  • Reman: I just half woke up, opened my eyes to check the time. and while doing this I subconsciously noticed something wrong with the shape of shadows on the other side of the room. That woke me up with a jolt!!!  It seems I've got so used to seeing my camera hex perched up on the set of draws in the corner of my bedroom that the area now looks strangely empty without it (I took it apart on Sunday to begin the rebuild into its new Y6 frame)...... And now I'm wide awake at bloody half one in the morning....... And feeling like a paranoid pillock. :(

just wait, you wont be able to fully visualize it yet but you';ll get to a point were you';ve upgraded about all you can on your printer and the thought will hit you...... "hmmm I could have made my own with all these parts Ive made..... wait a dam minute!"

and then you';ll want to make your own from scratch  :laugh:

on the bearings note.

consider going "bearing-less", I remade the carriage on my own designed printer to run it bearingless and you wont realise just how much noise even the most high quality linear rod bearings contribute to a printers overall sound level, even the ceramic bearings Id upgraded to made more noise than the bearingless carriage does now and they were dam expensive feckers.

build either a Delta or a CoreXY and go large

Doug

you meanie..... your making out that Prusa';s cant do "large" :cry :cry :cry

my new design will be capable of 400x400 :tongue:

Even now my Poltur XL will do 300x300 :tongue: :tongue:

you might wanna consider limiting your first "build" to a printer that';ll fit in a room..... rather than a room thats also a printer :laugh:

lol. I don';t think I';ll be building a new printer just yet. I';m still happily getting to grips with the Malyan. Plus, I haven';t finished the new extension yet to put it in.  ;)

No not at all but you do run into issues when trying to move a bed of that size the other option is to move the gantry and keep the bed static.

Swinging that amount of mass of the Bed in say the Y axis (Which is normal for a prusa) causing a lot of induced momentum into the whole printer so you need to slow it down unless you reduce the mass considerably.

The advantage of a CoreXY is the bed only moves in the Z Axis and drops for an increase in Z so it';s mass actually helps here to keep the speeds up

My I3 when I sold it on dis 300x200 using a FG Bed so the mass wasn';t to bad but ideally you want a substantial bed for anything much bigger and that means going towards Cast Tooling plate Silicon heaters usually run of AC Mains Don';t think I would want to start swinging that around  :hmm:

But I wish you luck with it.

This is what you call a big printer tho

My Poltur XL already uses a 3mm Alu plate directly heated by a 200x300 silcone 12v pad on a regular basis, gave the 300x300 a go but It would mean the printer could no longer be enclosed which is one of the main reasons I designed the printer to be integrated directly into a lack table in the first place (along with the increased rigidity it offers) .

with a 300x300 heatedbed it still functions perfectly fine at the same pace as a 200x200 runs its just that the current design means the edge of a 300x300 heated bed juts out at the front and rear when at its maximum and minimum movement range, mean enclosing would be a no go.

I finally got the chance to finish off the mods for my Malyan M150 and did the first test print today.  It';s been upgraded with Malyan M150 Z Braces (a remix of Azza';s Wanhao Z Braces) and Z pillar adjustable feet. I printed additional LED brackets and installed white LED lighting, powered off the main transformer but using a standalone switch. The piped filament is now cooled using a 5050 fan and a Cobra ducting system (planning to print and test a different cooler too that Lee kindly gave me the files for), the hot end is insulated and the gear spring is tensioned with an adjustable spacer (cheers Jeremy  :beer2: ). Oh, and I printed a clip on filament feed too, which works a treat and stops the filament pulling.

The Z axis is now super solid and I';m sure taller prints will benefit from the lack of wobble.  The LED lighting makes seeing what';s being placed on the bed so much easier to see, and the cobra duct helps there too.  I wanted it all to look factory fitted as much as possible, so I wrapped the led wiring in cable spiral protector and heat shrink.  I';m very happy with the finish and looking forward to trialling some bigger prints.
