The main idea of this printer is to create a new design of a 3D printer with a cubic cartesian scheme which includes as many as possible parts from plastic. I.e. it supports the RepRap concept to create some kind of easy reproducible 3d printer to make it more achievable for a wide engineer society. One of the main concepts is that all plastic parts designed to be printed by one hotend 3d printer without using supports.

- Cubic construction – Strong and Stable
- The cubic construction is still to be the most strong construction that provides the best quality at the cheaper cost.
- Simple construction – The hotbed Z-axes are the part of the construction
- Four vertical cornels of cubic construction are the Z-axes of the hotbed. It decreases the number of parts and cost.
- The Hotbed can be increased – up to 240mm x 290mm
- The nominal hotbed is 220mm x 220mm. You can upgrade up to 240mm x 290mm.
- The Z-axis can be increased – up to 310mm
- The nominal Z-axis has a 310 mm length. You can upgrade up to 350mm.
- The belt connection is simple and confident.
- Almost all parts of construction made of plastic.
This is the first version that represents the nominal configuration. Several parts planned to be developed such as a cable holder, filament roller holders, ventilation system for hotends. The development of the GLKLN is hosted on the: GitHub.
files for the printed parts are available on the: GitHub.
Bill of Materials (BOM)
The updated version of the BOM can be downloaded from the project repository on the: GitHub
The GLKLN printer uses 6 stepper motors:
- 42BYGH40 motor - 2pcs, for X and Y axes.
- 42BYGH48 motor - 2pcs, for two extruders.
- 42BYGH34 motor - 2pcs, for Z-axis which is synchronized by connection to one Z-axis driver through Dual Z Stepper Motor Adapter.
A4988 Stepper Motor Driver With Heat sink is used for all motors. Each one configured for 1/16 subdividing step.
The nominal model of the GLKLN printer is based on the MKS-GEN L V1.0 motherboard. However, it can be used any other motherboard which supports the 6 motors and two extruders. The 2004 LCD Display RepRapDiscount Smart Controller is used for autonomy printer control.
V6 Dual Nozzle 2 In 2 Out Double Head with 3010 Fun.
HotBed is Aluminium 220mm x 220mm x 3mm.
The Filament holder under development and shall be added in the future. Currently, the filament can be put close to the feeders.
