We are back! After a week off because of Thanksgiving, we are back to updating our blog. We did a lot over the past 2 weeks, but we have encountered good news and bad news. 

After actually testing out the heating lamp, we've determined that it would not meet our requirement. Looking back at our simulation, it was apparent that the temperature of the bulb would need to be MUCH higher than we anticipated (more than any cheap/correct size bulb could ever produce)

So we are going to have to go with a heated bed through a Coil, because we KNOW it will work (because it works on other 3-D printers and is a known method for heating)


The 3-D printer works!
