Assembly of my little Hugo

by JSturm

[Some parts are no longer current view. The Prinuip remains the same]

This Hugo was built around the red heater bed and has a printable area of ​​16cm x 16cm.

First, the X-glands are composed of H-Base loose.

In contrast to the "PrintrBot" goes to the bottom two bars, an additional brace for better stability.

Unlike the "PrintrBot" is attached the deflection of the toothed belt so that the belt runs centrally to the pressure bed.

Then, the linear bearings and Endstops on the Y-axis are mounted. The cable tie loosely tighten the bearings and the cutting off the protruding end is not cut too close to the shutter so that you can touch the belt and tighten it again later.

In contrast to the "PrintrBot" are the fortifications of the Y-Endstops on the H-base with cultivated.

The front end stop for the "home" position of responsibility and imperative. Whether the other two end stops are required is up-to the builder to decide.


'Note': I check all the holes and openings with a suitable drill. It often happens that a small. Piece of material in the hole / in the hole is. This happens, for example, the layer change. It is easier to remove it before rather than later on the object.

Next, I build the basic structure loosely, and I prefer the screw on the left to determine, because I get to that later ran very hard.

The engine of the Y-timing belt I also attach permanently, along with the pulley. The teeth of the pulleys should be at the same height as the deflecting-ball bearing.

The screws on the right side, I prefer to only loosely, because then later I adjust the spacing of the pressure Gliding bed. The Zahnriemenumlenker (HY-BeltDivert) is the current state only loosely attached.


Now the two sliding bars of the bed pressure coming into the bearings. Please check to see if the rods easily run into the camp.


Now I mount the finished print bed carefully drilled at the slide bars. It constantly check whether the rods can be moved easily. If necessary, the threaded rods of the backbone readjust.


I adjust the HY-BeltDivert so that the toothed belt centrally to the pressure plate and runs parallell to the slide bars.

Then I fasten the belt to the Y-HY-BeltClamp (or HY-BeltClamp_alternativ). Warning, the two parts are not interchangeable, since the distances of the mounting holes is different.

So before deciding which option you want to use.

Now I flex with the clamping device provided the timing belt. When using the HY-BeltClamp_alternativ move I flex the belt by lightly of the deflection rollers (HY-BeltDivert) on the threaded rod.


'To be continued'

Here you can see beautiful, as everything is close.
