How can you bed heat up to 100degC? Do you use an enclosure?

Try insulating the bottom surface of the bed.

Various solutions have been used, ranging from cardboard, ironing board pad, etc, etc.

Personally I would be cautious using cardboard, and opted for aluminium foil tape instead as these are typically rated for 120 or more degrees Celsius (with the added bonus being one of the the lightest options).

Most tapes have an adhesive backing so simply stick on as many layers as needed to improve insulation. As it stands my configuration can just reach 100 degrees, and I recall guys reaching over 105 degrees with other materials.

Cheers,
