SMD LED/Resistor package for Heatbed
August 05, 2016 04:15PM
So I've been looking through various site, wikis and other websites selling the heat bed PCBs looking for some information. What package size are the LEDs supposed to be for each of the various heat beds? I've seen 0402, 0603, 0805, and 1208/1210 as far as LED sizes for surface mount, but what are the MK(1/2/3)(a/b) PCBs designed to use? The only thing I've seen on one website it stated the MK2b Dual Power has increased pad sizes for 1208 surface mount components, but neglects to mention if this is for all the components, just the resistors, just the LEDs, and is it all MK2b boards or just the one's they're selling.

I have my MK3 mounted upside down, so I can't see the pads.

Generally speaking, a small LED will fit easier on a bigger pad than vice versa. So get parts with 0603 or 0805 footprint to be on the safe side.
