    Finished building my VoxelOx. I have to add extra Alu Profile below the Y axis front and backside as with printed supports, they were simply not enough and gave me ringing artifacts when printing 80mms or above. The stock Z rod nuts introduced mirroring on the Zrods quality

    Go over to Thingyverse and click on any design. A 3D printing service will be on the page. They'll hook you up with a local printer.

    I got all the printed parts from www.protobuilds.com, (who is the original poster for the build). Life keeps getting in the way so I haven't started putting my build together yet but the parts I received look to be excellent quality and arrived in a timely manner.

    It took a couple of months, but I am nearly finished with my Ox build. Testing and calibrating before finishing the wiring and such. My first complicated test print came out way better than expected. IMG_1836.JPG IMG_1837.JPG

    Awesome build. I really like the simplicity. Are you using those steel clip belt tensioners? I'm told they really mess up 3d prints (atleast they did on my D-Bot Core XY). Also how are you keeping the nozzle leveled with the bed all the time?

    The Y axis has a belt tensioner built into the idler pulley block. The X axis I am tensioning manually. I am using manual bed leveling at the moment. Still a little way to go before I can call my build complete.

    Built my VoxelOX recently, opted for 3 V wheels on the carriages and 4 Solid style wheels on the plate. Performs really well. The most trouble i've had was calibrating my extruder, learnt many hard lessons about temperatures, extrusion multipliers and print speeds. I still need to wire in a blower fan as im getting blistering and internal sagging on my prints where the temperature isn't dropping quickly enough on each layer.
    Using a Smothieboard 4x and 24V PSU.

    If you want to go bigger you're gonna have to scale up the XYZ V-slots and belts and Threaded-rods by an extra 8 inches :)

    Does anyone know where i would get a 400x400mm heated bed, build plate and the power supply to run it? i may need to use a relay from the Ramps board i would think so i didnt burn it all up.
    I have had a 3d printer for a couple years now, then i bought a Hictop kit and things were always breaking, so i want to build myself a nice one with quality parts so it will last. My Wanhao Di3 fried the main board because the connectors on the board werent rated high enough for the heat bed. i sent that in for warranty. then my hictop power supply just instantly stopped working when i just got ninjaflex working perfectly.

    Robodigg has some larger heated plates and silicone matts.

    I am modifying my printer to utilize duel extrusion....but with only one hot end. I was an investor in a kickstarter project call Prometheus. I don't know if they ever shipped anything, but I got my money back and decided I could build the system myself and so I did. I just completed the high power Bowden extruders. They use a 5:1 geared stepper motor along with a very large gear. The extruders are aluminum and will mount on my x-axis carriage. They will move up and down with the Z axis so the Bowden tubing length is held to a minimum. The filament "V" guide is something I made so if you want the files, let me know.
