FLSUN Cube 3D printer Assembly Day #1

Last week I sold of my Flashforge Dreamer and decided to look for a replacement, I was planning to buy the Tevo Tarantula Kits, but after browsing around I stumbled across the new FLSUN large (FLSUN Cube)build volume print, compare to the Tevo it seem this one have a more rigid structure with almost like corexy setup, plus did I mention is big? and so I ordered one via Aliexpress App and to my luck is was on sales.

Here some specs of the printer:

 

I have to give some credit to the seller for the very prompt respond and shipping, Ordered on Thursday and on Tuesday I got the printer, that was some fast shipping from china to Malaysia

 

 

 

Some Unboxing, the box come with a little damages but upon inception I don’t see any broken part so it good, so full mark with the packaging here

Some picture of the contain, very well packed and organize

I started the build last night but only manage to finish the frame for now, more to come!

 

To Be continued…

Blomker Mendelmax 1.5 3D Printer BuildLog Part 3 (Completed)

Finally a fully functional Reprap 3D printer, got my crucial part for cleaning up my wiring which is a acrylic plate, cleaned up my wiring nice and tidy now :), for previous post

20140530_225313everything wrap up nicely now no more messy cable dangling around

20140530_225116 20140530_224953printer still need some calibration, initial Slic3r setting seem close enough printing 20×20 cube yield 20.x result which is acceptable for me

20140530_225538

here few thing that I have printed after the calibration,

attached nicely to the printer :)

Some Keychain made using thinkercad which have my HAM callsign 9W2DLR :)20140529_155906

XT60 battery cap, this was actually my first print and get me realize that my Y axis are inverted :p20140529_000359

 

Overall it a fun build and straight forward, I still waiting for my LCD controller so I don’t need to have my laptop connected to the RAMPS when printing which is sometime will take 12 hours! :)

I tried to print Zam Kossel part but 20 minutes before completion whole house when blackout! the print almost take 5 hours but failed at the end but I think I can still use the part

20140530_225047more to come, hopefully can do some video showing the printer printing :)

Stay tuned

 

 

 

 

Blomker Mendelmax 1.5 3D Printer BuildLog Part 2

Another update of my Mendelmax Build, Part 1 can be found here Mendelmax 1.5 3D Printer BuildLog Part 1

Originally the extruder drive is installed like this but I don’t like to see the cable poking like that, What I did was I just rotated it 90 degree problem solve :D

20140527_191621

after rotated

20140527_191854

next is fixing the loose hotend, Mr, Bayer suggested to put a M8 washer between the hotend/extruder but unfortunately the  M8 washer a slightly bigger than the hole of the hotend, but lucky enough if you an RC and have these at your disposal

20140527_190856

I taken the motor mount from the small brushless motor, take my dremel and grind it flat! presto you have a perfect fit washer which solve my loose hotend problem :)

20140527_190630

nice fit in the extruder

20140527_190648

Perfect fit!

20140527_190752

 

this the fun part, software and electronics testing, I’m using repetier-host for my software for now until my LCD controller arrive, wiring still a mess as I need to test the RAMPS1.4 first before tidying up everything,

20140527_215338

when sending my XYZ to home I just realize that my machine is backward lol! look like I have to fix that later and also need to move my spool holder to the back of the printer, plus need to re-route the extruder fans/hotend cable to the back too

20140528_082050Kapton tape! ensential vitamin when dealing with 3D printer

20140527_195939

Because it was late I was not able to finish software testing only manage to test my end stop are working perfectly fine, more to come stay tune!

 

Blomker Mendelmax 1.5 3D Printer BuildLog Part 1

After doing a lot of research and selling of my 3020 CNC machine and with courtesy of my lovely wife for allowing me to buy one :D I finally bought a 3D printer from Blomker, Mr. Bayer was kind enough to do cash on delivery at Bukit Kiara with no extra charge :cayo: kudos to him,here is my partially build log I was only motivated taking picture for the first 30 minutes later in the build I totally forgot to snap anymore pictures  :33:

more about blomker can be found here blomker.com

Look like an ordinary box but beware a self replicating machine is in it  :07:

Unboxing the stuff everything was pack rather nicely

20140524_204729 20140524_204739

heating bed Mk2a, Mr. Bayer also kind enough to provide me the 200×200 glass bed for it :)

20140524_204815

3D printed plastic part, Mendelmax used 20×20 aluminuim extrusion which is easy to source here in malaysia

Nema 17 Stepper motors the one with plastic part is for the extruder

20140524_205728

Green Florescent PLA 1.75mm, My hotend is 0.4mm

20140524_204445

Let start assembling, first we need to assemble the base of the frame

20140525_100635 20140525_100813 20140525_111242

and from here on I totally ditch my camera and concentrate on the build :D, 5 hours later I have this weird looking contraction on my desk, I still need to do some wiring for the electronic and soldering as for now I’m pretty excited to finally own a 3d printer, More to come on part 2

PS: the white hose are the remnant of my cnc vacuum dust collector which remind me to take it of after this
