What components are necessary?

Recommended Posts

Posted · What components are necessary?

Hello everyone,

Background Info:

I recently purchased a 3D Printer off of Kickstarter. The only problem I would have is the power supply. I don't find it safe or easy to setup. So then I thought, I could use the Ultimaker 1.5.7 board and just use a laptop power supply.

The Printer I bought:

The Question:

Would I have to buy the fan pack to cool down the board? Is their anything else I would need?

Thanks in advance,

Mohit

do you have a 1.5.7 laying around? Else it may be a lot cheaper to get f.e. a rumba...

Doesn't the rumba still need a PSU?

I was looking at Ultimaker 1.5.7 boards on eBay like this one:

And then I would get this power supply:

But when I was looking at some assembly videos online, I saw that there was a fan pack on top of the electronics board... is that needed? Also, would I need anything else?

Thanks!

I guess the stepper drivers on both need cooling, so no difference there. The rumba is probably the more flexible choice, easy to operate on 24 Volt, and has one more stepper driver so if you ever want triple extrusion ... I'm no expert, didn't try any of them jet, but was looking into the Rumba for a self build project I will do someday...
