With the development of 3D printing technology, 3D printers are widely used in transportation, industry, education, and animation. As an emerging 3d printing technology, 3d printing technology has unparalleled advantages.

It has given unlimited vitality to traditional production, and it has been included in the “Made in China 20215” by the country, and courses have been opened in various universities, showing the magic of 3D printing technology. Almost everyone wants to own a 3D printer, but feels embarrassed in their pockets. The following is a detailed introduction to the DIY 3d printer safety tutorial.

1.Need DIY3d printer parts:

First of all, we need to DIY structural parts, such as screws, sliding rod guides, various types of nuts, screws and other parts. Secondly, we are equipped with a set of plastic parts; the power part is the most important part of it, we need 42 steps to improve the four motors, Gt2 transmission timing belt 3gt synchronous wheel x3, gear 16 teeth, placed on the motor; F623ZZ flange 6 bearings; 608 bearings x1, mainly used for wire feeding.

The bite wheel x1 is best knurled bottom with extrusion head 1.75mm/3mm, with a cooling fan and several sets of 3D printing materials. In the circuit board part, we need arduinomega2560 x 1 piece of 50RMB, the ramps1.4 expansion board used by mega2560 x 1 piece of 20RMB, A4988 stepper motor driver board x 4 pieces of 6RMB x 4, 12V power supply current greater than 6A x 1, three pieces of 60cm length Timber, there is still a pulley, that is, you can install a DIY 3d printer.

2.Steps of assembling a DIY3d printer:

Many people feel that they are not professional technicians and it is difficult to assemble a complete DIY 3d printer, so they give up halfway. Assembling a simple DIY 3d printer mentioned here does not need to be too complicated at all. If you don’t do the following, you can get a good DIY rapid prototyping machine.

The first part of the pre-assembly preparation:


  1. Prepare plastic materials

  2. When we assemble the 3D printer, we must install the acrylic frame.

  3. Enclose the three pieces of wood and other materials into a triangular prism. The three pieces of wood must form an equilateral triangle. For the bottom here, I used the base of the flower pot. The editor here is a friendly reminder, because we are a 3D printer, all data must be calculated and accurately measured.

  4. When the power supply is available, you can add a 10A power supply.

  5. Then install the synchronization wheel and extrusion wheel.

  6. Then install the effector on the extrusion head.

  7. Then make the pulley and install it with a belt of appropriate length.

  8. Then in making the joint arm, the detailed operation is as shown in the figure below.

  9. Finally install the power motor

  10. To install the pulley and the effector, install the pulley on the top of the three shafts.

    The second part of the assembly process:


    1. Then install the limit switch to the highest point of the stroke of the three pulleys, and keep the three limit switches on the same level. I use a normally closed switch, if it is normally open, it needs to be modified in the firmware.

    2. In order to prevent the trolley from shaking and protect the peace of the 3D printer, I found 3 plastic cards to replace the solution in kossel800. The card was made into a slider and fixed with the trolley.

    3. In this way, a DIY3d printer is successfully assembled. The reminder is to put a piece of glass on the bottom.

    Finally, you can try to buy these equipments and assemble them according to the above methods, and you will have an unexpected pleasure. Of course, to print high-precision models, you still have to choose the whole machine to facilitate rapid prototyping.
