    I took a crack at making a heated bed texture for Prusa Slicer (and possibly other slicers). It's only for illustrative purposes since we cannot print directly on the buildplate. But I think it looks cool, and could be useful for positioning parts for printing..

    You can load the PNG Texture and an STL of the Buildplate in Prusa Slicer at, "Printer settings - General - Bed shape - Set"

    Included in the ZIP folder is a PNG + the original SVG if you want to modify it. I also included an STL and STEP model of the buildplate.

    (I designed this in inkscape; Prusa Slicer would only load the PNG properly, SVG had missing images...)

    In the printer profile, I set my bed dimensions set to 315mm x 215.5mm (Measured directly from the HT bed). This way, the white lines in the texture have the appropriate spacing (1cm).

    Mine only works if you have the 240VAC heated bed though :)

    Love it! Thanks. These are great.

    @Joe Pomo I noticed that your texture has a typo (Coulours instead of Colours)

    Thanks for catching that! I attached a corrected version to my original post.
