    Wanted: Heated Bed with stand-alone controller. DIY?

    First post here

    I have a Tinkerine Ditto Pro that doesn?t have a heated bed. Would like to add one but don?t believe there is any way to tie into the hardware of the printer.
    I see there are 12 and 24v heated beds available from many sources but having a hard time figuring out a combination of power supply and hopefully a digital voltage/temperature controller to power it. Push buttons or dial...digital readout ideally

    A parts list would be awesome if someone could help.... or just buy a printer that comes with a heated bed?

    Thanks in advance!

    Holy crap $1899 !
    And no heated bed.
    They saw you coming.
    Anyway - have a look at the motherboard, could well be bed connectors already there.

    well it's a $10 board setup - should still have heated bed connectors.

    Well they appear to have a version of Marlin 1.1.07 on the bottom of the page. However saw no source code listed.
    If you request they may give you the Marlin source Code. Looking at your power supply below do not believe you have enough power supply for a Heated Bed.

    Power Input AC 110-220V, 50-60 Hz
    Power Output DC 12V, 15A

    They do however sell 110V Optional 3.4/6.8A 750W Silicone Heated Bed Heating Pad + LCD Thermostat For 3D Printers

    Thanks for the replies...
    Yeah not a cheap printer but I didn?t buy it new (3months old). No heated bed option but it doesn’t sound like it voids the crappy warranty if I install one.
    Could you share a link to what a heated bed connector would look like? Of course IF it could supply enough power?

    That 3.4/6.8A heating pad with LCD on reprap looks to be exactly what I need thanks! Now to just find the LCD/ thermostat component separate to save a few bucks and solder it myself....

    show us what it looks like when you get it setup.

    bed connectors are usually upright green wire connectors with 'bed' printed on the board somewhere nearby.
