Description

Description

It was high time I build a brass insert press rig. There were several designs available on Printables and Thingiverse, but me being me, I had to design my own over-engineered version with the parts that I have at my disposal. I took inspiration from Adafruit's design.

After posting the make on a Facebook group, I got several requests for the stls. So here they are. Some things to note:

Files such as “rail_stop x4.stl" mean you will need to print 4 pieces.

All parts can be printed in PLA except “solder bracket.stl” which comes in contact with the soldering iron. It needs to be printed in ABS, ASA or at least PETG.

you can use cable tie to secure the belt to the Front and Rear brackets.

In the spirit of open source, I have add the STEP files for you to refer, edit and remix.

There is also a 3mf with the parts all placed for Bambu Lab printers.

Please note that the design choice was based on the items I have at hand.

Enjoy your build. that's all folks.

 

BOM

2020 aluminum profile (not v-slot) any length above 30cm will be good

Mgn9c linear rail (18-20cm) - 2sets

GT2 6mm belt (any cheap stuff will do)

GT2 20T m3 6mm idler - 1pcs

F623ZZ m3x10x4mm flanged bearings - 4pcs

There is a counterweight box “cw_box.stl" and ”cw_box lid.stl". You can extend the box height to put allow more weight. The mounting holes can also be used for a Nema17 stepper motor.

Conclusion

To date (Oct 2022) all my designs are free to download and use. There is no Pateron or OnlyFan (hahaha). If you like my designs and want to contribute to my coffee addiction & help fund the filaments I need for prototyping, a donation of $5-$10 to Ko-fi or paypal.me will be greatly appreciated.

 

Caveat

As with all my designs, it may and may not work for you. So print and install at your own discretion.

Is there a guide or video showing the assembly? Will M3x4.6x4.5 inserts that I have on hand work instead of the listed brass insert m3x4.6x3? Thanks
