Very nice Doug  ~~

Some more pics of my build

I turned some new axles to suit the pulleys I bought  and then made up the wiring harnesses for the print head  and installed them,
I decided after to remove the outer sleeve from the network cables and spiral wrapped the wires all together it looks much better and doesnt feel as stiff  ~~

The build continues with the last of the wiring and build plate construction


     


Every thing powered up fine but there was a problem communicating with the board, although the printer fired up nothing was actually working not even the wifi,
I spent ages trying to work out what was wrong and even removed the board,
The weird thing was the board worked fine powered from an external psu when not in the printer, I re installed the board and there was still a problem but holding the usb cable in seemed to make every thing work  :shrug:

I was thinking faulty board maybe the 5v wasnt working and the usb was supplying it, Then I thought I will try reset but I couldnt press the button in and the red light
near the reset button was lit, so I unscrewed the front panel and bingo it homed and everthing started working as it should, the reset button was a tiny bit proud of the edge of the board and was being held in by the front panel, Ive posted a video below to show the problem, I drilled a bit of clearance in the back of the panel and all is good now

https://youtu.be/SuB9bzVMfeU

After sorting out the problems with the reset switch it was time to start setting it up with the very helpfull advice of my mate Doug on the phone,
He sent me a copy of his config.g file and we went through it and edited it to suit my printer,
Then came the time to run the auto cal hmmm brown trouser moment but all went well and with good results


   

I was going to wait for my nimble to arrive before testing the printer but I got up this morning looked at it and thought bugger it I'm fitting the e3d extruder kindly given to me by Sean  ~~

Anyway I loaded up a test file and set it off printing heres a short video of its very first print attempt

https://youtu.be/XEUiQxbN9eY

There was no print cooling so the top was bubbled and I left the shell thickness at .8 which didnt help but all in all it printed it very well for a first print  ~~

I would like to give Doug a huge thanks for his excellent adivce all the way through this build even though he has cost me a fortune  :rofl: cheers mate  :beer2:

when you home what happens to the filament do you get a birds nest :hmm:

Gaza07

No it just goes home I have a reverse bowden tube on it to prevent it tangling the filament, the bowden just keeps things tidy and the filament is pulled through it rather than pushed through  ~~

My little Anycubic delta has corner infills and I really like having the corners covered so Doug drew some corners in freecad and we set about test printing some to get the correct fit, after a few attempts we got it right (Thanks Doug your a star mate  ~~ ) and here is what the first one looks like in place  ~~
