THE Printrbot by abdrumm Feb 4, 2012

Description

This is the real deal, no derivatives here. These are the real Printrbot in it's current version. I have a bunch of these printing all day, every day.... it works. It is expandable to larger widths and heights easier than any other reprap out there. Period. Its the most inexpensive bot out there being mass produced. And, its now yours to print, build, improve, change.... whatever you like. I can't wait to see what you do with it. I will post pics of all the various forms it takes, news, etc at printrbot.com
-enjoy

Someone knows if this printrbot is stable and print correctly because it s very light in weight

Hey if anyone knows where to get the electronic and heating stuff, basically the things you cant print if you could email me the URLs at [email protected]

SinfulSteampunk on Oct 27, 2013 said:

I've been looking everywhere, and this seems to be a dead post as far as I can tell because we can't even get the YBARBH file uploaded. Can someone point me in the direction of where to get the accurate rod sizes (both threaded and smooth) for the 8"x8" printrbot using Thing:17717 as my build platform? I've searched everywhere to no avail. Thanks in advance!

Node7Elec on Sep 22, 2013 said:

Can this be printed on a printrbot simple?

FuelCell250 on Oct 8, 2013 said:

The only part that will be a tight fit is the extruder body, but even that should fit just fine. If anyone wants black Printrbot parts, I'd be happy to print them a set on my Simple as a proof-of-concept.

FuelCell250 on Sep 14, 2013 said:

I've built this printer from scratch with these exact STLs... it's now an excellent, low-cost printer! Let me know if you need any assistance with it.

Sorry that I didn't see this sooner, but I'd be more than happy to print and ship you parts! Approximately where are you located?

Rovida on Apr 16, 2013 said:

I tried to print the E-body.stl part but it contain an hole and also the service of netfabb is not able to repair... anyone has a working version of this part?

MichaelAtOz on Apr 16, 2013 said:

Maybe try another slicer. It printed OK for me using Slic3r (a few versions ago).

daewootech on Feb 22, 2013 said:

is there a laser version of this, i can cut a majority of it out on my laser and buy the rest?

Techno35 on May 11, 2013 said:

I think they actually have the stl for the wood parts on printrbot's website

MichaelAtOz on Feb 22, 2013 said:

http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...
printrbot.com don't sell a collection of the non wood bits as far as I know, but individual stuff like motors controller, hotbed etc. You need rods and shafts from elsewhere, and nuts/bolts from hardware store.

allanonmage on Feb 10, 2013 said:

Does the big extruder included here work on the extruder for the Printrbot LC? It looks the same, but I want to double check.

MichaelAtOz on Feb 10, 2013 said:

Yep.

Canaboost on Dec 9, 2012 said:

I have looked at the instruction site and and can not find a material list for this printer for all non printed parts? It lists the BOMs for the Jr, Plus, and Laser Cut but not the original?

ironcladmvtm on Jan 30, 2013 said:

I am also looking for this i found the how to exploded diagram that has a list of parts but it a little dated and seems like you cant order some of those parts from printrbot.com anymore... here is the link to that diagram http://printrbot.com/wp-conten...
im digging around the printrbot forum to see if i can find some old posts with a better list

Juanajones on Oct 23, 2012 said:

What is the maxiumum size of the printed parts? i am trying to run a little bit of a kickstarter where i promise to give all the contributors the printer's printed parts (try to say that 10x quickly!) and i want to know if i can print another Printrbot jr from the first...

MichaelAtOz on Oct 31, 2012 said:

 The jr is laser cut wood, not printed.

Ssabens on Sep 26, 2012 said:

ESmgr1.stl (small extruder gear) is printing mirrored which will not mesh with E-Lg-gear.stl (large extruder gear). Is anyone else having this problem?

Japica on Sep 24, 2012 said:

If you need anything for a Printrbot, or would like a bigger Printrbot version, I sell them. My website does not have much listed on it, but you can check out my new Printrbot extended on eBay, or email me for info at [email protected] My new versions takes care of all the current issues with the Printrbot design, and I have been printing at 250 mm/s on the new extended version for the past week with no issues and high quality.

johnaa on Oct 1, 2012 said:

 Do you publish your updated version ? where to download ?

DFTBA on Sep 19, 2012 said:

So, what would I need to buy, in addition to these, to upgrade my printrbot jr to a printrbot?

FuelCell250 on Jun 30, 2013 said:

You'd need an extra stepper motor, a 6x6 heated bed, build platform, more smooth rod, and threaded rot (then a few small components). Doable, but personally, I think the Printrbot Jr is a newer, better design. You can even hack a 6x6 heated bed onto them, I've seen Brook Drumm do it himself!

For anyone who's been trying to build a Printrbot Original - I put together a build platform template for this Printrbot (6" x 6" build area) - check it out here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

piit79 on Sep 10, 2012 said:

Sorry, not really an answer to your question, but I highly recommend ditching the herringbone gears and using normal straight-tooth gears:

http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

There's no justification for using herringbone gears in this application (apart from looking kind of cool but I doubt that should be a priority :) ).

chaffeem on Aug 22, 2012 said:

Do you plan to sell a vitamins kit of non-printable parts? I would love to make a printrbot and I have access to a 3d printer but I'm not eager to search for all of the parts. I'm sure many other people would be interested in it as well because it would make it easier for people to replicate their machines.

MichaelAtOz on Aug 23, 2012 said:

I asked via email:

"At this time we are not planning on selling a vitamin kit, but it has been discussed as a future possibility."

So there is an opertunuty for an entrepreneur out there!
(10% off for me for the idea?)

I'm doing the "search for all of the parts" atm...
I"ll probably add sources on printrbottalk.com

Offline on Aug 16, 2012 said:

Where is the change log between V1, V2 and V3 ?!

One cant just upload, without telling the differences :-/

MichaelAtOz on Aug 23, 2012 said:

No, just go for the newest. Discuss at printrbottalk.com if you have difficulties.

logan on Jul 23, 2012 said:

Hey, does anyone know the source file and parameters for the extruder's herringbone gears?

MichaelAtOz on Jul 23, 2012 said:

They are here, ESmgr1.stl

I can't remember what I used, but basic-a-bit-beefy comes to mind. Slower is better.

Anonymous on Jul 25, 2012 said:

I called up Brook and got him to post the file. Looks like the it's uploaded as x-motor-v3.stl.

MichaelAtOz on Jun 5, 2012 said:

I just emailed prontrbot.com about it.

forana on Jun 5, 2012 said:

Has anyone managed to put one of the plastic kits together yet, and get it working? I've got it fully assembled mechanically, but not sure where 2 of the endstops / the thermocouple should be mounted, since that step's missing on youtube.

Aharn on Jun 10, 2012 said:

I had exactly this problem - I made up my own mount for z out of a SD card case and used the washer and zipties and bolts from the kit to mount it. This guesswork added some time to mybuild.

MichaelAtOz on Jun 5, 2012 said:

Yep.

You should try http://www.printrbottalk.com for community support. It's easier than here.
Thermocouple for hot bed is taped to bottom of hotbed toward the front of the cutout in the wooden bed. Picture on printrbottalk
Have a look on the printrbottalk re end stops and if needed post with a picture
re which ones and someone (or me) will help. It depends on what version of the parts you got.

farmerwal on Jun 3, 2012 said:

is it just me, or is Base-w-endstop-mnt.stl bigger then the version of the base sent out with the kickstarter.

I then thought the kickstarter one might be pb-Base.stl or V2, but neither of these seem to have the endstop mount. The kickstarter one i got does though.

Any ideas?

MichaelAtOz on Jun 4, 2012 said:

and there is always http://www.thingiverse.com/thi...

MichaelAtOz on Jun 4, 2012 said:

Are you saying bigger by looks of the image here? If so I agree, but clicking on the little blue box, and assuming the grid lines are on the 3D viewer are cm then they look very close. I assume the viewpoint of the image above is closer so it looks bigger in comparison.

But won't know until you load it or print it. I'll be doing that eventually, when I unbreak by hot-end.

k1nc41d on Jun 2, 2012 said:

THANKS, I love that I can print off spare parts for my printrbot. Came out perfect! Thanks.

MichaelAtOz on May 28, 2012 said:

How about the STL for pb-X-Carriage-w-Z-endstop.skp?

(if I get desperate I'll install Sketchup, but not in a hurry yet) :)

MichaelAtOz on Jun 4, 2012 said:

pb-X-Carriage-w-Z-endstop.STL and the others are available as ZIPs at http://www.printrbottalk.com/f...

MichaelAtOz on May 27, 2012 said:

Brook, its a PITA to download all these things, any chance of putting version collections in zip files?

ie your original collection of parts into pb-V1.zip, ALL the unchanged parts plus the new ones (or just to new ones?) into pb-V2.zip etc.

Either here or at Printrbot.com.

It would be a godsend.

Now that I've got most bugs ironed out I'm going to start replicating soon :)

FuelCell250 on Jun 15, 2012 said:

Yes please! Moving the V2's out would be great, I just printed off a large V1 part on accident. So much wasted plastic!

MichaelAtOz on May 27, 2012 said:

ps Thanks for the other parts, extruder etc.

jmr_alexva on May 16, 2012 said:

Hi I am trying to finish my Kickstarter printrbot and I am finding that some printed parts are smaller than they should be. Right now, I am trying to fix the large toothed wheel that has a hex shaped hole for the head of the machine screw. Well the hole is significantly smaller than the head of the screw. Should I try to carve out the material of the hole or print a new part? (I got a Cupcake) If print, is the part available? thanks, Jose Rodriguez

jmr_alexva on May 16, 2012 said:

Just after writing this comment, I saw the suggestion below to use http://www.thingiverse.com/thi... but I still have the question: why do some parts seem to be smaller than they should?

thejollygrimreaper on May 14, 2012 said:

i would go back to the V1 for the x motor mount, with the version here it is very difficult to mount all four screws to hold the motor on there simply isn't enough room

bstott on May 12, 2012 said:

I am watching the build videos. GREAT! I've got early parts printed. Where are the small additions to glue/screw attach to make version one version 2? *DONT_KNOW*

PaulRac on Apr 16, 2012 said:

Is the bill of material missing some screws? I don't see anything that would be used to attach the extruder motor to the extruder. It should be an M3, but 8mm is too short and 16mm is too long. I noticed it because I got my "reprapper kit" from kickstarter and am putting it together. There is nothing included that works to attach that stepper motor.

vaiomike on Apr 16, 2012 said:

Paul -

I got my kit as well, but haven't got the extruder printed yet. Which one did you use? Might you be able to link me? I'll check to see if I'm missing parts as soon as I have he extruder and gears printed.

Pawl on Apr 13, 2012 said:

Another version of the y-bearing holder would be helpful for people who are using manufactured pulleys. The pulleys which will fit need to be smaller than .9" and pulleys with those specs can be relatively expensive.

TheGrum on May 12, 2012 said:

What size would they need to be for your pulleys? Can you provide a link to the pulleys you would use?

Bellorophon on Apr 6, 2012 said:

Do you sell the heated build platform?

Pawl on Mar 25, 2012 said:

Brook,

I've been wondering how you guys are tightening the bottom two bolts on the x-motor. It's a hard bolt to access. Do you guys use a special tool?

PaulRac on Apr 17, 2012 said:

I see what you mean now. I got them most of the way down by hand and then kinda forced an allen wrench in there for the last bit of tightening.

PaulRac on Mar 28, 2012 said:

What kind of screws are you using? An allen wrench should fit in there if you use socket head cap screws.

Phoenixblack on Mar 6, 2012 said:

any chance that you will be posting the files for the laser cut or printrbot+?

although not technically reprap, i still love the design and want to try it out with clear or coloured acrylic.

PaulRac on Mar 6, 2012 said:

On the kickstarter comments Brook said he is going to release the laser cut files when he starts shipping those units. There are still minor modifications being made to them as he gets all the production parts in.

Pawl on Mar 1, 2012 said:

It would be nice if the bearing guide 1/4" to 1/2" taller. Currently the belt has to go at an upward angle to attach to the clamps. This might cause the belt to rub against the top of the bearing guide.

Pawl on Mar 1, 2012 said:

Here's a picture of how it lines up with the bearing guide is 1/4" taller.

Anonymous on Mar 1, 2012 said:

Okay, now I'm getting impatient, can't wait to get my hands on plastic parts now!

If only the LC plans were available, then I could at least do something!

Nice job Brook

Hi, you can sign up for our waiting list for news about when the store will open, discounts, and more at http://eepurl.com/inyPw

Concerning rod lengths and the laser cut print bed: Since we are waiting for delivery of the 6x6 heated beds, we are forced to use the 8x8s on the bot farm. It is a really tight squeeze and we can't print on the full area - only about 6x7. The 6x6 will allow us to make the laser cut wood print bed much more narrow and even move the sides in to more closely resemble the original pictures of the Printrbot. I will post our laser cut print bed versions for both the 6x6 and the 8x8 configurations, including all the rod lengths that should accompany them. Essentially, this will amount to the original Printrbot and a plastic version of the Printrbot+Plus

peace,

Brook

droftarts on Feb 21, 2012 said:

Hi Brook, congratulations on the success!

I'm printing one of the plates out, and notice that the shoulder in the nut trap on the x-motor and x-idler brackets that the nut sits on is painfully thin. The x-axis is supported by these, and I measure the shoulder at a mere 0.8mm on the x-idler - just two layers at 0.4mm layer height. It's a l
ittle thicker on x-motor, but still only 1.3mm thick. It is the same on the new v2 files. Please consider making the shoulder a bit deeper; I wouldn't want to push down on the x-axis too hard for fear of breaking this.

Also, there was a mention in this blog back in November http://blog.reprap.org/2
011/11/around-reprap-community-11062011.html that Neil Underwood was converting your Sketchup files to Openscad. Has work progressed on this? If not, I would be interested in helping out with the conversion.

droftarts on Feb 22, 2012 said:

I printed out a Printrbot, put it together and have started printing another!

Does this mean I win the competition for laser cut parts you talk about in the latest video?!

BenVarghese on Feb 21, 2012 said:

Hey Brook, could you upload the dxf files for your lasercut version of the printer?

Thanks!

"OVER 8000 TOTAL DOWNLOADS!!" I see only 500-850 on the left side.

PaulRac on Feb 21, 2012 said:

Add them all up and it is over 8000. He didn't say "8000 sets" downloaded, just 8000 total downloads.

Pawl on Feb 21, 2012 said:

Another (hopefully final) correction:

Smooth rods should be:
2 - 10 1/4" or 260mm (z bars)
4 - 13 3/16" or 335mm (y bars for 214mm sq heated bed and x bars for 305mm base)

gazorp on Feb 20, 2012 said:

Thanks so much for the picture and information! Can you please confirm which size Heated bed this would accomodate? It looks like you put in the 214mm Prusa plate (~8in).

gazorp on Feb 18, 2012 said:

Can anyone help make a rod cut list for different size printrbots? I would like to make one to support the standard size 8" heated bed.

I think it would also be nice to have a cut list for the 6" heated bed.

Pawl on Feb 21, 2012 said:

smooth rod:

4 - 335mm (y and x axis, for 214mm sq printed bed)

2 - 250mm (z axis)

threaded rod:
2 - 200mm (z axis)
4 - 305mm (base)

abdrumm on Feb 12, 2012 said:

I think I can help ;). The store will be online soon. After seeing the parts for sale for $90 elsewhere, I will be celebrating our store opening with $49 all-plastic kits. I will give it a shot for 30 days at least. I am working to get the price even lower - the dream is $25 for a set of plastic parts. Someday!

I found it very difficult to insert the screws that fix the x-axis motor. Only hex-headed screws seemed to fit after some Dremel work on the plastic part.

Is there any trick I am missing?

Will the pieces that make up the extruder head by uploaded as well, or are they are standard part? If so where...?

Hello everybody,

I want to ask if you have any suggestions where can I buy the smooth rods? Preferably somwhere in Czech Republic or nearby.

More importantly, how many mm of rod is needed? How long are each of the rods supposed to be? I can't find the answer anywhere

Thank you and best regards...

Anonymous on Feb 7, 2012 said:

Thanks for the list. A couple more things are needed to be able to print all the files. What kind of belt is it? XL, MXL, T5, T2.5, other? And belt width? Someone mentioned Greg's accessible extruder parts, but what hot end mount does it need?

Hank-Cowdog on Mar 6, 2012 said:

We used T5 belt, 6mm width and corresponding pulleys. Works OK. Plan to upgrade to GT2 belt and commercial pulleys for less lash/better accuracy.

Thank you abdrumm from Spain! :)

badger on Feb 6, 2012 said:

Hi Brook,

will you release the design of the electronics as well?

I'd like to build the printrbot including the electronics myself. :)

(The only thing I don't think enough self confident to build is the extruder so far. But maybe even that can be possible if some part can be bought.)

abdrumm on Feb 6, 2012 said:

I just uploaded my assembly - Red really stands out. It is not complete with hot end yet. And its missing some fasteners... but its a good start. I even cleared up a few lines and put the correct size bars on there.

MadRa88it on Feb 6, 2012 said:

Awesome! This looks great, can't wait to build some bolts.

ccotter247 on Feb 5, 2012 said:

It uses LM8UU's for all of the axis. The z-bearings are friction fit.

Pawl on Feb 5, 2012 said:

I'm curious what is holding the Z axis LM8UU bushings in place, maybe it's just a tight fit?

It would be kinda cool to see the x rods cut into the LM8UU holes and lock the bushings into place. They would need to be a few mm further apart for that

misan on Feb 8, 2012 said:

I assume zip ties are used to hold the bearings.

I am missing the motor pulleys among the parts you've uploaded. Are the same than the prusa?

casainho on Feb 5, 2012 said:

Thank you for sharing.

I prefer the version from whosawhatsis (RepRap Wallace) because it's parametric and designed with the OpenSource software OpenSCAD.

I already printed and built my version of Wallace and were important for the possibility to choose different rod sizes and motors on the parametric files...

Hey Brook!

I downloaded only the skp files and imported them into sketchup 8. All were fine except pb-x-Motor.skp. It gave an error message. I loaded it into a text editor and found it's not a skp file it's an STL! Imports fine as an stl but oops I wanted all the skp files! I scaled it by 1/25.4 and it seems to be right but only you know for sure.

This is gerat, Brook. Can't wait for the laser cut + files... I've got my laser all primed and ready for them. :-)

As a backer I am proud to see them released to the wild. Nice one Brook.

The upload speeds from Mexico must be good :)

Congratulations Brook, you have my Ideal Job :)

Best wishes for all the 3D printer craziness.

Note that it's very important to get precision ground, hardened rods that fix the bearings with zero slop. Otherwise, you'll end up with a lot of wobble and a bad experience overall.

This should be all the printed parts necessary?:

2 - pb-Base.stl

1 - pb-Y-BarEnd-x4.stl

1 - pb-Y-Bearing-Gu...stl

1- pb-BeltClip-x2.stl

1 - pb-X-Idler.stl

1 - pb-X-Motor.stl

1 - pb-X-Carriage.stl

1 - pb-Xtruder-Mount.stl

+ Greg's accessible extruder parts

+ Nophead's coupling

The things which are on the end of the smooth rods are the Y-BarEnd right? The designs look different than what's in this picture: https://secure.flickr.com/phot...

Very NICE.

I have been looking forward to seeing this. Congratulations on the highly successful kickstarter!

Sure thing. Thanks. Hope you enjoy... now to round up all my instructions and make all that presentable.

Take care,

Brook
