    This is a 3D printer build that strings off the concepts and ideas in the VORON printer, but due to salvaging all my existing hardware off my old timber printer I am going to modify and adapt it to utilise those parts...

    Frame: 2020 T-Slot (440mm X 440mm X 510mm)
    Hotend: E3D Lite6 V6 Kit
    Shafts: 10mm Rods and LM10UU bearings
    Threaded Rod: M8 Stainless Rod

    Others:
    - Aluminium Heated Bed
    - DELL 12V 19A power supply
    - Ramps 1.4 Board
    - GT2 Belts and Idlers
    - NEMA17 Motors
    - CoreXY
    - Custom Z-Axis
    - Inductive bed levelling
    - LED strip lighting
    - Boxed enclosure

    Heres the first batch of build pics, will update as i go along over the next few weeks...

    Day Two:

    Started working on the extrusions now they are cut to size, threaded the ends with and M6 tap (was hoping for M5 but the extrusions have a 5mm hole so had to go M6)

    Which led to the first issue of the M6 button screws not fitting into the aluminium corner cubes...

    [​IMG]

    Ended up having to grind down the tops a bit and found that just edging the sides and putting them all in while loose worked the best.

    [​IMG]

    Once that worked, finished putting together the extruded cube ready for the first measure and mockup

    Spent the rest of the day getting the Laser cutter back up and running so i can cut some mock up parts so stay tuned for more soon.

    Nice work!
    Did you buy the 2020 T-Slot in sydney? I'm after one...

    Day Three:

    Started with some conceptual cuts for the AB axis...

    [​IMG]

    Took that to MDF and then test fit was quite successful, few changes to make but mounts solid and clears the side to allow panels to enclose the printer

    [​IMG]

    (remember this is upside down at the moment)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And with the Z axis bracket inserted, still allows for 400mm Z height (will be a bit less when the bearings go on)

    [​IMG]

    So now just making some adjustments to the CAD drawings and will recut the final brackets tomorrow.

    wohoo :D just finished mocking up the Y-axis and it looks like i will be able to get just over 300mm of travel with the steppers fitted :)

    should be able to get about the same from the X-axis and theoretically i can get about 370mm height out of the Z-axis but will be less with the drivers and PSU fitted at the bottom.

    Has been a little while between updates, after playing with some designs, I had to order some different length screws for assembly as well as some additional corner brackets. They arrived this morning.

    Here was a quick one of the first design idea that I eventually scrapped and came up with a better solution that I will get assembled this weekend hopefully.

    With this design I was going to lose about 50mm of travel at each end of the Y-axis, with the new design, I think I have it down to hopefully around 30-50mm total if all goes well so a theoretical Y-movement of close to 350mm with the width of the X carriage which is next to be designed...

    Been a bit of a slow project, a mix of work and waiting for parts from china getting in the way...

    CAD revisions coming along for gantry design pretty finalised now.

    more assembly on the weekend hopefully...

    Long time coming, first print complete and its quieter than my Dyson fan AND better than a print I ever got from my i3 inspired previous printer!!! wow, very impressed!



    [​IMG]

    And you can see here, Marvin wet himself he was so excited!

    [​IMG]

    - no endstops, eyeballed Z height zero and level
    - E3D Lite6 0.4mm end
    - no print fan
    - Slic3r default settings
    - 0.3mm layer height
    - 2 year old PLA been sitting in air in garage

    plenty of room for improvement now!

    So, been a long time coming but it is finally running smoothly and converted across from the original MDF laser cut design, It is now a 10mm variant of a VORON knighted V025 on /r.

    Future Updates:

    - Jumped on the Kickstarter campaign for the Re-ARM board to convert the Arduino to a Smoothieboard with my RAMPS on December order :)

    - Got a full E3D V6 to replace the E3D Lite6, altho it has been printing ABS non-stop at 240deg, 50mm/s with no hassles thus far.

    - and got 6mm MIC-6 + PEI Aluminium plate and a 500W 240V silicon heater to go on in the next few weeks :) (getting sick of the 10 minute warm ups)

    [​IMG]



    This arvo I jumped on CAD and designed and printed a new concept for ABL with the nozzle from looking at the new VORON design coming out in his v1.5 but in 10mm and for single extruder...

    Nice build Oricle,

    I am Just getting into 3d printing, and missed out on the Aldi deal. I not you have build the Voron and the Hypercube, which of these two was easier to build and source parts in Sydney/Aus? And what is the rough cost to build these? My friend and I are planning to get something jointly, mostly to print parts and accessories for our main hobby Astronomy.

    HyperCube for sure, voron is nice but fiddly, cube parts are pretty easy to source off eBay or even locally (the guy that designed it is Aussie)

    Not sure on cost, I have a habit of buying bulk amounts of parts and had some parts from previous printers I used, maybe around 5/600 if you did it conservatively, probably even a bit less...I'd have to think through the parts, better value for $ if your able to build yourself tho IMO
