I present you, my project for the Prusa "#pimpmyprusa" competition.
The idea starts from the assumption that every proud owner of a Prusa 3d Printer, sooner or later wants to modify it for his own personal use. LED, CAM, Switches, are some of the additions that each of us has already, or at least has thought, to make to their printer.
But the first question that comes to mind is, I think, "Where can I install my idea on the printer?"
That's why I redesigned the two X-end pieces to allow you to add the parts you want to have here.
I thought of a modular system that allowed me to add more parts to the right or left of the extruder (X-End) and giving me the opportunity to remove them when I'm not using them.
In the files I added my switch for the Bluetooth remote control, operated by moving the extruder, at the end of each layer, to the right. Gcode edit nedded. The remote control operates the camera of the mobile phone which then takes a picture of the object I am printing. So, once you have converted the photos into a video, you will have a beautiful timelapse of your creations.
Here you can see mine;)
I have already designed some parts for X-MOD like corners and extensions. But everyone can draw the support that most needs.
I like to think that Jo came to mind the same thing that I'm thinking of now, that is, add a 3D scanner connected to the two X-Ends.
Do you believe it can work?
