3D Printer running on
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Design
The first step was to decide about the general mechanics and mechanism inside.
My 3D is modular as everything is screwed together there fore it can be transferred to something else if I want to.
It' running on Cartesian movement method( as seen in the photos) and on v-slot Extruded aluminum rails.
Some specification of my printer:
- Modular: Can be dismantled
- Runs on Cartesian coordinates
- Runs on open source electronics and software
Step 2: Electronics
This 3D printer runs with Arduino Uno, Ramps 1.4 shield and Marlin Firmware. Also equipped with:
- Heating Bed
- Nema17 stepper motors
- A4988 Drivers for Ramps
- Nozzle Fan
- Board fan
At the moment working on wireless connection
Step 3: Assembly
All structure and fittings are done with the Openbuilds parts.In Aistralia sold via Makerstore
Step 4: Firmware Tweaking
I needed to tweak Marlin to my printer setting. Updating Feed rate, Hot end fan, bed size
Step 5: Slicing and Printing
having built the printer the last step is to make the printer talk to the slicer in my case Cura.
Step 6: Upgrades
I had several nozzle clogging with MK-8 Extruder. therefore decided to add a new one with standalone heat sink and fan. Had to reduce the hot end temperature to 220°C and now it runs good.
The part being printed is in ABS.
