Howto: Glass Bed Upgrade for the Monoprice Maker Select v2

One of the most commonly recommended upgrades I’ve found (For all printers) is switching to a glass bed (Technically tempered Borosilicate). While it is not a hard nor expensive upgrade, it can be a bit time consuming. Since your bed is very important to the print process, this shouldn’t be something to rush, so I’d recommend at least two hours to complete (not including print time). Please note that the...


pfSense 2.3 is out and it’s Bootstrap’ing!
