    DIY Heated Build plate for my Z18, First ABS benchy results

    Hello everyone, I just wanted to show off the results of my heated build plate project for the Z18. I'm finally able to print raftless, and with ABS on this previously troublesome printer. This was my first attempt and I think it came out well.

    There are other modifications besides the new build plate, they were done to the smart extruder+, like I have a bi-metal heat break and a volcano nozzle in this extruder as well as a modification to the filament path, but I'm pretty sure it was the build plate that was all that was needed to get this print to work. The other modifications deal with specific reliability problems encountered in the past. The pictures don't really do it justice, it's a nice print, especially the shiny bottom, that was done on a sheet of PEI.
