Edited @1am: first print. Not the final tweaks. 230mm x 250mm printrbot simple bed trial: https://youtu.be/jknl5ULOzJw
And here is how it turned out. Just a small part without calibrating except for z height. Wish all my prints turned out this well.!
Going to bed!
Original message : About ready to start testing mine. Finally got it assembled and the bed frame worked better than I could imagine. Friction fit and it's tight as heck but I am still going to add screw holes to secure the aluminum railing in case it loosens in use.
I have a few minor tweaks I already need to update in the design, but wanted to show where it's at right now. The major thing I am hoping works is the bed frame. Not only do I want to use the full length of Jon's extended Y, but I want to be able to swap out bed top materials using just standard binder clips. The main one being the 9.5"x12.6" inch 3mm thick borosilicate glass.
One thing I didn't consider is I may have to extend some wires to allow the Y to extend without stressing them to their limits.
It would be nice if it works without problems, but we know that isn't going to happen!
