PrintrBot original Part Names and 4 letter Codes

Postby CL1 » 2012-Apr-Sun-00-Apr

Important note: As of Update 25, 18 May 2012, Brook has decided to change to a number instead of the 4 letters. The numbers have been arbitrarily chosen, with only a basic attention to their relation to any specific part. They apparently do break down by machine somewhat. Brook said he would post these new numbers to printrbot.com immedatiely after finishing the video update, But it appears he did not do so. If you find these, please point them out! I would suggest that we simply ADD the new numbers to the left of the current listing. That way both the legacy and the now-official numbers will be easily correlated. I will update this listing once Brook makes the new numbering available!

Here are the *official* PrintrBot original Printed part names and 4 Letter codes as used at PBHQ:
QTY Code Name (Comment)
2 BASE Base
1 ZEST Z Endstop Switch mount (Mounts on Left Top Rear 5/16 threaded rod)
1 GUID Y Belt Guide
2 PULY 10T Belt Pulley
2 CLIP Belt Clip
3 YBAR Y Bar Ends
1 YEST Y Endstop Actuator (Mounts to front of left Ybar)
4 CPLR Z threaded Rod Coupler (Large Diameter over plastic tubing)
1 XMOT X Motor Block
1 XIDL X Idler Block
1 XCAR Carriage
1 EXMT Extruder Mount
1 EXTR Extruder Body
1 EXID Extruder Idler
1 SMGR Small Herringbone Gear
1 LGGR Large Herringbone Gear

*1 XESF X Endstop Fix (Transitional part, only used with older XCAR as fix or upgrade)
*1 YESF Y Endstop Fix (Transitional part, only used with Older BASE as fix or upgrade)

*4 GLAS Glass Retainer (Optional, Internal part for securing glass. At least 2 versions currently. Future name will be GLSn where n is rev or style number)

Wood Laser Cut parts
PBED= PrintBED ( Visually discerned from similarly sized LC by PBED having narrowing indents on the sides, discerned from PrintBed for the Plus by size!)
PBMT=PrintrBoard MounT (The single similar part for the LC is PC MT Printrboard lC MounT)

Are the 4x GLAS included in the kits? Or will they be one of my first prints?


Cheers,

Definitely not a necessary item, and so not included.

Hi!

I'm missing the ZEST and YEST in my Printrbot original kit. No big issue, "hacked" something to be able to start printing.

Found them here:

(buckyball, you saved my day! :P )

Cheers,

Ralf.

Are there official names/codes for the lazer cut parts with the Original?
