[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In late March 2016, I decided to look for a printer to make larger PLA objects than the M3D could handle. So, I did a lot of research, and decided to try building a Prusa i3 based machine.
I ordered it from AliExpress and it arrived from China in just 9 days (thanks FedEx Express free shipping).
As I started to use this printer, I quickly found some of the limitations of a low cost printer kit.
Some of the upgrades and additions that I have made for my printer are:
Y-axis Stepper Support:
Power Supply Spacer:
LCD Case – to mount the LCD on the front of the printer:
Bed Levelling Thumb Wheels:
Compact Bowden Extruder:
X-Carriage Main Body:
X-Carriage Extruder Holder:
Currently in Progress:
Adjustable Z Axis End Stop:
Control Board Cooling Fan Mount:
Bowden Side Mount:
Power Supply Switch Module:
Extruder Support with Proximity Probe Holder:
