In short, Yes and Yes. An heated bed fights “warping” and “curling”. Warping occurs when the first couple of printed layers loses adhesion to the bed and starts bending away from the bed. This can cause the print to fail and in worse case scenario, the printed object can become loose before the print has finished.
Our heated bed is very unique and unlike other 3D printers. We use custom made industrial grade heaters.
This all depends on the operation of the printer by the user. It is not advisable to leave the machine unattended. An 3D printer is not a toy and children should not use the printer without proper guidance by an adult. Using the machine for other things than intended can possibly damage the printer irreversible. Stand clear from the heated bed and moving head during operation as the heated bed can reach temperatures up to 100 degrees and the extruder can reach temperatures up to 300 degrees!. If you wish to remove any filament sticking to the head, please use a plier.
When the printer is finished, please wait until the heated bed has cooled down before removing the product./accordion_item]
