Since we’ve got another printer working, it makes sense to make some fixes to correct the minor problems with the SD3 printer. It’s built like a tank, but needs some TLC to fix up a few items that prevent it from being a better printer.
The rough list of things I plan on doing, not particularly in any order:
- Replace the heated bed heating pad.
- Replace the controller board.
- Add an LCD and control buttons to the controller.
- Replace the hot end and thermistor.
As I fix one thing, the next needed repair will become obvious. I’ll add sub-pages to this one as work slowly proceeds.
