Electronic box V1.0:
Inside some kits, an electronic box is provided already assembled.
In this cas just place the box on the top of the chassis at the same location as the electronic support at the bottom of this page.
In the other case, the assembly is very similar, the arduino is to be screwed first and then the Ramps board comes on top of it.
The 4 holes are asymetrical, so the USB connector of the arduino board and the Power terminals of the Ramps board should all exit on the right side of the box. On this picture, they should exit at the bottom of it.
The LCD scree is to be screwed with 4 M3x8mm screws on it’s dedicated support.
The support will then be screwed on the other part of the box using 4 M3X20mm screws.
Electronic Box V1:
The fan grid will directly be screwed using 4 M3X8mm.
The electronic box can be mounted on the printer as shown on these pictures
Electronic Box V2.5:
Starting from V2.0 the electronic box has became modular.
On this picture you can see that each part is independent from each other and can be assembled easily.
The left side has now a simple grid for airflow output.
Here is a picture of the box assembled.
And here a view of the box from the side.
How to mount Box V2.5:
The location of the box is exactly the same as previously.
The change here is the location of the 80mm fan, now placed at the back of the box.
The main change from Version 2.0 is the position of the LCD screen.
The front of the printer now becomes the back and vice versa.
The Z axis stepper motors are now facing you and you have direct acces to the hot end.
The spool holder is now on your right.
List of parts :
- 1 Arduino + ramps + LCD already assembled
- 5 M6x12mm screws
- 5 M6 T-Nuts
- [provided] 1 allen key
Place 2 screws and the outside of the plastic parts.
Take it so that the Scalar logo is oriented toward the top, then place 3 sets of T-Nuts+Screws on the following corners:
- Top right
- bottom right
- bottom left
Now screw the electronic module so that the LCD module is located on the top aluminum extrusion and the other electronic module fixed on top right corner of the 2 aluminum profiles .
The 2 top screws are screwed on the top extrusion, and the 3rd bottom right screw is tightened on the side extrusion.
In order to keep a clean way for future cable sets, you can place the exceeding LCD wires between the square holders of the chassis and the plastic electronic support.
Here the picture shows the back of the printer (the opposite side as the previous picture).
The front of the LCD is placed on the same side as the power supply, but on the right side.
