MGN Cube - 90% finished. Only beauty works and side wall´s are missing
Hello, an awesome job!!,
Let me ask you, your bed is custom aluminum sheet?, how do you level? i cant see the springs...
Hi, thanks of all first.
The Bed is from FilaFarm. I add you a YouTube Video and the link from the customer.
wow! this is a serious bed
thanks for share this
Kannst du mal ein, zwei, drei Bilder von deiner Filamenthalterung und Führung zum Extruder posten? Bin gerade am überlegen, wie ich das am besten löse.
Hier die Bilder. Habe eine Rollenhalterung an mein Gestell gebastelt. Somit förder ich direkt zum Extruder
Danke für die Pic's :)
Und das geht nicht zu sehr "um die Ecke" ... Gut zu wissen. Denn aktuell war ich dabei etwas für das Dach zu planen.
Hi, how much did you spend building this printer? I would like to know what i'm getting into before I start the project.
that´s difficult to say, because i reused a lot of parts from my old HEVO ( Heatbed from Filafarm, Power supply´s DUET3d, Display,....)
The Printer has now a value from round about 1000€
If this is a 30x30cm printbed, can you tell me how big is the size with the case / outside size?
1) Yes, it´s a 300x300 Heatbed
Thank you very much! This 3 ... "FANs" in the front panel on the right, are this fans or only lights?
And the case around it has it carbon "look" or is it carbon? I love the look but dont know how you made it? :-)
Maybe a last question, the printed files which materials do you used for it? And can you make with it also POM or PA12 or PETg so that this parts dont melt when the heatbed has to heat up to 100°C for e.g. printing ABS?
To print PLA would be possible for me with my CR-10 but more is hard without warping. Or is there a better way to start with the print parts so that i dont have to exchange them later again?
Thanks for your help, and again - your printer is a dream for me which i try to make come true :-) Looks really awesome!
1) The three rings in the front are lights. I´m programing at the moment my arduino´s to run the lights ( temperature, homing and printing )
2) The Parts in the front was printed in PETG and then i do water transfer printing for the carbon look.
3)Materials: I used PLA ( Silk Gold ) for "normal" Parts and PETG für stable Parts
I think it´s not important to print it in ABS, but it´s up to you. I have 3 printers with the PLA and PETG filament and i have no problems with cracked parts.
Nice that you like the printer. I hope you finish your´s soon and it will be more better than mine. If you have any question, contact me
Awesome! Thanks for the infos. The idea with Carbon and watertransfer ... yes sure now after you said it ... but it looks really real i have to say, very good work!
Yes to let the lights show how warm the bed or nozzle is is a very cool idea and gives it a functionionaltiy. Great!
PET-g i try to make on my CR-10 tmr.
I am looking atm for the MGN12h plus rails ... i found out that Hiwin is the best you can get most said, but also the most expensive ones :-) But its very important that they are very good. I dont know where i should order or what is a good price or what should be my max price for it. Do you maybe have a link where you bought yours from?
What i still dont understand is, BLV said buy the aluminium extrusions in european standard, and i saw the picture, but i didnt saw an difference. Can you explain where the difference between the european standard and the others? After i t iwould start to search for them to, or if you have here also a link - it would help me maybe also :)
Thanks a lot for your help!
Thanks a lot Fireball.
1) I bought my rails here:https://shop.bohrers.de/linearfuehrung-400mm-mgn12h.html
Very good quality for a good price.
2) The different of the profiles are the groove.
German standard for example is 2020 but with a 5mm groove. The Parts where designed by Ben, for a 6mm groove. So you can´t take for example german aluminum profile because the have 5mm and the printed parts are 6mm.
I have bought german industrial profile and milled it to 6mm :) For me it was cheaper :)
