Air 2 - Jordan
by wasta, published
It can increase your print height by 60mm or 2.3 inches (depending on your hot end)
The printable height has been increased to 150mm (w/ Budaschnozzle) by extending the laser cut frame and flipping the z axis motors to the bottom of the printer. This printer can be assembled with the same smooth and threaded rods used for an Air 2 (The photos show a printer using 395mm smooth rods on all axis. The renders show the frame with the original Air 2 rod lengths)
This is a work in progress. Any and all suggestions for improvement are welcome.
**EDIT: Added low-poly versions of frame and motor brackets for faster slicing.**
* 190mm x 190mm x 150mm print area
* z motors flipped to bottom of printer
* printed braces for increased frame rigidity. (all braces moved to rear of frame for cleaner aesthetic.)
* the top acrylic brace has been extended to the back of the printer to ensure square and make room for printed braces.
* the crosspiece has been heightened / widened to increase strength and open up the build envelope
* cable / filament routing
* additional threaded brace / filament spool holder. (this is optional, but it seems to stiffen the frame. it is similar to Airwolf3d design but moved outside of 150mm printable area in z axis)
* all curves from RepRap Air 2 design removed in favor of chamfers
* unnecessary holes / slots removed.
* can use same "vitamins", smooth and threaded rods as or Air 2 (as shown smooth rods on z are cut to 395)
Design based largely on RepRap Air 2 by Mecano, ideas and parts from Lulzbot, Airwolf3d, and RepRapPro. thanks!

is it possible to get an DXF file of 10MM size asi can run in a CNC with 3mm?
That shuld be BEST Ever!
Well, all my prints are going well, as you can see here for example:
I have no idea why it keeps going wrong on this one. I tried different settings.. Somehow there is somewhere a part in the file that has a place where my print-bed has to move too fast and it looks as if my stepper motor skips a step. I haven't had this on any other print and I have tweaked my stepper drivers very well.

Print the included frame brackets and motor brackets. I would recommend ABS for all parts with a generous infill on the frame brackets.
Assembly is basically the same as the Air 2, and the parts from the original BOM can be used.
The printer is shown with x ends from Airwolf3D, and a custom x carriage, but any x axis compatible with an i2 should work.
* 23 - M3 x 12mm
* 4 - M3 x 16mm
* 35 - M3 Washers
* 27 - M3 Nuts
* 1 - M8 threaded rod 360mm (optional spool holder)
