X Carriage for E3Dv6
I needed a new x carriage for my printer. I switched to the P3Steel, from the original Anet A8 acrylic frame, and lost a bit of Z print area. There are a lot of great carriages already existing, but I decided to have a go at designing my own, from scratch.
Included are the full build (with fan mount + sensor), a simpler version with only the sensor mount, as well as just the E3Dv6 mount.
For the moment, I've only designed a 18mm sensor mount. I will eventually release a version for a 12mm sensor, I just haven't been able to get around to it yet.
I am by no means a 3D design expert. This is very much a side project, mainly so I can learn, have fun, and build a part for my printer =)
There is definitely room for improvement, and I will work on it when I am able to. Comments/Suggestions from more experienced designers are most certainly welcome!
The current version of the fan duct most certainly needs work. Airflow and angles of the holes needs to be redone. It works, but has trouble cooling fine detail, I will try to get to this in the next while.
The holes on the back are designed so any belt holder for the Anet A8 can be used (example: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1433295)
This print, is most certainly not an easy print. You will definitely need supports, but also to make sure that no supports end up in the fan ducts. Something like Simplify3D is recommended, so you can chose where supports go.
Marlin Sensor Offset
#define X_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER -38 #define Y_PROBE_OFFSET_FROM_EXTRUDER -3
Note: You can't use floating point numbers in these constants, so I've rounded them.
Prusa i3 Clone
Make sure there are no supports inside the fan ducts.
I used supports, but this has been printed successfully with no supports.
How I Designed This
I've designed this part using OnShape.com.
