The complete plastic kit to build a RepRap#Resco.The kit is unreamed, so the parts can need little post-processing. All parts are made of ABS (stronger and heat resistant than PLA) printed on a RepRap#Resco using 0.4mm layer height (the two X and Y axis pulley are printed with 0.3mm layer height for better accuracy).
The kit contains:
- 4 x frame-vertex-with-foot
- 2 x frame-vertex-without-foot
- 8 x bar-clamp
- 2 x belt-clamp
- 2 x x-carriage-belt-clamp
- 2 x z-coupling
- 3 x endstop-holder
- 1 x sanguinololu-holder
- 3 x bearing-holder
- 2 x pulley
- 2 x rod-clamp
- 1 x Greg's Hinged Accessible Extruder (mendelparts v6 mount)
- 1 x x-carriage
- 1 x x-motor-end
- 1 x x-idle-end
- 1 x y-motor-bracket
- 2 x z-motor-mount
- 3 x y-axis-lm8uu-holder
- 1 x z-stop-regulation
The frame vertex with foot made the lower part of the Prusa structure.
The frame vertex without foot made the upper part of the Prusa structure.
Bar clamp are used to fasten together the Prusa threaded bars and smooth rods.
The x motor end has multiple functions: carry the x axis motor, fasten the two x axis smooth rods, support two LM8UU bearings for one z axis smooth rod and contains the nuts for one z axis threaded bar. We made some little modification to the original design:
- added two "wings" to the LM8UU support part to make it stronger
- choosed an old version system for the smooth bars fastening: it's easier to assemble/disasseble and the bars don't have to be cut to the exact size
The x idle end is the equivalent of the x motor end. Instead of carry the x motor it supports the x belt idler pulley. We made to this part the same modification made to x motor end.
The y plate slide over 3 lm8uu bearings. Only three bearings are needed to fully constraint and axis. The y axis lm8uu holder is kept in place by two screw and using a plastic strip fix one lm8uu bearing.
