Heatbed upgrade – extrusion profiles supports

heatbed holder

Notice about GT2 pulleys

The gt 2 pulleys on the pictures here are show only as an information. You will install them later on.

 

List of parts:

  • 3 extrusion profiles supports (plastic part)
  • 1 extrusion support with end stop (pièce plastique)
  • 8 x 625ZZ bearings
  • 8 x  M6x12mm screws
  • 8 x M6 TNuts
  • 4 GT2 16 teeth pulleys
  • 1 cable tie

Assembly process

Take the plastic part

Use 2x625ZZ bearings

These 2 bearings will be inserted inside specific grooves of the plastic part.

How to place the later GT2 pulleys

The GT 2 pulley will then come between the 2 bearings.

Special note:

In order to align later on the belt, the pulley will need to be laid against 1 of the bearings. In order to keep the symetric aspect of this part, you will get a small void between the other side of the pulley and the other bearing.

 

The location of the pulley will be explained later on

Repeat the same logic on the 2 other parts. You should get 3 identical parts.

End stop holder.

The procedure is the same here

The only difference is the special location where you need to install the end stop

Note however the location of the en stop wheel pointing up.

 

Warning, this end stop holder has been updated starting Avril 2017

Here is the new version

In order to keep track of previous parts,  here is the old version.(before Avril 2017)

Once assembled

Again the pulleys cann be held right now and are shown only for further comprehension

Preparing the nuts and screws

The final phase here is to prepare all the M6X12mm screws and their Tnuts that we will use later on.

You will need :

  • 8 x M6x12mm screws
  • 8 x M6 Tnuts

The side holes on the plastic parts are used to install these screws and Tnuts

Working principle

This kit allows to electrically switch off your 3D printer when your print are finished

In order to achieve this, a power câble is being instrumented, and a static relay provide enough control for the 3D printer controler to allow this feature to work.

Soldering of brown and yellow/green wires

After soldering the pairs of electric wires, make sure that the thrincable tubing is placed over the soldering location. Also make sure to thrink the tube using a matches, lighter…






Securing power cables



Signal cable wiring

In certain kits, this wire might already be wired to the static relay unit.

In the other case make sure to cut the 2 pins connector from the cable and to keep the part with the 3 pins connector.


Securing the signal wire inside the enclosure

 PS_ON module only:

The 2 arrows shows where to connect the wires from the PS_ON Module

  • The black wire is to be connected at the bottom of the schematic
  • The red wire is to be connected at the top of the schematic

PS_ON Module + BLTouch:

  • The module has 1 black connector with 3 pins
  • Only 2 pins are connected to this black connector
  • You need to remove the metallic connector
  • You might need a thin blade in order to lift the strips and pull the wire to remove it from the black housing.

Use the provided 2×1 Pin housing

  • Insert the metallic connector inside. You should hear a « click » sound once properly in place
  • You should have this

Assemblage du support de bobine en aluminium

Support bobine aluminiumCette page présent l’assemblage du support de bobine en aluminium pour la gamme d’imprimante 3D Scalar.

Ce support de bobine est modulaire et permet de maintenir efficacement vos bobines en place.

Le profilé en aluminium permet également aux bobines de se dérouler correctement avec très peu de frictions.

Vous pouvez également modifier la position des éléments à votre guise afin que ce support puisse convenir à votre application.

liste des piècesListe des pièces:

  • 8 écrous marteau
  • 8 vis M6x12
  • 2 équerres grandes équerres
  • 1 équerre petite équerre
  • 2 profilé aluminium 200mm de long
