@p1ngb4ck said in Need help : MagBalls+Smart-Effector for AC LinearKosselPlus:
I could use some assistance, regarding a modified Anycubic Linear Kossel Plus Delta, that I bought in used, modified state. It already has a Duet2 Maestro and I have been able to print with it already (went through the very informative Guides).
Now I would to upgrade to Haydn Huntleys MagBallArms and Smart-Effector, the printer currently still uses stock rods, rod-ends and effector(with hotend). Also : is there anything that would speak against using a volcano hotend with the smart-effector ?
Are there any users, who have done the same and could provide exact info regarding required rod-length, correct rod-spacing etc. and good stls to mount proper radial fans and 40mm cold-end fans?
BTW : duet3d.com down?
Best regards & thx in advance, Oliver
Hi, I too have a ALKP delta. On mine the only parts remaining are the 2020 profiles, linear rails + linear slide bearings, motors and the belts. Everything else I have replaced including the undersized wire that was shipped with my printer.
My AnyPubic Linear Crapper printer's current physical configuration is:
DUET-EtherNet V1.02 controller (excellent) (TriGorilla brd caught fire & burned after 1 week of usage, vendor said was my fault)
SmartEffector + E3D-V6 HotEnd (excellent) (original HotEnd constantly jammed)
7inch PanelDue (useful)
288.13 mm Hayden diagonal rods & magballs (excellent) (original 12 rod-end bearings were sloppy loose; diagonal rods were different lengths)
450W SSR for switching heatbed (bed was not shipped with my printer, I bought it from different vendor)
350W 'LED' switching 12Vdc power-supply (replaced tiny power supply)
Opto Interrupter endstops (replaced original micro-switches end-stops that switched at different positions, randomly)
top & botom metal corner vertex (original injected molded corners were mishaped)
soon to be mounted (when arrives) BondTech BGM 1.75mm Bowden tube extruder + PanCake 0.9º stepper motor
As I have said before, the AKLP as shipped to me was fun to build but that is where the fun stopped. As designed and delivered to me, the printer was incapable of printing as it was uncalibratable. I have an e-mail from AnyCubic factory, that states, "buy our new model, it fixes all the problems you are having!!" I kid you not.
Regarding your bed size, measure it then make your calculations.
I have a minor printing artifact that I am working to resolve, beyond that my homebrew AnyPubic is working great now! Get the Haydens, you'll like'm. I don't know about the E3D Volcano, but the V6 I have works well in my opinion.
