Thank you @skarab

As for the screws in the right XZ holder to avoid Z rod warping, why did you decided to not have them in the final setup?

cheers
Miguel

Hi All,

I have just started my build of iTopie in India. I have started a blog to document this : [n00bmaker.blogspot.in]. I would love to hear from you guys.

This will be my 3rd reprap, 1) Prusa Rework (bought as a kit) 2) Cyclone PCB Factory and now 3) iTopie. Considering I bought my first 3d printer in 4 months ago, I think I have gotten addicted to this very time consuming activity smiling bouncing smiley.

But anyways, wish me luck and thank you skarab for the brilliant design.

Hi kaustubh,
Super, I expect to see more.

By the way I see one foot is missing on the photo from the CNC shop.


Peace.

Hi skarab,

I just went n picked up the frame, all parts are there, no missing foot. Also, I had an extra frame cut to help those who want to make an itopie and don't have access to a CNC. So, anyone in India, just ping me and I can deliver you the frame.

Will reach out with more updates on the build.

I have finished my iTopie build and I am very happy that I chose this printer over others. I just love how much more rigid it is than my old 8mm acrylic frame Prusa.

I have written 3 blogs on the following themes:
1. Why iTopie?
2. Building the frame
3. Final assembly of the printer

I have tried not to repeat too much of what is there on the already very good build wiki. I have mainly highlighted where I differ from the build and what parts/tools I used.

Thank you skarab for the awesome design.

I wanted to know at what speeds have you used your iTopie and what is your preferred speed. I detect some resonance and vibrations when I print at slow speeds like 30mm/s.

Non printing moves : 150mm/s
Perimeters and Infill : 60mm/s - 80/mms
Small perimeters : 15mm/s - 30mm/s

Acceleration : 2000 mm/second/second

Hi everyone,

I've build an itpoie machine from scratch many thanks to author/s great documentation page everything fits well and sharp, its easy to build even for first printer like me =D

But I think I've a problem in X axis my carriage have a lot of vibration make a lot of awful noise and the vibration are filled in the nozzle. I'm using drive A4988 in ramps I've tune the drive.

Is anyone else who has had this problem? What we can done to solve or minimize this?

Thanks in advance

I'm truly impressed with the designs of Lautr3k and iTopie. For me 2020 rails are really hard to find at a reasonable price, unless buying a lot, but then customs fees and taxes can kill the pricing.

So I want the speed and quietness of v-slot and wheels, and the low price point of MDF. I think I will set out to build iTopie with 2020 v-slot instead of round shafts and linear bearings.

Thanks for sharing your designs, and providing inspiration to the community!
