P3Steel Build Log (#19) – Installing All Connections to RAMPS

By ChunkySteveo,

The RAMPS board is going to get very cramps, very quickly. It’s well designed and thought out in terms of layout, but as you add more and more connections to it, it’s going to get hidden beneath a nest of wires, connections, crimps and fans – say goodbye to your lovely clean clear red board!

P3Steel Build Log (#14) – Heated Bed / Build Plate

By ChunkySteveo,

When building a 3D printer, there are lots of options you can go with for a build platform, and whether to have it heated or not. I will not go into all of them, but simply state what I am going to use compared to Toolson’s designs.

The middle “sticky-outy” part seen below  … Read more

P3Steel Build Log (#06) – Y-axis Carriage Clamps

By chunkyadmin,

Bronze Bushings or LM8UU Bearings The standard Prusa builds (and most other 3D Printers, CNCs, engravers etc) use LMU88 linear bearings for all linear rod movements. They are the go to part when you use 8mm smooth rod as your axis guides and are cheap, easy to use and readily available. The quality of these  … Read more
