3D Printer Part 4

Pack 4 contains some rods and pulleys for the build.

The first step was to put one of the timing pulleys into the left Y-axis rod.

Next a slider is added to rod.

With the slider on the rod a second longer pulley is added to the other end.

Three pulley belts are then added to the rod and the rod is secure into the 3D printers case. A bearing sits at each end of the rod and is held in place with a screw at each end.

This part ends with the preparation of the right hand y axis rod. I am really enjoying this build so far. It’s great to build something like this as you can get to know what every part does and how to fix it.
