Printrbot Army

Postby Defy » 2014-Jun-Wed-20-Jun

So my printrbot army is almost complete! Ok so its more like a squad/fireteam than an army, o well. I have yet to have them up all up and running together (one of the 1405's is missing parts used to make the others run). Still working on a heatbed for the metal. But no more upgrades after that. i am waiting to see if pb puts out a metal plus if it doesnt come out soon i am going to build a lulzbot taz with one of the 1405's electronics. Its about 300 in parts to convert.

Picture stinks but here are the specs:
Simple 1405 w/xl and heatbed from 3dheatbeds, extruder fan and some legs, relay setup w/30amp psu
Simple 1405 stock w/extruder fan
Black simple metal bone stock but the extruder fan mod is coming first thing.

The plan is to keep the metal for myself and use the other two for teaching purposes. I plan to develop som lessons using OpenSCAD (more like a programming language where i can teach more math oriented) then have a class where kids design something small and print it. Still want like 2-4 more simples so i can keep the class to 2-3 hours start prints send them to lunch come back and prints are finishing. I want to try it out on a local boyscout troop first. We'll see.

If you do three extruders than more than likely you will want to go Bowden which has some downfalls. I would recommend swapping one of your simples to Bowden. That way you know what your getting into.

I have a plus that is heavily modded and I can tell anything more than the dual direct drives would be a downfall with this kind of setup.

Did you ever have any luck converting? I have been thinking about it as well. 300 isn't bad at all. I would love to have a plus, but is a nice chunk of change.
