your printing when using ABS, PC, and other high temp filaments. It is easy to assemble and fits straight into the print bed.

This heated bed comes with no instructions at all but its pretty straight forward with out instructions. I havent tried this yet as I need to wire it up to my power supply but I'll revise this when I get some time on it.
I suggest wiring in a toggle switch or some sort of on/off switch that is near the temperature controller so you have something to shut it off quick if need be.
It would be nice if the binder clips that are included were smaller, they take up a lot of room, I'll replace mine with smaller ones.
It also would be nice if a larger power supply came with it, or maybe have the option for one.
Again, I'll revise this once I have some use on this.Im sure this thing would work great if there any instructions or if it included all the necessary parts to install it. Irritated.Update on this heater bed:
The heater bed wasn't heating up all the time. I ended up removing the connector to the heater and checking the continuity of the wires going to the plug and found that the thin power wire to the plug was not fitted correctly and wasn't making contact.
So check the continuity of all wires to the plug from the controller board when you get your heater bed.Heater bed draws a maximum of 63 watts on my tests and can only be heated to a maximum of about 110c.
The duration of the heating will not last for the duration of long printouts. The time is not known yet, but will update later.
I've got a 250 watt power supply powering both the heater bed and the printer without any problems, so far.
