X and Y belt upgrade printed parts

Postby rjm544 » 2014-Feb-Sun-11-Feb

So I ate through my X axis' fishing line on my Simple and decided that rather than buy a $30 spool of line, i'd just go belts. The problem of course is I can't print the parts to the belt upgrade. Could someone print me the 5 parts to upgrade the X and the 6 for the Y? I'd be super appreciative and plan on paying it forward on here.

I'm in Topeka Kansas.

When do you need it by? Also on the Y upgrade, which front belt piece do you need? The one that incorporates the new fan location or just the L shape looking piece?

Thanks,
Evan

Not a Huuuuuuge hurry but it is for a class so as soon as possible. I'd be happy within two weeks, if I can't get it by then I might have to try to run into Kansas City or buy printed parts. On the Y, I didn't know there were two, I don't need a new fan location I don't think.

Thanks!

I hate to break promises, so I'll just start printing the parts today and see if I can get them all made by then. They might come in different colors so... yeah.

I would love this!!! I have the simple tower xl. I think the parts are the same either way...

If there's a good samaritan out there, my used printrbot isn't quite working right.

Hey, so I'm still having a few issues. Number one, how does everyone get PLA to stick well to aluminum?

Also, for some reason the printer thinks the bed is way longer than it is. I completely reset all printer and slic3r settings and information and updated them to the correct bed size. For example, when I have this set up

the object prints about midway down the bed. When I manually run the printer down the bed, the little indicator that tells you where the head is at is in the correct position, so I'm not sure what the issue could be.

Did you update your x axis eeprom settings for steps? You just changed to gt2 gears? You need to update the eeprom config anytime you change to a different drive gear/belts.

The printrboard knows how long it is after being updated with M commands. Thats why it's weird, I'm not sure where the issue could lie. The printer knows it's size and repertier knows it's size. I will try to remember to get a M503 tomorrow to make sure and so you guys can see it.

Anyone happen to be able to print the X in ABS? I managed to print out the Y upgrade myself in PLA (the wood seems to insulate well enough against the fairly hot motor) but am planning on adding a heated bed to my Simple and upgrading it to the XL at the same time; I don't really want to take apart my machine twice, mostly because I am worried about weakening the friction fit for the smooth rods in the z-axis so if anyone would be kind enough to print out the parts in ABS, I am more than happy to pay it forward :)
