    I've owned my Flsun Prusa i3 clone for a few months now, and know enough about 3d printing to start a scratch build. I've seen quite a few different designs out there but the corexy design seems like a solid system.

    I've ordered a bunch of parts from China and will eventually salvage the controller, motors and some 2020 extrusion from the flsun to complete the HC300.

    There's about 40 pieces to print as well so while I'm getting those finished I should start seeing some of the orders come in.


    Here's the design of the specific printer I'm making.

    20180707_153342.jpg I brought home some prebent aluminum from work and will be using it to make a box to house the electronics, wiring and power supply. The extra piece across the front is to create the clearance for a LCD display, power and lighting rocker switches, and two 80mm fans.

    Today I cut, drilled and attached the aluminum plate to the extrusions, and started printing parts for the eventual assembly.

    Will do. Lots of waiting for parts, is where I'm at now. I'm designing a 2:1 reduction, dual belt, single motor z axis system at the moment. I'll post more when I've got something to show for it. ;) I might try to adapt a magnetic dual parking extruder carrier system for it as well.

    Screws, hammer nuts, y axis 8mm ss rods, x axis carbon fiber rods and assisted other parts arrived this week. I've got the frame partially assembled. I'll have some pics tonight.

    20180712_182707.jpg Built the frame, installed the X/Y axis rods and motor mounts. I'm still waiting on a 128x64 LCD screen before I design and print the front plate. It'll have 2x 80mm fans, screen, and switches for power and lighting.
