Printrbot simple done on Shapeoko

Post by rocnik » Sat Feb 07, 2015 1:29 pm

Hi,

I started making my first 3D printer. I downloaded plans for Printrbot Simple 1405 from http://www.youmagine.com.
Do not know how will it end but for now it looks good and all parts fits pretty well. It requires small amount of hand filing around corners.
Still waiting some parts to arrive like hot end and autoleveling probe.
Electronic part should be Arduino Mega 2560 + Ramps 1.4
Material is 6mm plywood
Tool is 0.8mm

Few photos now, more in the future.

Nicely done. Do you plan on ordering the kit from printrbot or are you piecing the rest of it together yourself?

I do not plan to order a kit from printrbot. Most of the stuff I had lying around including stepper motors and drivers, rods, belts, pulleys, arduino.. When I assembled my Shapeoko I ordered few spare parts.
For this project I ordered just threaded rod, linear bearings, extruder gear, auto-leveling probe and ramps board.

Some new photos below.

Did you cut the parts out on a stock shapeoko?
No longer have a Shapeoko, but use a machine of my own design...

Very, very cool.

It raises the question --- what 3D printer design would be best suited to production on a stock Shapeoko? What are the synergies which are possible between:

- buying / making a Shapeoko
- using it to make a 3D printer
- upgrading the Shapeoko w/ 3D printed parts

I've been considering making a Tantillus once I get my Ordbot commissioned...

rocnik - how's it working? I think it's awesome to have cut out all the structural parts using a shapeoko. The amount of zip ties in this design worries me though. Any issues with parts wiggling around?
Shapeoko2 #3702:
DW611, arduino uno, gshield v5, NEMA23's on X & dual Y, NEMA17 on Z with ACME rod, 9mm belts, Mean Well NES-350-24V power supply, re-inforced gantry rails.
Soon to have inventables spindle mount and 1M X axis.

the bearings have a ridge on either end, which i assume the cable ties is nestled in. This should reduce the wiggle possibility drastically.

Looks great, an Ordbot was one of my first shapeoko project 2 years ago. Something like the printrbot looks like a great choice since such a large percentage of parts can be produced on the shapeoko.

Hi,

Small update. I received right hot end just a week ago so it took a while from last post.
Printrbort is finished but it needs some upgrades. Zip ties are not best choice for connecting parts together. Probably will do something like printrbot jr. which has bearing sandwiched between plywood parts.
In beginning there wasn`t too much swinging on y/z axis but after some time and few disassembly of y/z axis swinging is more pronounced. Especially when you put stepper and extruder on end of axis. So I did bowden extruder.
Had bunch of problems like clogging hot end at heat break, leaking filament between heat break and heat block, lifting corners... but for now they are all solved except swinging at higher z values.
