What's New In The 3D Printer World
Customized Tronxy X5S
I keep on getting asked to keep members of Groups on Facebook to keep the upto date with the Customisation of My second X5S. So I have created a special section on our forum to create a build log,
This is not going to be a quick build log as I do work and have to keep an eye on the thecnical stuff on our websites. There will also be alot of prototyping involved to, to get the printer I am looking for.
Here is a list of what is going onto this printer.
4 x 500mm MGN 12 Linear Rails
3 x 450mm MGN 12 Linear Rails
Radds 32-bit Controller and expansion board
Radds Smart controller lcd
RAPS128 Stepper Drivers running at 128 micro steps
Custom electronics housing with improved printer feet.
Complete redesign of the gantry to accomodatethe linear rails.
Plus anything else that I think of during the build.
The most important thing the STL Files for this build will only be uploaded to this site.
You are welcome to make changes to the files however any changes can only be posted on our forum.
All the cad work is done with Sketchup, and Sketchup .skp files will be included if you need to change files.
I have now added the files for the frame for everyone to download.
Hi - you wrote: "So I have created a special section on our forum to create a build log..." - but I cannot find this section in the forum. Do you have a link or hint?
Finally got around to installing the motherboard for the x5s that i got off you. Works but it has a problem. Thought it was a glitch but it does this every time. Tell it to print and it drops the print bed down to the bottom of the printer. Then starts the print. Have found the reverse directions in there chitu g explained. What i seem to be having a problem with is getting into the motherboard to change it. No longer remember how to do it and what the procedure is. Do remember it has to do with Arduino and some bed but can't seem to find the route or i am just not understanding the procedure. A little help would be appreciated so i can get the printer bed back up to the top where it is supposed to be. Thanks. Also if you get this in here that is because your contact tab and program doesn't like me and refused to send this. Sorry about this and that.
You do not connect to the firmware at all you can do a gcode file with the needed changes and save code run as print then reboot printer and done.
