Tools and Parts List
Here are the list of parts needed to follow the DIY 3D printer build tutorial.
Parts list for 3D printer
Below is parts list that you need to assemble 3D printer, what is shown in Step by Step instructions page. You can always make changes and modify parts accordingly your own needs.
For example Pärnu school ordered wrong heatbed (20x20 cm they got 30x30 cm). Nothing wasn't very wrong, but they also had to make adjustments for their 3D dawings.
Example 2: in the list below there is 12V heatbed and printhead (nozzle). That is ok, but other option is 24V. Then you should use 24V capable parts- heatbed, nozzle head and 220V to 24V power unit.
Tools to DIY 3D printer
Here you can find a list of tools you need to assemble 3D printer.
good planning - "measure 9 times and cut once" or was it "cut 9 times and there is nothing to cut anymore" 🙂
hacksaw/angle grinder - depends how you can purchase your Al profiles witch you use on your printer frame.
big tesk/working area - you have to turn printer in every direction
patience - the more precise you can assemble parts, the less tolerances = better quality your future prints will have.
cordless drill and drillbit - 3 to 16 mm. When you are manufacturing your designed 3D parts, you need some post-processing.
digital voltmeter - to check all wiring before turning machine on. Mission "boom avoid" 🙂
IPA (isopropyl alcohol) - to clean heatbeds
carpet knife - mainly for post- processing
computer- vith USB and at least 8GB RAM. You should be able to use Slicer programs and some CAD programs.
3D printer - you must be able to print out printable palstic parts.
SD card reader - all printers use SD cards to print files. Your computer should have SD card reader or adapter to be able to read that.
engineering know-how - you should understand what, where and how it will affect yout 3D printer. Hard way is to find it out using trial and error method or be clever and learn from mistakes made by other people. For that you can use multible web- and community pages.
some mechanical and electonical skills- everything is quite basic and there should not be any problems. Electrical is important, because you use DC current and thatswhy polarity for wires is important.
