Another few pieces of the puzzle arrived, managed to assemble them together and get a little glimpse of the whole picture .) As previously, I’m amazed at the quality of the laser prints – SLS is an amazing piece of technology.
I have already added some of them on my Thingiverse page to download, rest will be added later today.
And here they are:
both X axis ends, one with stepper motor mount.
Z axis module, lower stepper mount, upper smooth rod mount, and an X-end in the middle
X axis assembled with short smooth rod – just for testing purpose
After a few days I can get back to you with some updates. I managed to create two parts from scratch – but they are still compatible with Nutz95 design. I have uploaded them to Thingiverse here. What feature I’m most proud of is designing part mount around aluminium extrusions. I have added 8 mm rectangular pins, fitting 30x30x8 mm aluminium extrusions row holes (which are actually 8,2 wide)
I’ve found a nice way to embed 3D models on the website. You can check it out by clicking on ‘Read more’ on the bottom of the post.
By the way, this here is work of Infill3D, found here on thingiverse. I admire creations of this guy, first one to make not only functional parts, but pretty aswell. I think I will add his extruder to my setup, we’ll see how it goes:
