Metal Fisher.

I spent good hours to cleaning up and reaming all the holes of metal parts. Aluminum seemed not to have clean edge by laser cut and there were outstanding dimension inaccuracy around 0.1 mm to 0.2 mm. I spent several hours on the effector plates alone.



Things to do:

- Relocate the extruder to outside of panel
- Replace diagonal arms with rod end bearings and carbon or aluminum rods.
- Soldering the end stop switches?

We seem to be doing similar things. Here are my panels with extruder access hole and modified end stop mounts for screws: [forums.reprap.org]

And here's an (untested) idea for traxxas rod end rods: [forums.reprap.org]

Please double, triple check M665 command before you upload it.
DWC doesn't report missing variable error of M665 and set the Cartesian mode not Delta implictly when it reboots.

Modifications:

- double spring
I cut a ball point pen's spring half, inserted in the stock string. Spring reinforcement almost removed slack of print bed and
print bed works like a on/off switch.


- non-conductive print bed


- vibration damper
1 mm thickness of rubber reduces noise and vibration of the stepper motors.
I adjusted position of three pulleys 1 mm off.


- temporary extruder drive

under powered, shallow throat breaks PLA filament as the filament gets steeper towards end of spool.
Continuous printing when the filament is broken is tricky. I'll replace it with Fisher 1's geared extruder.


Parts for Fisher 1's geared extruder drive
It uses two MR93ZZ bearing (9 mm diameter) which I don't have in stock. Hopefully I'll get it today.


It has layer shift problem I really like to get rid of it.






To do:

- fine tuning
- two sets of polycarbonate diagonal arms.
- stock core parts for spare: thermistor, hotend set.
- Print models as much as I can so that I'll find which parts need to be replaced in regular base.
If it runs 300 hours without any mechanical failure, I definitely build two more big Fishers and use them as production machines. ^^

Check that the lower pulley is set vertically below the idler, about 1.5 - 2 mm away from the stepper motor.

I would suspect that that the life of the acrylic rods could be somewhat lengthened by not tightening the screws fully home, just sufficiently so to retain a decent grip on the ball bearings along with a drop of oil.

Neil.

Installed B'struder



Kysan Nema 17 5.18:1 geared stepper motor
I had to change wire orders of the extruder for Kysan stepper motor.

Wiring diagram I referenced.







Fisher mount I designed
[www.thingiverse.com]

B'struder extruder
[www.thingiverse.com]

Tension spring that works good.
Specification:
Length: 30.00 mm
Outer diameter: 10.00 mm
Wire thickness: 1.30 mm



@Neil

Thans for the tip.

I'm tempted to build one of these B'Struders, but I cannot find the springs anywhere. Did you find a source for those springs?
