The Prusa Titan concept was first introduced by the company named BluePrinted.com.au on October 8 2014, however to this day the company did not publish the blueprint’s for the build of the large Prusa i3 3D printer.

Because i found the concept very interesting i took the liberty of sharing my version called Mega Prusa i3 Rework. The Mega Prusa i3 rework is basically an enlarged version of the Prusa i3 Rework. Is is scaled up from the original design. To be more precise, the Mega Prusa i3 Rewrk is scaled um in order to allow 8 times the build volume of the Prusa i3 Rework, a stunning 400x400x400mm.

The Aluminium Heat Bed

Fist i tried to connect 4 heat-beds together but eventually found a more cost efficient way to do it using resistors.
The Heat bed is made from a 450x450x3mm aluminum plate. It has 4 10W resistors 4.7 Ohm in parallel connected to the Ramps D8 connector.
Each resistor has 2 holes for fixating on the plate using screws.

Instructions:
– Tap 4mm threaded screw holes in the aluminum plate (for fixating the resistors)
– Fixate the resistors in place using M4 bolts
– Connect all 4 resistors in Parallel
