Rostock Bed Design -DXF output by kraczekj Feb 14, 2013


This is an OpenSCAD drawing of a Rostock Bed and Top written so that you can Export it as a DXF and send those parts to a laser printer or a plotter.

in the current configuration the distance from the smooth rods to the center of the print bed is 175mm, the standard Rostock Size. there are holes for you to attach the Heated PCB MK1 and to connect the RAMPS 1.4

you can configure the location of the holes if you have a different PCB or different set of electronics.

the idea for this loosely came from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:31593 by RustyPaint

To generate an DXF so that you can send it to the laser i followed this process:

  1. Generate the Part the way that you would like to see it. adjust the holes and the other parts to your liking.

  2. Set Generate_DXF to true and then Compile using CGAL (F6) This took a while for me, but i have a slower computer

  3. Export to DXF

Cut out the parts: 1x Top 1x Bottom 2x Bracket_with_space 2x Bracket_without_space

you will need an addional (4) 3"x28"x1/8 acrylic sheets for the walls, you could use wood or some other material tho.

  1. Glue Two (2) of the acrylic sheets together to form an L Channel, if you have the means you could just bend a 6 inch sheet in half, at any rate you get the L shape, then glue a bracket with space and bracket without space to the L channel - the height will depend on how tall your printer is so i wont give that here.

2 Repeat step 1 for the other Channel.

3 After everything has cured, bolt the L-Channels to the Top and Bottom. and there you have it!
