Wanhao Duplicator I3 3D Printer – Switching to PEI as a Build Surface!

Please visit www.DIY3DTech.com for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be converting over to printing on PEI from the standard adhesive build sheets. However what is PEI you ask? Well PEI (Polyetherimide), also known as known as Ultem which is a reusable and “relatively maintenance free” build surface that can be used for both ABS (with a Heated Bed) and PLA (either warmed or cold) requiring no additional adhesives such as glue or tape. PEI is extra appealing due to its “no-surface-prep” conditions, which make it convenient to work with and printing on PEI typically requires no support rafts as parts adhere directly to the surface with no issue.

However it is suggested that after each print, wipe your PEI surface down with 70-91% Isopropyl alcohol, to ensure that you remove away any grease or other residues that may have accumulated on the surface which will help increase your surface adhesion greatly.

Wanhao Duplicator I3 3D Printer – Power Supply Issues and adding a switch!

Please visit www.DIY3DTech.com for more information on this and many other projects! As in this episode we will be doing a couple things, as I was having issues with my layer fan running (which I talk about near the end) and while I had the case open decided to add a switch for the LED light which I had added a while and connect it to the Wanhao power supply. However when I was doing this I noticed another issue with how they (i.e. Wanhao) has connected the hot-end, bed and electronics to the power supply which is the likely culprit in the hot-end stability issue. So grab a coffee, take a watch and let me know what you think.
