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
Some time ago I posted a render of the 623zz pulley – a tiny pulley to guide GT2 timing belt. I was aware of the dimensions of the part (well, I designed it to have certain dimensions to fit around 623zz bearing, right?) and this is how render looked:
Anyway, even with me knowing how small the part was – it’s amazing how tiny it is when I received it printed. I hope it will work well, we’ll see… Take a look at it in real world:
And last picture – standing on a small coin for comparison:
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)
