Machine tools and related stuff.
I replaced the broken thermocouple in my MP Select Mini 3D Printer this weekend, and it’s back up and running again! Here’s how I did it.
I’ve measured the resistance vs. temperature of the thermistor in my MP Select Mini 3D printer. It looks like the thermistors that I speculatively ordered don’t have the exact same temperature curve, but they may be close enough to use my printer with a manual adjustment of the temperature set points to compensate for sensor error.
