That, and the fact that they're constantly on Github.
Just want to say thanks for mentioning UDOO. For some odd reason I was totally unaware. Looks interesting.
If you want to get into an all metal dual geared (Bondtech style) setup as cheaply as possible that actually works, just needs a bit of your time and hardware, Ya can't beat this combo..https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073FCHJ6Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And.. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SY745CF/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And.. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077GRX256/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And..https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PHDMWQ4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I've several hundred hours on a couple of 'em without a single jam or problem of any sort. All metal and PLA don't normally play well together, in this setup, it's flawless. The only problem(s) with the extruder were the included spring sucked and I immediately became suspicious when it arrived partially assembled.They had a fully threaded screw riding directly on the micro sized needle bearings. Simple fix with a shouldered screw and a different spring. You could have a dozen of these complete setups for less than the cost of a single Mosquito/Bondtech deal that wouldn't produce any better results...
If you want to spend a bit more, this one is really nice. Just took it apart, cleaned and lubed and it's perfect. I also like the fact that it has cooling fins and a spot for a 30mm fan. Most of your problems will arise in the heatbreak area, so the cooler you can keep it the better off you are. And...With direct drive/filament control I normally run about 0.5mm retraction for flawless prints, no matter the material used..And, I'm fairly certain it actually weighs less than the SLA printed Bondtech to boot..https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07Y87G81X/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Here's a couple pics of my current CR-10 set
up..She'll eat whatever I throw at 'er w/out complaint..
get a prusa mini
$350.00 for a baby machine with a cantilevered X axis? You could easily build/better that for a C-Note..
be my guest, you are free to build whatever you want, I did
Aye. I have, and suspect I will again..
Looks good. Actually appears to be about 600mm in Z, but without reference can't really tell? Just not personally a fan of a moving print bed or ACME screws that long. Have you attempted a print using the entire height yet? Are the non-parallel belts causing issues?
Z is 1 meter, I have printed max to 850mm
I'll take your claim, show me your design, BOM and completed 7in cubed machine for $100
you could also show the other machines you have designed
I'll not. And I seriously doubt your 1 meter tall machine. It's obvious you've put a lot of time and effort into it though..BUT...Looks to me as though you've made a lot of basic engineering mistakes. Hope it works out for you.
The key to building cheap is buying used yet still serviceable and or discontinued/on sale parts. I've paid less than $50.00 for a "broken" Geeetech A10M and similar for an Ender 3 with a few missing bits. 3D printing is not as simple as the internet makes it seem and there are ltterally tons of machines out there that people simply gave up on after realizing it actually requires effort. Ya just have to find them, then you have an instant parts stash.
what do you doubt? and please price 46" long Hiwin rails
Geeetech A10M and similar for an Ender 3
both are SD card driven, not ethernet
keep in mind if you can't show at least a picture, it never happened in real life
Not really getting your point? I'm using "parts" from each and intend to run an SKR 32 bit board. It will run either SD card/wired or wireless via WiFi using Octoprint.
Already have shown pics, you just failed to look.
my needs are apparently much different than yours, so we will disagree due to these needs
Define "needs"? As in dropping $500.00 + on Haiwin rails? Seriously doubting you Sir. As in, you'll not "spend" your way out of that corner...
Could the two of you maybe start another thread to duke it out in?
Maybe @vcp can salvage something out of his thread.
lets just say that I have money to spend on whatever I want to and I would rather spend it on something that works and I don't have to work on it to get it to Work
Maybe you and I then...As in discuss this other than here. P.M. me please..
Love It! I've a few bridges for sale, contact me if you're interested.
You would absolutely love the response(s) the pic of your "build" got elsewhere. I'll send links if you wan't?
Put it this way; This was the general consensus..
Let’s try to be a little more civil here otherwise we’ll shut it. down.
