Its Arrived! The Ordbot 3d Printer is here and ready to go!
Its open source, its simple, its cheap - lightning fast and its here - packaged into a ready to go kit.
Now with a larger build volume upgrade option of 250x250 or 300x300mm!!
Everything you need to build and print is included in this kit. We wont have you scouring the internet and waiting weeks for that one part which should have been included! Everything is in here - right down to a roll of ABS filament... you should not have to leave your study until its printing its first part!
We have gone one step further and reconfigured our kits to use acme threads on the Z axis
What's included.... ahhh everything!
- Base mechanical kit - retailing elsewhere for $550-$699 alone with half the parts below not included
- 5 * Nema 17 Motors (612 oz in)
- Extruder and Hot end (choice of two models)
- Heat Bed
- Glass or aluminium print surface
- Ramps 1.4 Controller
- Arduino Mega 2560
- 5 stepstick drivers
- LCD display
- Fan cover
- ABS box
- USB mount
- All required cabling and cable socks
- limit switches
- required holes in extrusion pre milled
- 8mm spring for cable management
- All belting and pulleys
- and a spool of ABS to get you printing ASAP!
Basically if you see it in the photos its in your kit, with the small exception of the blue 3D printed LCD enclosure... but you can put some of your ABS spool towards printing this one or making your own.
Personally I love this printer - I've been through a few before settling on the ordbot and am really happy with the decision. Its so over engineered for a 3d printer (being based on maker-slide) that there is no give in the frame and you can dial the speed up to completely unnecessary levels without inducing to much wobble.
It looks clean doesn't it almost too clean to be a reprap based open source design - nice work Bart! Where are all the wires? Hidden inside the extrusion and leading out to an electronics enclosure. There are so many ways to wire up a 3D printers - for a laugh click here to see what your printer should not look like if you take some time and set it up similar to the photos on show.
We have also produced a Ramps guide titled "Not Another RAMPS tutorial" to explain the electronics from a beginners point of view.
