That was a long time without any signs of life!

Last batch of the printed parts

I bet y’all thought I dropped the project! But no. An unfortunate turn of events didn’t allow me to work on the printer since last update – but not anymore.

Few last parts arrived some time ago, they were X axis carriage, and all printed elements for Y axis: smooth rod mounts, stepper and pulley holders.

And here they are!

I will add all of the stl files to my thingiverse page tomorrow for download.

Another few pieces of the puzzle

All the pieces

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:

X-axis

both X axis ends, one with stepper motor mount.

Z-axis

Z axis module, lower stepper mount, upper smooth rod mount, and an X-end in the middle

X-axis assemble

X axis assembled with short smooth rod – just for testing purpose

All the pieces

All the toys
