I have been testing resin and beautifying the printer, BUT I need to do some useful work. Say "Hello" to the:
Just a simple bolt on job. A lot of things have not been as easy as this in a while.
1. Take a NEMA17 bipolar motor.
2. Find a motor mount ( flange is 42mm x 42mm with bolt pattern 31mmx31mm ) for NEMA17 ( I begged A LOT a friend of mine that was once going to build a CNC Mini Mill, but ended up only a "Spinner" ).
3. Bolt the motor to the flange and file down the bolts of the motor to be flush with flange.
4. Source a 4mm x 5mm motor coupler from Ebay and secure it to the motor shaft (5mm)
5. Get 4 M3 x 16mm bolts and bolt the flange with motor onto the THK linear.
6. Carefully place the linear and motor on the upright and stand back.
The pictures are in a new shade of pink - my wife likes them better that way. Right! Until I get back my camera from my wife I'll use an old Sony with the "pink" bug. Hope the female audience will be attracted to the project because of it.
