Heated bed thermistor
April 29, 2012 01:56PM
The thermistor for my heated bed is the pigtail type. Its apparent use is to monitor the glass plate temperature.

My question is how do you mount the thermister to the red heated board? I used muffler cement for the resistors and thermistors in my extruder hot end. I would expect this is OK on heated bed too, and that the glass part should be flush with the surface.

Comments would be appreciated.

I've used fire cement which is similar to muffler cement. It worked for a while but it didn't bond very well and came off after a couple weeks. I now just put it under my kapton. If you have glass over heat bed I would put the thermistor on the glass with some kapton to get an acurate temp of what the print will be subject to.
