Printer Update – Heated Bed

Its finally here! The Ultimaker heated bed for the U1.
First impressions is really nice! new ball screw and stepper motor for the z axis. Really easy assembling guides on-line.
Updated to the new firmware and as I hoped it got the fast moving set-up phase as he U2 have. It also have the 3 pint levelling system, much easier.

Had to try the warping resistance of this new bed so i printed this nice Hellboy bust for my dear friends 40th birthday. Practically no warping at all!!

All in all, well done Ultimaker!
