Wallace++ (M8 edition) by sponnet Mar 27, 2013


An enhanced version of the Wallace 3D printer.
Features a more stable X-carriage construction which balances the extruder body over 2 horizontally mounted rods. It uses less screws & bolts than the original Wallace.

Some features :
* Y-mount.stl & y-bearing-guide.stl : An enhanced mount for centering the Y-axis belt. Gives you a more stable pull.
* X-end2-motor.stl + X-end2-idler.stl : new motor mounts, align the X-axis horizontally
* X-carriage.stl : carriage for the horizontal setup. Fits a wade extruder & any type of hotend, even the newer short JHead extruders...
* base_end_2off.stl : enhanced base - puts the linear bearings as far apart as possible to enhance the stability of the print bed.
* y_bearing_retainer_stopswitch.stl : bearing retainer including a ziptie stopswitch mount, for your Z-stopswitch.

Update 20130430 : New Y-mount & bearing-guide uploaded.

I've uploaded repaired versions of the y_bearing_retainer.stl and y_bearing_retainer_stopswitch.stl - the manifold errors should be gone now...

you can check & correct the STL with a free version of netfabb. I'll try to upload a new version here.

y_bearing_retainer.stl and y_bearing_retainer_stopswitch.stl give errors in Slic3r (the latter has a hole reported on import, the former also and after processing has overlapping or self-intersecting facets,...)
Is this a known issue that doesn't cause any (real) printing problems ?
