Case for Rx Pro2 Plus
#31
Anyone into 3D printing might be interested in what my friend Russ Gries gets up too.
He built his own delta printer and has created attachments for it that make printed circuit boards by engraving them and just recently has a made a coil winder attachment.

Check him out here https://www.youtube.com/user/rwg42985 for a start Smile

Hi,
I plan to buy the Crealy Ender 3.
Some questions:
Are there any accessories that must be purchased immediately?
what type of filament do you recommend for the case?
how much filament is needed for a case?
How long does it take to print the case?
thank you in advance
Laurent

Hi,

You will get the best answers from Jarek.  Smile

But for now, at least, I have a brief reflection. If you buy it, you don't need anything but the filament.
It would be better to buy min. 1 kg of filament, Jarek recommends PLA. It is ecological (I mean from maize)
and relatively UV-resistant. I myself think that ABS is more weatherproof, but it is not UV-resistant
and harder to print. The actual amount you want the printer to tell you at the beginning of printing,
it depends a bit on the print settings. The quantity required is also reported on Thingiverse, but in this case
it is not. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3137127

When installing the kit, it is good (I'd like to say "important") to look at the video in advance, link from Jarek again:


And you might want to buy some extensions or improvements to the printer, there are a lot of them
on the Internet, some of them are very useful. E.g.: https://info.pcboard.ca/creality-ender-3/
Some can be printed alone, but some of them are better to buy straight, the price is low.

Good luck!
Best Regards
Zdenek

First - filament  Big Grin
Good filament, PLA.

Code:

I think - about 50g (?)

Pro Plus?  about 24h for all parts.

Hi jarekh3,

after your design and comments about the ender 3, I dived deeply into 3d printing.
I ordered an Ender 3X and upgraded it with dampers, TL smoothers, belt tensioners, damping feet, BL Touch (auto bed levelling), two cable chains, a self designed bed handle with a nozzle cleaner + a self designed filament runout sensor, added a Rasp Pi with OctoPI, created a dry filament box and flashed Marlin Firmware.
I am very happy with the printer and now I feel comfortable enough to print your housing Wink.

Could you please provide your settings to print? Am I right to assume, that you slice with cura?
Would it be possible, to provide a screenshot, or a summary of your slicer settings? Layer height, etc. Smile

Thanks in advance!

Hi t3gathome

I prefer the program Slic3r PE (I do not like Cura).
The parameters I use are typical:
-layer heigh: 0,16 - 0,20mm
-vertical shells: 3
-horizontal shells: 3
-infill: 25%
-detect thin walls => off
-speed: about 45mm/s
nothing unusual...

Quote:TL smoothers
Hmmm....

Quote:dampers

such?

As you pull the belt more tightly, the motor axis tilts.

Hi jarekh3,

thanks for your quick reply! I started with cura and tried to get the best out of it.
Rigth now I start playing around with Slic3r PE Smile Thanks for the hint!
Yes your settings are pretty normal e.g. 45mm/s speed is below the max of my 3X...
TL smoothers are pretty good for straight walls! (they are now in X/Y/E)
Yes indeed - exactly these dampers... I have them on X and Y. The motors' axis tilts a bit, you are right. As I am an engineer of mechatronics I also saw that Wink But I believe it is not having such a big impact. The belt has pretty much of space and the angle is okay in my opinion...! I had to print some extras to fit them with the standard end stop switches and reasonable mods.
I used these two:
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3245255
https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3271077
And I edited the "Ender_3_X-axis_endstop_cover..." to fit my camera mounting Big Grin
It can be found here:
