Hi all, I have broken my X end motor mount, and cant print a replacement (not that I was able to print one before I broke it but more on that in my other thread)
I'm after someone to print me both X ends from the Prusa i3 rework (the ones with the split bearing holders not the fully open ones) I may also need the matching bearing idler for the X belt and a new X carriage, get in touch and we can discuss.
I have the following extruder [www.thingiverse.com] which uses 30mm spacing for the x carriage mounting holes. the above X carriage should fit, the one I have at the moment has the Zip ties (designed for a nut and bolt instead of zipties but that will still cause it to split) sit out behind the bearings rather than wrapping around the bearings which leaves room for play.
Ah, sorry, looks like I put the wrong one (someone remixed the i3Rework and I got that link by mistake, work blocked reprap forums yesterday so I attempted to grab it from my history)
My printer's working pretty well at the moment,so I'd be happy to help out.However,again only PLA..
So if i understand correctly,you need the X carriage,X end idler,and X end motor V2?
Any colour preference?I have white ,red,green,and purple.
PM me if you'd like me to do them.
@ AgentX,I have a spare server power supply,around 60A,and from memory about 700w.
You could have it for $30,as you helped me out with printed parts when i needed it
The portability of the briefcase printer is really great. It is continually evolving and improving all the time. I still use the steel framed machine pretty regularly - whenever I want to do large stuff or ABS. It is hard to beat the heatbed for big footprint PLA parts.
Next on the list for the briefcase printer is to convert it to toothed belt drive and banish slipping fishing line forever. I am also planning to do some large cutouts on the base board to make the whole thing lighter to carry and to allow for some essential tool storage to be built in (3D printed of course). I have recently fitted a TinyOLED display controller with micro SD card reader so the display is much more discrete. There are still a few issues to resolve with that but it is a big improvement over the massive reprapdiscount graphic LCD controller I had on it originally.
Good luck with your machine - I look forward to the success stories.
