List of Tronxy 3d printable modification/parts

by 3D_PrintingSlav

A usefull list of usefull prints and modyfications for your Tronxy 3d printer:

Want to add more? Just write in post below and I add it when I see it.

Most if not all of those parts should work for all 3d printers from tronxy family unless specified otherwise

Part coolers:

  1. One of the best I found untill now. I have printed it in silver PLA and even tho its very thin it didnt melt when I was printing stuff in 245C

If you have bigger fan you want to use with it that might come helpfull:

  1. I used it for quite a while, its sturdy and works well however its pain in the donkey to remove it for maintenance. Also it have problems with printing in higher temp than 200C

  2. Looks like that might work for our Tronxy mashine as per this fb post (https://www.facebook.com/groups/1694483897515810/permalink/1826112524352946/)


  1. Its more or less garbage. I am putting it here because its my design, some people actually use this so they prob knows better how it works.

Belt Tentioners:

  1. X axis, very good, very reliable solution, rorks on my x1 and works on x3, I suspect it would work for any 3d printer with 20x20 open on one end axis.

  2. X Axis, another one, looks more sturdy, did not test it out actually.

  3. [x1] Y axis and some other improovements, did not printed out but looks sturdy:

  4. [x1] Y axis Not perfect but I have it on my printer for 9 months and it does work no problemo

  5. [x3] Y axis. Not sure how well it works as I dont have x3 but this fella does amazing job so I thing it will work perfectly fine.

Base case

1.[x1] A case for all electronic that goes underneath your printer, its good, you can print it on tronxy x1, a little bit of gluing and you might safe some pizza cartons to make bottom for it as it might be tricky to print bottom parts but its tested by me and works great

  1. [X1] Another one, looks better than previous one.

Small usefull thingos:

  1. Thumbnut screw replacement. For adjusting your bed level. Those are pure gold in comparison to metal ones that comes with the kit.

  2. 20x20 endstop fitting (its designed with z axis x1 in mind):

Tronxy x1 firmware backup

by NightMind

I'm new to 3dPrinting, could you please advise how to backup the stock Repetier-Frimware 0.91 from my TronXY X1 machine? So I could easily restore it after tinkering with other firmwares like Marlin or repetier-firmware 1 ?

Melzi 2.0 board replacement

by vernpres

I have a DMYCO clone of the TRONXY P802ma. I bought this printer about 15 months ago and recently had a short on the motherboard. I ordered a new Melzi 2.0 board from AliExpress. It arrived yesterday, and I installed it on my printer. I turned the printer on and the fans started, but the display screen was black. I tried connecting to my computer to see if I could move the print head etc through Repetier Host. The computer can not connect to the printer.

Any ideas on how I might get this working? Do I pewrhaps have to flash firmware? How would I do this?

Of course, the new board might be faulty.

I should mention that the problem on the old board was that the power line shorted and melted the screw terminal connector. The screen was still lighting up. I have a new connector on order, so will hopefully be able to repair the old board.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

TronXY X1 and heat bed

by anno73


I got myself a heat bed from geeetech that fits nicely.
But now I do not know how to enable it :-(
Does the stock firmware support heat beds? Any one tried yet successfully?

Thanks a lot,

TronXY X1 prints incorrect dimensions - especially holes and Z

by anno73


I have a strange situation with my TronXY X1.
I have designed a circular standoff (20mm x 7.8mm) in Fusion 360 with an internal hole diameter of 4mm. When I print this I get resulting diameter of ~3mm. Diameter varies from 8.3mm (z=0mm) down to 7.30mm (z=19.35mm)
The overall height is not 20mm but 19.35mm.

I use repetier-host v2.1.3 witn integrated Curaengine and Slic3r. Both slicers show this strange behavior although not to the same extend.

Any idea someone?

Thanks a lot,

Tronxy X1 Direct Drive conversion?

by ardunoid


i just ordered a Tronxy X1 as my third printer. i was wondering if there is a possibility to convert the printer to a direct drive extruder. I did some Google-searching, but i didn't find anything helpful... Did anybody try the converson yet, and maybe Failed? Or was it just not worth the effort yet because the printer is too cheap :D

Problems With Tronxy X1 Extrusion

by RandoModBuild

So I recently got a tronxy x1, it was working fine. I installed a cooling fan (part), z axis stabilizer, and a belt tensioner. After the belt tensioner upgrade though, I printed something and the extruder motor started clicking and skipping extrusions. I increased the current by turning the pot labeled 'E' clockwise on the melzi board and it works, but occasionally. For example, the extrusion is uneven. One side of the part gets more then enough plastic where the other side gets barely any at all, even if the motor is turning. The motor also makes squeaking noises, which I think is due to over current, but I am not turning the current back down because I think the problem is that there isn't enough!! I am running out of ideas to fix this, can anybody help?

X5S how to swap heated bed reading with hot end in marlin??

by hamhead


I got 1.1.8 marlin onto my x5s successfully. I have no idea on programming or what not I used a simple guide online to flash marlin onto the X5s.

Unfortunately my thermistor shorted on the hot end and it is stuck at 258 degrees reading the moment I turn it on.

Is there a way to configure the control board to read the heated bed thermistor as the hot end instead? this way I can swap the thermistors instead of having to change out the controller board. I dont mind not having a heated bed, I just print PLA anyways I can use masking tape for adhesion.

Someone please help me or please if someone can, lead me to a resource that can help me, thanks!!!!

Tronxy X5S doesn't include eccentric spacers?

by naviathan

Going through the build guides I noticed the carriages don't have eccentric spacers. This seems like a bad design. OpenBuilds uses eccentric spacers on all their carriages to adjust out any slack. Anyone think it would be worthwhile to add them in place of some of the standard spacers?
