Introduction: All Metal Mega 3D Printer With All Acme Rods (Prusa I3 Base)
Work in Progress
Many parts will have to be hand made and drilled A good skill level is required to build and do the electrical.
I will be UPDATING these pages as I get time,
Step 1: Parts I Used for My 3D Printer Project
You may find better alternative parts, so feel free to use what ever you feel is better.
4 12 mm chrome rods 1000 mm cut to 955 mm (used on Y axis)
4 12 mm chrome rods 600 mm 2 cut to 554 mm (used on x axis) 2 left at 600 mm (used on z axis)
2 3/8-8, 4 start FAST 36" Acme threaded rod (used on X and Y axis) cut to 800 mm Y axis cut to 475 mm X axis
2 304004 Delrin AB-nut 3/8-8, 4 st acme .5"/rev CNC router leadscrew anti backlash (used for the 3/8-8, 4 start rod)
2 304008-3 3/8-12 x 36 inch(3 foot) Acme threaded rod (used for Z axis)
2 304006 Delrin AB-nut 3/8-12 acme .083"/rev CNC router leadscrew anti backlash (used for the 3/8-12, acme rod)
1 SHF16 16mm Linear Rod Rail Shaft Support ( used for mounting hot end )
1 24-380V 40A SSR-40 DA Solid State Relay PID Temperature Controller ( for the Heated bed)
1 NEMA 17 Stepper motors Sanyo Denki (For Bowden Extruder)
1 .125 1/8" AL Aluminum Sheet Plate 5052 18" x 18" ( to stick heat be too )
1 TEMCo 1/4 Inch 18"x18" 6061 Aluminum Tooling Flat Sheet Plate Bar Mill Stock (used to make Y bed frame)
3 2" x 2" Aluminum Angle x 1/8" Wall - 24" Long LOWES ( for ends of Y axis Frame) (for x axis plates (left and right)
1 3" x 1/8 thick flat bar ( for hot head mount)
2 AC110-220V TO DC 5V 12V 24V Switch Power Supply (used for Nema 23 Drivers)
1 AC110-220V TO DC 5V 12V 24V Switch Power Supply (used for powering RAMPS controller and accessories)
Theses or the stepper motor controllers I am currently running
But I also found and bought theses (after I had already ordered the above drivers)and have ready to upgrade to when I get time to mount and wire up, they had better reviews and also 1/32 stepping So you may want to invest in theses as they or only a few dollars more.
More parts list to come
Step 2: Some Pictures
More to come......
Laser burn Add On..
Rotary cutter Add On..
