Parts keep showing up!
The new aluminum bed (3.18mm) as well as all the Y axis goodies came in! I’ve taken a few pics of what we have.
The big bed fits well on the machine, I’ve got a bunch of hardened stainless steel rod from Alexandria Precision here (awesome packaging btw, they make sure it stays straight), IN’s pillowblock bearings from BearingsDirect.com for the Y axis, LM10UUs for the X/Z axis, the Keling servomotor to drive the Y and the AMT encoder and GeckoDrive G320x to control it. I’ve also got my TrinityLabs MetalMagma nozzle on there with a little printed groovemount clamp attached. I ordered a set of nozzle parts (cartridge heater, thermistor, wiring) from ebay, and have those too.
Today I ordered the Rumba board, Pololus, a hobbed nut, and the belting and pulleys for driving the axis are on the way. Hopefully I’ll have this thing together by next month!
While that servomotor looks absolutely huge compared to the dinky steppers on the Sells Mendel, it actual seems to fit comfortably in with the size here…
