Kühling's x-ends for MendelMax 1.5 by tommyc Apr 10, 2012

Description

Modified version of jonaskuehling's x-ends for use with LM10UU/LM10LUU and 10mm z-rod.

I am marking this as work in progress because I haven't mounted this into my mendelmax yet.

Uploaded v1.1 and no longer WIP.

Hello, is it possible to change the lm10uu to lm8uu diameter over a parameter? Or who can i do this?

What % of infill do you use?, and do you use support?
Thanks!

The openscad is generating just one screw for bushings and it is on the wrong side. Perhaps you uploaded an older version? Thanks for sharing

Instructions

There are 2 variants of these x-ends uploaded, the misumi leadscrew and normal M8. Print the ones you needed.

These x-ends takes either 2 LM10UU or 1 LM10LUU.

If you are using a different leadscrew, post the dimensions of the nut in comments, and i will try to make another variant.

Hi tommyc,
I want to upgrade with LM10UU, but I have a trapezoidal leadscrew TR8x1.5.
Kuelhings does have the xend with this leadscrew but with 8mm Z-rod.
My question is ? is it possible to copy and paste the file for the leadscrew in your SCAD ?

anyone set this up using a leadscrew and nut from terawatt industries?  8mm leadscrew not quite sure on the nut dimensions

jtktam on Nov 6, 2012 said:

do you have the part # from misumi? thanks!

for the lead screw and nut? the one that fits this design is discontinued.

Is it possible to get this for a 10mm x-axis?

tommyc on Nov 6, 2012 said:

Just change  "rod_dia = 8;" to "rod_dia = 10;" at the top of the scad file and recompile.

what is the spring / bolt used for in this picture?
http://www.thingiverse.com/ima... I can't work it out!

This is the plunger for the build in Z stop adjustor.  This picture should give you a better idea http://www.flickr.com/photos/3...
I use a Hall-O for z stop in this bot.

Like the x-rod clamps, I'm building a MMax1.5 with 10mm z-rods and 8mm x-rods, 8mm acme leadscrews and LM10UU's in the z-axis, so I have picked the x-end-idler v1.1 and x-end-motor v1.1 - is that right?

tommyc on Sep 29, 2012 said:

Yes, That's correct

jneong on Aug 7, 2012 said:

Thanks for the awesome x-ends! Any chance you can make the idler end take 8mm bushings or LM8UUs for the X-rails to negate any binding?

dethcookie on Aug 6, 2012 said:

This may be a dumb question, but I am using the Acme leadscrew and nut from TechPaladin ( http://techpaladin.com/store/#...
&
amp;mode=product
&
amp;product=8445245 ), but I can't figure out if the nut should go in the bottom, or the top section of the x-end.

I'm used to using 2x M8 nuts with a spring inbetween on my Prusa. Do I need 2 leadscrew nuts as well for this design?

tommyc on Aug 6, 2012 said:

If you use the non misumi version, then it is the same design as the normal prusa x-ends. so 2 nut and a spring in the middle. However, you should be able to get away with just one nut on the bottom.

This looks really good. I'm going to upgrade my Mendelmax 1.0 to use 10mm rods and leadscrews using these.

Do you know what the correct part number for the lead screws and nuts are? I want to make sure I order the correct sizes.

Thanks!

tommyc on May 17, 2012 said:

if you would hold a bit, i am building my MM1.5 with misumi 10mm leadscrew and resin nut. Will post a new version of this specific to that setup, with misumi part numbers.

Labgeek on Apr 21, 2012 said:

What's the X rods size?

Pointedstick on Apr 23, 2012 said:

8mm, but you can edit the scad file to increase them to 10mm easily enough.

bwevans on Apr 16, 2012 said:

That's some great looking plastic, care to share your source?

tommyc on Apr 16, 2012 said:

Already there, just grep all the scad files.
