My shapeoko 3d printer

Postby oceax » Fri Jun 29, 2012 12:59 am

My setup
Controller: Printrbot
Extruder: Greg's wade reloaded
Hotend: J-Head Mk IV-B
- Orifice: 0.50 mm (default)
- Filament Size: 3mm
Heatbed: PCB Mk2 heatbed

Software: Pronterface

Did my first print without calibrating, video dosn't show much, but everything worked great except z-axis needs some adjustment.
After some time the printer head crashed a bit into the printed object and i had to abort. But it looks promising.

I have bought two, one from ebay (USA) user: jbgeisl and one from http://www.2printbeta.de
The extruder i got from jbgeisl was top quality.

Now i have to write some software so i can use the printrboard for both milling and 3d printing :/

Dude i would be forever in your debt if you write a list of items and everything you did/got to make this happen...

I am new to 3d printing so this is not necessarily the best stuff.

Printrboard Electronics Rev C - http://www.makerfarm.com/catalog/i12.html
- Compact, very easy to use but has only support for 1 extruder. I will probably buy some other electronics like ramps in the future because of this.
There is a link to software and guide for using the software there. (marlin firmware)

Heatbed PCB Mk2 with thermistor and leds - http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 184wt_1396
You also need 3mm glass sheet ontop... i got one from a friend.

Hotend: J-Head Mk IV-B - http://www.hotends.com/
- Orifice: 0.50 mm (default)
- Filament Size: 3mm
Also get: Heater Resistor (5.6 ohm) and thermistor.

There is a new hotend now, J-Head Mk V-B that i have ordered.
And this time i ordered with Orifice 0.35 mm. 0.5 seems to be a bit clumsy with fine details like tooth's on a pulley.
But i guess 0.5 is better when printing large objects. And also they are not exactly 0.35 or 0.5 apparently according to the manufacturers blog.
They are a bit smaller so you have to set that in a config file nozzle orifice 0.5 mm is aprox 0.475 mm - http://jheadnozzle.blogspot.se/

Greg's wade reloaded, i got the unassembled + bolt/screw set from http://www.2printbeta.de and it works great.

Stepper motors, you need 4. I got 0.9 deg (400 steps/rotation) you already got 3 for shapeoko but you should get stepper with extra torque for extruder.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/370611942952?ss ... 584wt_1171

You also need lots of good wires (heatbed dual 10A wire + thermistor, hotend thermistor + heater) and some way to connect them to the board. I just soldered them to the board (very ugly).
You should get kapton tape - ebay (heat resistant and used to hold stuff in place)

Also, you can't just solder the wires to the hotend heater. The tin just melt :? so get clamps to connect them.

After more calibration i have much better prints

If you have any luck with making the printrboard work for extruders and routers, I'd be very interested. I just got one myself & am waiting on the extruder.
Shapeoko #384: dual-Y, outside-belt, ACME-Z,1000mm Y, drag chain cable management, insert-nut style base board, 800mw IR laser cutter, & 3d-printing with Qu-Bd & Printrboard.

Not sure if this helps:

Which also means... (if it works) my AtomCNC can be used for 3D printing :)

(Other firmwares are currently untested but any firmware for an arduino mega should work with proper pin setup.)

AtomCNC v2 (AtomCNCn3D) will work also :)

I have not tried to make the printrboard mill yet for the reason in atomsofts link and i have a grblShield with 2.5A drivers (printrboard is 2A)
But replacing the software on the printrboard takes 30sec so switching between grbl and marlin that way is not too painfull.

And i will change my shapeoko so that i have a long y-axis and three x/z-axis for pick n place, milling, and 3d printring with three extruders.
3D printing can take time, so i want extra axis to be able to mill at the same time.
