I will reserve this post for relevant discussion additions.
Please know that I have availability to some advanced tools. Most of this requirement can be brought down to simpler methods.
I encourage people to help others achieve such feats by helping to develop simpler methods of achieving the same thing.
We own the tools to do this. Printed solutions helps a lot!
This is an angle plate I used on my watchmaker's lathe/mill to get a 15 degree angle. M6 threads were to mount the vise were printed in the model!
This allows for very simple thread chaser, rather than a full blown tap. Thread chasers can be made with a simple screw and a Dremel cut-off wheel.
hi there, I did the same thing a while back but I do not know where to get the the proper tubing and metal screw thingys, got any ideas
All mine come from eBay. Bowden tubing 4mm PD 2mm ID PTFE [Teflon]; PC4M5 is the fitting code you want.
Also find me on Thingiverse as 'Qube3Bot' - printable solutions A-Z.
Thanks for reaching out. Come join the Print3Dforum.com and find treasures for your Cube 3 printer.
hi thanx for the reply I might have made a boo boo, I already ordered the kit, BUT I ordered
PC4-M6 Pneumatic Straight Fitting 4mm OD tubing M6 Reprap 3D Printer Bowden Tube, I hope that will work it's for a cube 3......thank you for your help!! chris
I chose M5 for the tighter thread pitch. M6 will work fine.
I have 2 new in box original cubes I have attempted to use them and it is just too much trouble. I plan on converting to ramps boards and was going to sort out how to use the cartridges. is there a simple way to flash the existing board with something that will let the cartridges be reused? I liked the mod you did and that would be one I would do. Thanks for this idea and if you have any info on my question thanks in advance.
