Yes, I glued it directly to bottom side of bed (there was some sort of plastic on it).

I used hobby glue from Pattex, nothing very special.

Be careful, at these temps, you will risk deforming your extruder carriage if it's made out of PLA. better print it out of ABS as soon as you can, or upgrade to Felix 3.0

I taped white insulation underneath the bed, something like polyurethane used for packaging transformers that were sent to me, got to 104 degrees celsius with 70 percent of the bed covered.

I have a v3 felix so no problem for the extruder carriage, although I don't get why the extruder carriage would suffer from 100 degrees at the print bed when de extruder goed up to 250 and more...?

My bed temperature does not go above 90C too. I already tried insulation with felt or foam rubber.
Without insulation i got 84C (after 10 Minutes), with insulation 93C (84 after 10 min, 93 after 45 min!).
Any suggestions? Wrong material? Electronics-Problem? inssuficient power?)

BTW, i own a felix 3.0

tia.

I too have a Felix 3.0, but I can get it to 100 degrees no problem.

What's your ambient temperature? I work in my office around 21 degrees celcius. An enclosure will make it even easier to get it up to temp!

I just did a test, I got 106.x° after 1h!
I usually use 100° for ABS which take @20-30 minutes depending on room tempeature.
Room temperature was 24.

Anyhow, this is with isulation so the standard specs are fare away. More 'power' needed!

Room Temperature was abt. 20-21. I thought about an enclosure too and collected some parts.
But first i would like to finish the migration to E3D-Dualhead with E3D-mount printed with ABS.
More power - i will try an PC Power supply.

just finished my conversion to a single E3D with Satours E3D v6 mount, and I installed a proximity sensor for Z-homing, just need to figure out how that's going to work!

I glued it straight to the bed using some Pattex hobby glue (nothing special).
