    I read your article about the multi head printer. I have a better solution for the temperature control.

    Basically you get a cheap $15 industrial temperature controller with a k type thermocouple.

    They have auto PID tuning, and really cntrol the temp much better than the thermistor machines.

    I use them in my liquid cooled hot ends to run polycarbonate at 305c. Marlin has a issue with thermocouples and 2 years ago there was not much other option unlike now with the Smoothieboard, and Fastbot BBP boards that handle thermocouple inputs direct without a adapter board.

    You will have to make a new heater block with a m6 thread or learn how to make your own that will fit in the thermistor mount. (I make my own)



    If I try that again I will defiantly go that route. Thanks for the info. That was more of a show and tell to change the way people saw the machine. I was trying to prove it is easy to make it whatever you want.
