09/07/2016: Global update after one year production. Now setup in 4 plates ready to print. This is the bowden version. In onshape exists direct extruder version too.
11/12: Now XY_bearings_R is fix.
11/7:: ramps support internal. a little less plastic to print. new printed cube. now with 3 holes to put 3 m3x20 in. It makes your cube as solid as aluminium version ! definitely.
10/23: bom added. sorry for the delay.
10/06: new motor support right to align better and be more consistent with the left one. Some little changes in all models to help ease of assembly.
09/18: Bigger pulley_608 hole, smooth Xrod_support and endstop, new XY_bearings_LR for easier assembly, add slit on Z_slide and bigger nuts hole on Y_Slide_LR
09/16: Add idler_pulley and new XY_bearings R L
08/27: scalu_Y_rod_motor_support_R was missing. good now.
Here is our last SmartrapCore evolution :
The SmartrapCore ALU!
Now aluminium profiles are becoming mainstream , we can enjoy the more modern look, the assembly benefit , thanks to hammer nuts, and the stability in time of aluminium.
Like all our designs, this model is full , active, open source and you are welcome to build one.
The assembly documentation is on youtube : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQFCcp26U0U&list=PLOC55t9dY7y94dfJ4VI-5qbKi7heZsKoJ
the realtime 3d model is on sketchfab ( very usefull for asswembly ) . We are working on putting all screws and accessories in it, so eventually you would need only that to assemble the printer :
This model was designed in onshape :
We , at smartfriendz, found this new CAD software the best solution to share our open designs . Everybody with a little learning path will be able to copy it and modify simple things , or make new accessories.
The Smartrapcore standard is still active and you will find the new version of the design ( evolution ) in the very same onshape document. Only the openjscad version will not be updated.
