So many pieces!

Recommended Posts

the online wiki is very good and pay good attention to the orientation of your parts when you assemble them !

Everything should click together nicely... Be extra careful about assenblying the wood parts of the hotend... there are two that are very delicate !

But... we are always here willing to help :-)

Yeah sorry, it is an UM1. I got it going. Just a little more daunting than I thought. Just put the ulticontroller together. Even have the doodle3d working on my network.

This was from last night:

No, it was ALL day with some started the night before.... Probably equivalent to three evenings depending on how much time is an "evening". I've guessing took me something like 18 hours. I have a bad back and poor workspace so probably took 30% longer than it should have.... And I really need to put tools away so I don't spend 30 minutes looking for a damn hammer.

What the hell? You put the whole thing together in one day? It took me at least 3 evenings (I forget).


That's because you didn't drink a coffee when the assembly instructions indicated... :wink:

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
