Re: Prusa style vs CoreXY

I bought 10mm for X and Y and 12mm for the Z. I did a few cuts on the extrusions so I could fit them in my vehicle, but the shortest is still over 6ft (1.8M). Google hasn't found me much for CoreXY's that use 3030, besides ones using linear rails or v-slot. I'll look at the entire hypercube evo par...

Re: Prusa style vs CoreXY

Do you have other suggestions for a CoreXY that uses 3030 extrusion for the frame? I've already ordered everything for a 300x300x500 Hypercube Evo w/ 'dual Z' (but was going to drive w/ a single motor to keep synced). I cant remember what size ground rod he uses for the evo is it 10mm or 12mm for t...

Re: Thoughts about the MK3

I suspect that the decision to stick with RAMBo (albeit a new version) is because of the investment they have in their marlin fork. To change architecture would mean starting again with a new firmware base and that might lose some of their competitive advantage. They are not using the rambo on the ...

Re: Thoughts about the MK3

I like the look of the changes in part they are playing catch up to a lot of the most common mods made to 3d printers in the Serious DIY market. Which is a good thing. I think everyone needs protection against running out of filament. Its certain helps prevent against having to check printers so muc...

Re: Prusa style vs CoreXY

I would avoid the HyperCube Design if you can for a larger format printer. Even the Hypercube Evo which is stronger has the same flaw that the Hypercube has. Let me explain, the X axis design for the hyper cube is a clone of the Prusa's X axis. The problem is that it doesnt get support in the same w...

Re: Prusa style vs CoreXY

I just kind of automatically assume lately that most of the posts about building printers are often by people that have never used one. As theres a large percentage lately that this is true for. A large number of the people that are experienced with 3d printing seem to already understand alot of the...

Re: Prusa style vs CoreXY

I think one of the important things you need to think about is how big of a print volume you want, and how fast you want to print. I personally have never been a fan of the Prusa style design. Now Josef and others have Done amazing work to minimize the flaws of it and create great prints. But Moving...

Re: Playing with Bearing free Axis's on a printer (UHMW plastic)

How about putting the tape on the slots? I actually tried that. I been trying to get my office cleaned up enough to do some filming to make a video about this experiment. Cause I have learned a ton and I want to pass the information along to everyone Working with and playing with printer designs. I...

Re: Playing with Bearing free Axis's on a printer (UHMW plastic)

Update 9/2/2017 part 1 I made a mistake with the design (again), I forgot to stagger the idlers on the Y axis to make up for the loop of the belt that hits the servos. A new design was made to save time and parts to keep track of I extended the arms out and added a second set of screw holes. I added...

Re: Delta Auto leveling

Its like a buildtak or pei ontop of glass right? if so and you have been printing ABS or something with an very high bond to the surface, you might be distorting the build surface. I know for a fact BuildTak will pull away from borosilicate glass, resulting i bumps in the surface causing leveling is...
