Looking for size of the Printrbot 1405 XL aluminum print bed

Postby accuprintr » 2018-Dec-Thu-10-Dec

I am building Printrbot 1405 and I don't have a metal bed anymore. Can someone provide dimensions of the XL/regular bed size? I am looking for length, width, and height. I would like to build XL bed. Already have 330mm 8mm CNC rods for the Z axis.

I knew that Printrbot was supposed to be "Open Source" and with some Googling, I was led to this site: https://www.youmagine.com/search/designs?utf8=%E2%9C%93&search=printrbot
I didn't scroll through all 250+ entries there, but maybe you can find what you are looking for.

You might also try GitHub; I know I found some Printrbot Plus design files there once upon a time. I didn't immediately see them today, but GitHub is notoriously fussy about how you Search; it seems like it finds every excuse NOT to locate what you want to find... :?

Good luck.

The 1405 was my first printer, I still have the bed from it, here are the dimensions for the regular bed:

183 X 117.5 mm, 3mm thick

Note: The holes are not the same distance from the sides.

3mm diameter holes, 8mm from the long ends of the plate, 10mm from the edge towards the printer and 4.5mm from the outside edge.

I bought the leveling probe upgrade for it but I made my own longer build plate way back when, the hole placement was the same but on a longer plate I made to fit some longer rods I got.
