X-axis mounted

November 20th, 2011 No comments

As you know I’m using the DELTRON Linear LRS3-1. It is wider than the Bosch frame ( 40mm ) and it is not in the center of the printer. I have mounted it with only two of the 4 bolts.  Loosen the two nuts and slide the X axis extrusion straight down. Clamp you slide and mark, and drill your pilot holes. Drill with 4.5mm drill bit and tap with a 5mm thread. I used a 20mm Inbus to bolt it to the extrusion and fasten it to the frame.

 

Ok, I’ll do this  to save another post with corrections:

I replaced the motor that is in the above pictures with another I had on hand:

The reason being, that last night when I hooked up the stepper drivers it was underpowered and stalled after numerous attempts to tune the motors. Also after a brief period of correct tuning I tested  some macro in Mach3 and the motor got very hot, very quick. So it was not meant to be.

The new one performed perfectly right off the start.
