TAZ dual extruder mod files

Post by 1013 » Wed Jun 19, 2013 7:59 pm

original design discusion from here: http://forum.lulzbot.com/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=66 I will try to use this thread specifically for the files and instructions.

I just put up the files on thingiverse.
http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:106147



and I will see if I can attach them here too. 3 total files, the mount, the adjustment block, and modified wades extruder housing (2 of these needed).

DOH....STL's are not allowed for upload...trying zips.

UPDATE 6-25-2013: Added Supported motor moved extruder files for easier printing.

Parasolid files (.X_T) are only viewable by very expensive proprietary (commercial) software. Supplying your files in STEP (.stp) which is an ISO standard would make them more accessible. They could be imported into open source software such as FreeCAD, Heekscad, and possibly BRL-CAD.

Even though Solid Edge STEP export is awful at least it's something.

good point, I will use step files instead of parasolids.

DONE.

Thanks! All three STEP files checked fine in FreeCAD.

thanks to lulzbot for providing the model files, so I could do this mod.

I also have a mod that gives 12mm of extra X axis travel, and some strengthened parts that may help with the x axis belt slipping off (The green parts in the picture above)

You're dual extruder is really impressive!

I'm trying to figure out which parts of the Gregs Wade extruder I need to print for both extruders. Can you post which parts you used? Did you use jonaskuehling_gregs-wade-v3_mirrored_repaired.stl?

I'm assuming the files are in http://devel.lulzbot.com/TAZ/printed_parts/main_fleet/ or http://download.lulzbot.com/TAZ/hardware/printed_parts/

Thanks!

and of course the heringbone gears.

and I added these links to thingiverse.

Thanks! That's perfect.

When I load your STLs in Slic3r, they are really small - what scale should they be printed at? The ones on this forum and Thingiverse are the same tiny size.
