Once again it is the time to reveal another project on which we were working in our workshop.... :)

 

This time we will combine 2 things into one housing. Our normal setup for 3d Printing is a powered by a PC which stands beside our 3d Printer...

 

Since the time we build our second Printer (already a big one) we wanted to go bigger. So we thought lets build the next Printer and combine the PC Hardware into the same enclosure.

 

The Printer itself will be a huge Corexy based Printer with max. 40*40*80 cm Printing size.

 

The PC Hardware will get a seperate Chamber...so that it won´t be affected from the heated bed.

 

We will built a custom watercooling loop for it and a lot of other features are also planned.

 

 

But let´s start with a few pictures:

 

The first one is a quick sketch we made...just to make sure we´re talking about the same things....that makes the communication a lot easier......

The first thing we made.....we printed a lot of connectors for the profiles which we will use to build our base frame.....

After printing all the connectors and parts which are needed to build the base frame (and the printer itself) we put all the things together so that we could see where we´re going to make changes....

You can see that we already put a mainbase in place ...just to check if it would fit there.....but you can get an imagination where we plan to attach the hardware.

 

After that we also started to cut out the first parts for the Housing.....

hehehe, jaja immer die gleichen Gesichter  :)  schön das du auch wieder am Start bist!

Ist aber ein neuer 3dler :D

 

Time for an update:
 
We continued the work on this build with the Top Part of the Housing, like one of the sides it will get a large window...so that we can see the printing process, beside that we plan to integrate a small compartment were we can store the filament rolls for the Printer....

After that we prepared the other 2 sidepanels and started to cut them out.....

from the backside of the printer it will look something like that....

time for the next update:

 

Last time we prepared the parts for the outer shell....so we continued our work with the attachements for the base frame. Up to now, we only build the printer chamber, so we had to add 2 parts for all the electronics and hardware.....

In the lower part we will mainly mount the PSUs, Radiators and stuff we don´t want to show....in the Upper Part we will add a multi spool holder for the 3d printing filament so that it is good reachable for changing spools or maybe later,  for a multicolor extruder.... 

 

After that we started to cut out the next "holes" in our front and backpanel....

With that done, we mounted everything again.....just to see in which direction we´re going to mount the hardware....take a few measurements etc....

...beside that we also choose the position for a small status display......marked the exact spot on all parts and started to make the needed cutouts....

In the last days the Mainboard for this project arrives, so we wanted to use the chance to send a big Thank You!!!! to Asus for their help & support!

ok, now we can continue.....

 

 

on the last update we already showed you the preparations for the small extra display....so we continued the work....and mounted it for the first time....that way we also could see in which way we´re going to cover the PCB from the inside.....

beside that we also prepared the next "small" piece for the printing chamber....just a small piece which should prevent the door (which will be added later) swing inside the printing chamber....

41.jpg

As next we make a few modifications on the mainboardtray so that it fits inside our plans.....

48.jpg

 

 

then we prepared a few covers for the Motors of the X/Y Axis so that they aren´t visible from the outside.....

ok, let´s continue this....

 

Atfer our last update we continued the work on the midplate, a few modifications had to be done, so that we could route all those cables from the PSU to the Mainboard...nearly invisible...

 

53.jpg

55.jpg

 

here you can see, how we are going to mount the 2 PSU´s inside the lower part of the chassis.....

54.jpg

 

the cover for the small extra display is also nearly finished.....

56.jpg

 

 

After finding the right positions for our PSUs we started with a cutout on the sidepanel.....so that the PSUs gets enough fresh air....

57.jpg

58.jpg

59.jpg

 

Both Radiators were also in their final position, so that we can continue the planning for the rigid tubing....cable ways and things like that....

60.jpg

67.jpg

 

then we prepared an opening in the midwall between the hardware and the printer part. It will be needed to route all cables from one part to the other...so that we can mount the printer electronics beside the PC Hardware....
