Frame completed

A project log for Printrbot 'SuperSize Me" Mod

Transforming the humble 150x150x150mm stock print bed of a printrbot simple metal to a whopping 500x500x150mm 01/28/2016 at 19:030 Comments

For my frame corner fastening method I opted for single nuts (2 per corner) inset in a 3d printed corner bit and external bolts that tighten against the back wall of the aluminum channel.

Longer bolts attach the aluminum channel frame to the nose of the stock printrbot body. I put a blocking shim between the frame and body to provide a larger surface to spread forces upon.

I may put a block in the channel for rigidity and stability of the interface of the body and frame.

Other bits to develop include some sort of mount for the power supply and a spool holder.
