This page describes how to print the parts for RepRapPro's Huxley.

In addition to the parts listed and described here, you will also have to print one extruder. Follow this link to find how to print that.

Design files you will need

To print the printed parts for the extruder drive you need the files that are on Github here: To get all the files click the


download button on that page.

Unzip the resulting file somewhere on your computer and move to the folder .....Huxley/Print-Huxley/Individual-STLs. There you will find the files:

Printing a Huxley

As you can see above, the file names have the number of each item off that you need to print to make one RepRapPro Huxley incorporated in their names. Any file that that has a name that doesn't end with "...Noff.stl" does not need to be printed. They are just provided for convenience in bed layouts and so on.

This pictures show the parts arranged in two sets (or trays) on the build bed of a RepRapPro Mono or Tricolour Mendel, but you can print them individually or in groups on virtually any 3D printer. (The only printers known not to work are Z Corp powder printers - their parts are too weak.) On A RepRap or similar FFF-type printer you can print the parts with a nozzle of 0.5mm diameter or finer. The only exception are the two pulleys, which need an 0.3mm or finer nozzle.

If you want to change the design, the source files are in various other folders in the root Huxley folder.
