Torrentz will always love you. I wanted to make a 3D printer for a long time. When I decided to make it, I bought necessary materials and I started with my creo 2.0 sheet metal tutorial pdf printer dreamed. I was looking for information on many websites and I saw different models, Prusa , Delta, etc.
In the end, I decide to make the Delta model since it was the most attractive model for me . Then I ‘ll describe you how I did it . I will start to explain you how I made the prototype needed to make pieces of the final printer, I hope you like it and you feel encouraged to make your own 3D printer. Hotend 1,75 mm and mouthpiece 0. Before mounting it, it is recommended to test the electronic to make sure everything works fine. To do this, we need to load the firmware in Arduino. We will use two types of firmware, Sprinter and Marlin.
First we use an old version of Sprinter just to test the electronic as this allows you to move motors without having to activate the sensors. Then in the end, we will load new version of Marlin. Firstly we have to adjust the pololus to limit the maximum current that will consume the engines. What we must do is to put a motor on the connector of the extruder and make it work through Pronterface program. To view the current we will use the multimeter. I recommend you to see it, as it is very well explained and it includes some videos.
First thing that we are going to build is the prototype. It took me a day to mount it. We print the plane in A2 format, then the plane is placed on a wood and we cut it. This is done to both, the bottom and the top. Then we drilled holes with 8 mm drill.
It is recommended to drill the holes with the two boards together to make it more accurate. At the top we will make a big hole where we will place the engine of the extruder. At the base we will make a small hole to put wires of hotbed. To hold the filament we cut a piece of wood bar and two pieces as you can see in the pictures. We put steel rods into the holes. The pulleys are caught with a screw in the center of the edge of the wood without pressing to make it can turn easily.
