You can salvage ribbon ferrite sleeve things out of those scanner copier printers, I got a few out of two I just salvaged the other day.

Re: My RosBot build made it to top ten in Misumi contest

The rails do add a some rigidity to the frame, however if I grabbed the top and lightly shook it back and forth it would move so much and if I tried to apply a twisting force it was way too easy to twist as well. I know there wont be much twisting force when printing but there will for sure be some ...

Re: My RosBot build made it to top ten in Misumi contest

Well I've spent about 1,000 but there was some stuff I didn't use. I have to figure out the BOM to know for sure. :D I'm hoping to run a kickstarter or indiegogo to offer it as kits if I can find good suppliers.

Re: Clunking Noise???

typically that clunk is it doing a rapid move, but a tiny one.. if you have your rapid speeds high, and it changes the perimeter it will clunk like that when it does the small movement to the next row... I've seen it a lot.. its like a super fast, small travel that doesnt need a retract, so it just...

Clunking Noise???

When my printer is doing really small areas like around corners with a screw hole it makes this kinda clunking noise, it sounds really strange and only does it on these small areas where it is starting and stopping the filament flow really fast. I cant seem to catch it in a way that allows me to mak...

Re: X axis not responding

Well this was my first 3d printer, building my second now, but there wasn't any documentation about the "right" amount of tension to put on the belts, it was just tension the belt until you think it is good lol. So it wouldn't surprise me if I do have too much tension on the belts, they ar...

Re: X axis not responding

Well I knew something was wrong with one of the steppers as it would make a clunking sound that started about 2 or 3 weeks ago but I was not able to figure out which one it was, when the stepper stopped driving the axis I was pretty sure it was a dead stepper but to make sure I took one of my extra ...

Re: RosBot V 1.0

How's the progress on this looking? What are you doing for your linear motion? Actual linear bearings? Are you going with a belt driven system?

Re: X axis not responding

Well, it was the stepper motor, built this in October 2013, wouldn't think the motors would go so fast! I only have 18 days 3 hours 50 minutes of printing time on it according to the firmware. Oh well, at least it wasn't something too major and I had some Kysan steppers just sitting around!

Hah! Well you all have convinced me. I'm really one of those guys who figures "I'll just build it myself", but in this case it's just easier and cheaper to get a kit (especially with warranty, support, and an active user group!). Plus, right now I don't know much about 3d printers, so bet...

Re: How much to build a Rostock MAX?

If you're serious, go through the entire assembly manual and collate all the parts and hardware into a shopping list. Figure out where to source each part from and how much it will cost to do so, including shipping if you can't find it locally. Ramps 1.4+Arudino Mega+Drivers will be cheaper than Ra...
