Introduction: RepRap EMaker Huxley Build
Step 1: Day 1: Frame, Heatbed
The frame is constructed from threaded rod and printed ABS vertexes, in the traditional RepRap fashion.
The heatbed uses a shorted-out length of nichrome wire as the heating element. This has proven unreliable and I'm considering upgrading to a PCB heatbed.
Step 2: Day 2: Extruder, Circuit Board
Step 3: Day 3: Wiring
I have since rewired the machine and replaced numerous components. I also put the Sanguinololu PCB in a ventilated enclosure, which is mounted to the side of the Huxley.
I highly recommend that you mount the circuit board before you ever cut a wire. It would have made this step a hell of a lot easier.
Step 4: Print!
This is my first successful print, made with PLA. It's pink because I was marking the filament with a pink sharpie to monitor the feed system.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
