selfmade i3 MK3 Z-height 230 / 1.75mm e3d V6 24V / Bondtech MK3 extruder kit
I used custom support in the areas of the cable chain adapters.
How I made this modifications
You may be insteresting in how such changes can be made.
I'm using Autodesk Fusion360 on an iMac. You can download and use Fusion360 for free if you run it as a hobby. After a few videos (there is a very dedicated community!) I first constructed some first smaller parts completely. I use the trial and error method there ;-)
Fusion360 is really powerful tool, but you can also cope as a layman quickly.
Soon I found a part on Thingiverse that did not fit my own constructed i3 mk3. I took 40x20 aluminum profiles for the frame. Since it was very complicated, my own design was not possible for me. This would have exceeded my ability by far. So, with the help of a few videos and logical thinking, I adapted the existing model to my requirements, which really worked very well.
I can only recommend to anyone, just give it a try. It's fun and really great, if it worked and you can mount the modified part. However, remember to mark the changes accordingly and refer to the sources!
Here I describe in keywords how I proceeded with the present part:
- Import STL files "EinsyBox-Body-1x.stl" and "RamboBoxCoverAGN.stl"
- Convert both objects from mesh to BRep
- Create a double fluid volume (1x fluid volume and once again on the body from the first fluid volume) on both objects to get a good body as a starting point for the modification.
- Erase some unnecessary triangles on the BRep bodies to get as sharp rectangular surfaces as possible.
- Cut out the 10x10 drag chain adapter from the body of the "RamboBoxCover" from agnisusm.
- Change another copy of the 10x10 drag chain adapter to fit the 20x10 drag chain.
- Remove the top cable grommets on the EinsyBox body from zaribocom.
- Add the 10x10 drag chain adapter to the zaribocom body by means of extrusion (join).
- Add the 20x10 drag chain adapter to the zaribocom body by means of extrusion (connect).
- Final minor changes to the areas of the grommets (larger passage, rounded corners) and export of the new body as STL.
For "Extendomatic" by llj3663 I used a similar procedure.
I do that as a hobby and teach myself almost everything myself, which I really enjoy. That's why my method may not be the best or most productive but has yielded very good results so far. And that's what matters, right?
