Free printed parts for Mini Kossel

Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Johann 6/23/13 1:03 PM
I've received some requests for printed parts from the original Mini Kossel. So here's the deal:

* I'm going to make some Mini Kossel printed parts kits.
* I'm going to give them away for free (as in beer).
* Some kits may include some non-printed parts.
* Free international shipping is included.
* No delivery schedule, maybe only one kit per month.

But there's no such thing as a free lunch. If you want to receive a free kit, you must swear by your geek honor:

* To complete your Mini Kossel and tune it well.
* To print two (2) Mini Kossel kits and also give them away for free.
* To make your recipients agree to the same rule.

After giving away the 2 free kits, you may sell printed parts for any price you want.

If you're interested, please reply to this thread (or private email if you prefer) and let me know your favorite PLA color and mailing address.

If you want to get your printed parts first, explain why you're more qualified than others to start giving away high quality printed parts soon.

Cheers,
Johann

Could you add one rule to document the build process?  That will help other that want to build....
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Leary 6/23/13 6:26 PM
What is the link to the parts set? And is PLA or ABS the recommended path?

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Warren 6/23/13 6:34 PM
This sounds like a great idea and something that will really get this going.

I'd love to get started with a build, but I'm not positive what other parts I need.  Ie, after the printed parts, is there a BOM for all the other parts, preferably with sources to purchase from?

Thanks!
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Johann 6/23/13 7:14 PM

PLA. I'll post pictures when the first kit is done printing.

http://github.com/jcrocholl/kossel always has the latest STL files, including plates for overnight/unattended printing.

http://reprap.org/wiki/Kossel has a (mostly complete) BOM for printed parts and vitamins, and will probably soon also include links to assembly instructions.

Hi Johann,
Love your work indeed ! now im in awe of your philanthropy as well as your design skills !
I have been reading this group for the past month or so, really wanting to contribute in some way, Im in Australia, I would be more than happy to fulfill some local (Australian) requests to save on international shipping if that helps.
Though, I typically print in ABS, and the colour choices are...red, red or red :)
 
Anyway Thank you for your work, and I hope I can help.
Kind regards
Grant

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jakov Cordina 6/24/13 5:01 AM
I don't know anyone in Malta (EU) with a 3d printer so if you could send me the parts and i manage to source the rest (will be hard too) I will pledge to the above.

This is such an awesome idea, I want to help kick-start the process
and print some copies to share!  Is it allowed to print on a Cartesian
printer (MendelMax) since I don't yet have a delta running?  :)

I see the mini-kossel plates.  Any idea how much PLA (weight) is
required for one full set of prints?

I'm a bit confused...the BOM there looks like it's for the big Kossel,
not the mini.  Or am I missing something?

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Ge Le 6/24/13 8:41 AM
I am going to try and get my Kossel mini legacy kit working first,
just because I have it.  Then, I could easily be a candidate for
somebody's well-made Modern-Mini parts.  

Splendid movement to start, Thanks.

The Wiki says get a 170 mm (diameter, I assume) Borosilicate glass plate.
Isn't that too small to reach the edges of the base triangle as shown
in the wiki picture?

I have the 15x15 mm extrusions, 600 x 340 mm, so I should
get the 240 mm plate, which will just barely overlap my base
triangle by about 5mm, right?

Detailed instructions for the different versions would be
a great help.  The legacy version seems to have only
a brief, possibly even incorrect version for the legacy kit
at tridprinting.

Also, having sources for good parts in the wiki is very good,
but there are no sources for many of the harder to find
(or know what is good quality) parts.

But, an excellent start.

Maybe somebody with legacy experience could copy
this wiki and modify it for the Kossel Legacy Mini, and
add a mention and a link to it in your Modern Mini Kossel wiki.

Again, sincere thanks for all the good work.

What slicer settings (particularly infill pattern/density, perimeters,
and top/bottom solid layers) are recommended for the mini-kossel parts?

...or should I just use the latest Slic3r defaults?

* 50% linear infill.
* 3 perimeters, outermost first.
* 3 top/bottom solid layers (but 2 would probably be okay too).
* 0.2mm layer height, 0.35mm extrusion width (same as nozzle size).

Bummer...I only have an 0.5mm nozzle.  Would that make usable parts,
or do I need to migrate to 0.35mm?  I don't want to send someone
something that just makes their life more frustrating!!!  :)

Thanks for the details!

No problem actually. Those settings are just a recommendation, not a
requirement.

I printed my own Mini Kossel parts successfully on the original
Rostock using a 0.5mm nozzle. My KISSlicer settings for Rostock are in
the same INI files on github.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel RJ Bates 6/24/13 8:38 PM
Johann, 
 I love the mini Kossel design, I've been wanting to get into 3d printers, but have been hesitant. I've been really researching what kind of printer I want, and I keep coming back to your design because it is it so cool. I think this is a great way to build a community around a printer. 
Count me in and I will do as requested. Being a software developer I'm hoping to get more into the coding side of things as well. I'll PM my details.

Cool...I grabbed KISSlicer and see the Kossel 0.5mm settings, which
look like a good start to use for my printer.

One final question:
Should I be seeing mesh errors on plate_3x.stl, or is this a bug?

I'm seeing errors when I load this stl in both Slic3r (the input file
is not manifold) and KISSlicer (yellow "only one triangle shares this
edge" warning).  The plate_1x.stl loads fine in both programs.

I also had some issues with the motor frame when using slic3r, I ran a repair with netfab and was able to slice ok after that.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Brandon H 6/26/13 3:03 PM
I've done my Mini Kossel parts w/a 0.5mm nozzle at 0.4mm layers.  

All are usable, except the probe mount, which really needs a smaller layer height; otherwise the ridges grab the corner of the allen wrench and cause a ton of friction when the allen wrench moves up and down.  I'd say 0.2mm would probably be fine.  For the rest, you'll want to drill out the holes anyway, so I don't see any non-aesthetic downsides to using such a coarse layer height.  The embossed kossel lettering is readable but probably not as sharp as if a lower layer height were used.

Has anyone given any thought to the fact that since Terence is no longer selling his Hiwin compatible rail, you are not left with a cost effective option to actually build a Mini?

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Brandon H 6/26/13 3:37 PM
I feel like a broken record at this point, but you have another option that is drop-in compatible and available: using my Pup-derived carriage adapters with graber dual-623 rollers:

Full details at:

At $7.45 apiece, 9x graberwheels comes to $67.05.  I have not tested a complete printer with them, but I have tested printed versions and they roll as smoothly as the my Openbeam ball rails (actually smoother, because you can adjust the tension).  I like the rails and have them, but they cost more, don't support full motion on printers in the ~700mm or taller range, and in my pack of three, had varying quality.  When I finish my Kossel w/ball rail, the first thing I will do is try the graberwheel versions and see if it affect print quality.

I think I'm going to finally put them on thingiverse so they get some visibility...

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel John Driggers 6/26/13 4:27 PM
Brandon - Agreed - at this point I'm looking at a derivative of your cars and OpenRail as the most cost effective option.  They are also a heck of a lot quieter than ball rails.  I've also got a set of 500mm Igus DryLin rails I'm going to use for one - unfortunately, they are probably not going to be cost effective - but they will be silent and slick! :-)

Just to clarify, your carriage adapter uses rollers, but basically
mounts the mini-kossel carriage that I would print from Johann's
mini-kossel platters.

Or in other words, if I printed three of your adapters, someone would
have the choice of using them and 9 GraberCar wheels, or not using
them and sourcing the Hiwin linear rail.

Right?

...or am I confused?

I already shot Johann a private message, but I wanted to jump in here as well. I am super excited about this offer. I live in Seattle, and have been wanting to build a 3d printer for a few years now, but money has always been a bit of an issue. Then, a few months ago, I was in Metrix while they were working on one of the Kossel Pro prototypes. My wife and I sat down, did some budgeting, and agreed that it was time to start building. Then she lost her job. I never stopped watching the Kossel RepRap wiki page, and when I saw the full parts list go up, I started looking around for parts and doing pricing. One of the biggest hurdles was going to be the printed parts. I didn't have the ability to get in on the Kossel Pro kickstarter, and I really didn't know how I was going to find these parts.

But now I do, and I am unbelievably excited.

My pledge for this: I will completely document my build process, including video and mistakes. I will pay forward more than 2 sets. I have 2 friends that I know will want a set, and I will make at least 1 more for someone else. I will also build this as quickly, and accurately as I can. I can't wait to start printing.

My one caveat, so to speak, is that I won't be able to buy all of the other parts immediately, so my build will be in stages as I purchase pieces.

So, my dream machine is blue parts and black OpenBeam. I live a little south of Seattle proper, and would be more than happy to meet at Metrix or somewhere else so that I can save people on shipping costs.

And I am so excited about this...

Hi Leary,
   Thanks for your quick response! This is awesome!
   I've been following this forum for 6+ months, trying to decide which variant of the Rostock to build. Blue would be my top pick. Is it possible for you to include Brandon H's pup carriage adapter so that the Kossel carriage can ride directly on the aluminum extrusion using delrin wheels? I think this is the most economical route, and doesn't seem to compromise quality. Plus, I was tossing around the idea of using the filament drive with a v-wheel at the top frame. I haven't found a reference as to why Johann switched back to GT2 belt from filament, other than easier set-up. Do you know if the 18mm drive reel will fit in place of the drive gear?
   I have also been looking for an off-the-shelf solution for magnetic arms, but maybe I will tackle this later as an upgrade. There are a number of "pivot ball" joints for RC racing cars that already have threaded shafts, but they come in stainless, aluminum, and steel, and the materials or diameters aren't often listed. The ones that are obviously steel tend to be smaller diameter and might require the use of smaller magnets, yielding a lower weight capacity. There are "counter-sunk" magnets that might cup the pivot-balls, providing a stronger bond and counteract the otherwise reduced pulling force of the magnet, by putting in in closer contact. To your knowledge, has anyone looked into these pre-threaded pivot balls and countersunk magnets?
   I really appreciate your help with this. This is my first printer so I know there will be a bit of a learning curve, but I will do my best to get my machine up and running quickly. I do some "appropriate technology" design geared towards creating solutions to fulfill basic needs in developing countries, and this will be a great new tool. Plus I have a lot of contacts abroad in the development community, so maybe some of the printed parts that I am committing to pass on will help spawn the 3D printing revolution in the far corners of the world. It is really difficult to get spare parts, new products, and labor saving technologies in developing countries because of corruption, low demand, and remoteness, and 3D printing could really help ease this burden.   

Thanks!

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Leary 6/28/13 12:43 PM
Ben,
  No problem including the pup carriage.  I notice that the link you posted is to the scad.. I guess that's expected to get the latest from git... Not a problem, just hoping for guidance in case I'm not clear. If you point me to the stl (or scad) for the other component I'll print that as well.

 As to design specifics, I'm very "green" to the delta movement. I'm just sourcing parts to build my first delta kossel now so I'm trying not to drown from the fire hose of information!!

I re-plated the Kossel mini parts set into a single plate 200x250 to print on my Mendel Max but it has failed twice now missing a step or two on the y axis.. very frustrating that.. It must be a cooling issue..  I positioned a new fan and dropped back to Johann's provided plates, nice and slow..

In any case I expect I can have a set of parts in blue ready on Monday or so..

If anyone is interested in the full plate I'll post it.. not entirely sure of the etiquette for that, so someone clue me in :)



Ben

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel rrhb 6/28/13 1:29 PM
HI Johann - 

I think the Mini Kossel PLA settings are incorrect,

temperature_C=230
keep_warm_C=120
first_layer_C=250

I'm not comfortable printing at those temperatures with teflon j-heads, seems high even for ABS.

yes, slic3r is not liking the motor mount. Anyone else seeing errors while printing or is it unique to my Slic3r installation?

I've had several failed plates before I isolated it. Netfabb doesn't seem to repair it either.
It was a most unusual error as well during printing - my motor mount came out without holes and height of the other items on the plate were incorrect. that's a new one for me.
Seems to slice and print ok on KISSlicer though. I would recommend using that until the motor mount SCAD issue is fixed.

Cool...I grabbed KISSlicer and see the Kossel 0.5mm settings, which
look like a good start to use for my printer.

One final question:
Should I be seeing mesh errors on plate_3x.stl, or is this a bug?

I'm seeing errors when I load this stl in both Slic3r (the input file
is not manifold) and KISSlicer (yellow "only one triangle shares this
edge" warning).  The plate_1x.stl loads fine in both programs.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel John Driggers 6/28/13 1:39 PM
Hey RRHB - are you using the ones Johann posted a couple of days ago that he had run through meshlab?  I ended up running most through Netfabb as the meshes are not manifold.  Slic3r at least did give me a error, so I'd checked the G-Code before wasting the plastic.

I'll have to look at the code for the motor mount and see if I can figure out what's causing the bad mesh.  I don't have my notebook in front of me, but I want to say there was at least one other bad mesh...

I know the 18mm roller will fit.  You will need to find or make an idler that matches this, plus add mounts for the line.  Plus, you'll need to find a way to tie the line to exactly the same length.  The way Johann's frame tops are designed requires equal length line because the idlers and frame are fixed.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Brandon H 6/28/13 2:57 PM
I checked the most recent stuff and saw the same error as RRHB.  Reverting to an earlier version at commit 42c94dae, Slic3r is able to process the file and generate reasonable output.  Not sure what's wrong with the recent parts.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Brandon H 6/28/13 3:00 PM
I've added more details on the carriage and posted the STL to thingiverse:


Hopefully this erases the confusion.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Johann 6/29/13 8:46 AM
Actually the Slic3r gcode at 42c94dae appears to be also broken. For
example, the big motor mounting hole is missing.

$ /Applications/Slic3r.app/Contents/MacOS/slic3r frame_motor.stl
Warning: The input file contains a hole near edge
1517.000000-1520.000000 (not manifold). You might want to repair it
and retry, or to check the resulting G-code before printing anyway.
=> Processing triangulated mesh
The model has overlapping or self-intersecting facets. I tried to
repair it, however you might want to check the results or repair the
input file and retry.
=> Generating perimeters

Can anyone confirm this and/or find a work-around?
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel GrantLawton 6/29/13 9:07 AM
Hi Johann,
 
I was able to repair the .stl in netfab.
Im not sure if this is the documented method for repair in netfab, However, I have found that :
right click the part (frame_motor.stl in this case) Goto Extras/Repair Part.
This then opens some options in the right context area, 
I then click the automatic repair button and execute the Default repair from the popup dialog. (the red exclamation sign then disappears) 
then apply part repair, remove old part, and you can export the repaired stl.

I have attached a repaired stl from the current kossel branch.
Hope this helps ...and you werent asking for help on fixing the . scad :)

regards
Grant
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Johann 6/29/13 9:22 AM

Unfortunately I think Netfabb doesn't have an automatic batch mode (command line interface) and I can't manually repair each STL file after each change. So I still think we need to find a work-around on the OpenSCAD side.

When I opened the STL in slicer it just complained.  When I opened it
in kisslicer it was more specific about the geometry goofs.  That
might help identify the issue to fix in OpenSCAD?

FWIW I have a part set up on ebay that I'd get rid of at below what I'm asking there:


If someone would cover the cost of the plastic (http://shop.seemecnc.com/3mm-Blue-PLA-2-Spool-50121.htm), a bit for machine time, and shipping, they're yours.  I estimate I have ~ 1 lb PLA in them (~$20), ~15 hrs printing (~$10?), USPS priority mail medium shipping box ($12.35). Total: $42.35 and they're yours.  I'm moving shortly so I'd like to get these gone so I don't need to keep track of them.

I have printed two complete sets of Mini Kossel parts so far.  One
went to the local hackerspace last night, but the other needs a home:

https://plus.google.com/u/0/106079792142766516843/posts/idFe2ZkaCN2

As per Johann's arrangement, this is "pay-it-forward" and you have to
commit to doing two things for the maker community.  I'm a bit more
flexible...you can print and give away two sets of printer parts (for
any 3D printer, it doesn't have to be a Mini Kossel), or you could do
something like create a new printer design or make a _significant_
improvement to an existing design (putting your name on the Kossel
frame brackets doesn't count!).

Send me a private e-mail with your address and why it would otherwise
be difficult for you to obtain a set of printed parts.

Disclosure:
I am doing this in part to _really_ dial in my printer and slicing
settings, so the parts are not guaranteed to be exactly identical (ie:
some sliced at 0.3mm some at 0.2mm with 0.4mm infill, etc).  There are
also some retraction/blobbing goobers on the parts, but that is all
extra material and can be manually cleaned off.  I swear on my geek
honor these parts will build a working machine or I will get you parts
that do (although perhaps not in the same color).

Oh...and if you didn't check out the picture, the Pup carriages are
included too, if you need them.  It seems like the linear rail is
becoming hard to source (and expensive).

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Lee 8/19/13 7:59 AM
Hello,

I'm from Thailand., and want to accept the deal. I would build one for my family. After that, I will build and introduce a few 3D printers for my kid school. There're a few teachers and families I know that have the same vision, and willing to pay it forward.

Regards,
Lee

You can add me to your list. I will be glad to contribute back and I just need an excuse to start.
Beside, at some point I will move back to Portugal (right now I am in Boulder, CO) and bring the experience back with me ;)

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Pezgarden now 8/31/13 1:01 PM
I could use some help. I don't have access at the moment to a 3D printer, and want to build a Kossel. I've ordered all my electronics, (looking for motors now). I'd be happy to pay it forward when I'm up and running.

Perhaps someone could help me out with the bowden extruder parts. The 3 motor mounts, and thread pulleys.

I'm looking at this in sections.

If I have to, in the beginning I could use plywood to hold the frame corners together. (Then print them when I'm running)

I'm eventually using BerryBot type magnets for the end effector.

The pay it forward is a very nice idea. In some ways the intellectual OPEN SOURCE is paying it forward to the community. 

As I research my build, I see so many cool designs (RepRap Morgan). But I can't start making these custom parts until I have my first printer going.

There is Someone in the RepRap community in San Diego who's kind of big on youtube, but he's never responded to any of my e-mails.

So if there is anyone who could print a part or two to get me started, I'd appreciate it, and I will do the same in the near future!

Thanks

Max

I love this idea, but have too many printers at the moment.

But if there is someone in the UK (I hate international shipping paperwork) that wants a set of parts to build one and start paying forwards, I will print them a set.

Let me know

Hi Ian,

I am in the UK and looking to build a Mini Kossel / start this month.
I will happily pay a few sets forward if you would be happy to build me a set.

I can of course cover your shipping etc.

Let me know if this is possible :)

Also I may need some advice if you have already built a kossel.

Cheers,

Jason

Great idea!

I live in Sweden and i would like a kit. I prefer black, but it is not necessary.
I already have everything except aluminum profiles and plastic parts to finish building my Kossel.
3D printing is starting to get very popular in Sweden and I would be glad to help.

Hi All, 

Good idea, im in South Africa, if anyone is willing to supply me with a kit it will be much appreciated. 

i haven't seen to much activity on DIY 3d printers here in South Africa, but im would like to see it grow, so i will support this drive.

Put me on your list. 
Now here is the pitch to get mine first (yes, I know it is September). I have been researching Deltabot printers for a whole year wile I was deployed overseas. Now that I'm home I'm eager to get my build on! I would be honored to be sponsored by one of the pioneers in this genre of printers. I have no plans to make a profit on this but you can count me in to pay it forward. I will PM you my contact info. Thank you for your consideration.

Hi Anderson!
 
I e-mailed you. I'm ready. In fact I got all my electronics running last night. Got Marlins installed + Repetier Host. Figured why my baud rate was screwy. Heated up my hot end nicely. X-Box 360 203W power supply running well. Get one motor buzzing away. Have to crimp connectors on the other 3.
I have my Aluminum extrusion. In fact just ordered some cool RGB LEDs to light my bed.
I'm just waiting for a 2004 LCD to go with the SD reader and rotary encoder. I even have my first reel of filament from Amazon.
I'm a school teacher 6th and 7th grade. As soon as I get this running I will be demonstrating printing in class.
 
Thanks

I've received a kit! Thanks Tim. I've ordered most of the parts. Everything is just time and money at this point. Let the fun begin. I'll keep everyone posted on the build. Once I'm up and running, I'll look for willing recipients of my freebies as promised.

I don't even see this as much as "pay it forward" as almost borrowing a set of parts until you can print a set of parts.Then you just help someone(s) next.
 
I think I saw a weigh in of the parts at 271 grams so around So under 10 oz of plastic. As new Delta owners, were going to run through a bunch of plastic anyway just for fun. Might as well help someone out.

If the offer is still open, I would also like to be a part of this pay it forward effort you have initiated.  I could help out here once I have put a Mini Kossel together.  The design is brilliant.  The evolution of printers is very healthy!

Well, I've sold the big ol' Kossel, it was just a tad too big for my room, so now I've ordered everything for a new "standard" Kossel Mini, except the printed parts.
It may take a couple of weeks before all the bits and bobs arrive as I live in The Wonderful Netherlands. ;-)
Anyway, could I "borrow" a set of printed parts from somebody? That would be really awesome! :D
Of course I'll "pay everything back" by also giving away two parts of printed parts when my own printer works reliably.

Hello Johann!

I would love to participate in this initiative. I do not currently own a 3D printer of any kind, but I am eager to learn how to use this technology. I would gladly document the entire process and print two free kits for other individuals to use, if given the chance. If anything, I'm sure the computer animation/3D Modeling students at the school I work for would love to get their hands on this technology. Maybe I could get the students to participate as well, printing sets for each other so they can all get in on the action.

If you are still doing this, please let me know. I would happily provide my mailing address and any other information needed.

All the best,

Trevor

Instead of going with the program I ordered my parts from a Dutch bloke for the very reasonable price of €47,- incl. shipping (inside The Netherlands, but he ships worldwide) here: http://kossel.stuifmail.nl/, so I'm "unsubscribing" from the program.
Please note: I'm in no way affiliated with him, nor do I have any financial involvement, I just thought his site might me helpful, as it also has a complete build manual, in English and Dutch, for the Kossel Mini, really nice!

After giving away the 2 free kits, you may sell printed parts for any price you want.

If you're interested, please reply to this thread (or private email if you prefer) and let me know your favorite PLA color and mailing address.

If you want to get your printed parts first, explain why you're more qualified than others to start giving away high quality printed parts soon.

Nice site!  I wish I'd found that when starting my build.

Added link to the Mini Kossel build instructions (http://kossel.stuifmail.nl/en/build.html). Well done.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Alex Borro 10/30/13 6:49 AM
I'm trying to access it from Brazil, through many providers (from my job, from home, from 3G network) and all of them cannot access.. maybe a routing issue..

Are you able to mirror in other server or zip the files and send to my personal email?? I can mirror them in other server if you wish.

Thanks.

Anyone in the Memphis metro area tat wants a free set, I printed one in celebration of getting my mini up and running. I only have 1 motor frame mount to print and the bed tabs. Happy to help a local. White PLA, and you can sere the progression of calibration and Jhead woes I had as I printed them :) They are all to spec, just the most recent ones are more aesthetic ;)

Hey Jay,

No longer local  - but a UT grad (architecture)... So many TN folks on here!

I'd be happy to pay for shipping if you still have the parts.  Otherwise, I'm sure I could get some of my buddies (Germantown) to do the dirty work and pick them up.  Pretty excited to get this build started! Just as excited to pay it forward!

I submitted my information for this right after it started and still had no response of any kind... think I am going to have to scrap the idea. Have everything but my frame and the plastics :(

UNLESS there is a person in Indiana who wouldnt mind helping me out. If not I think I'll just throw in the towel. 
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 11/19/13 10:04 AM
I can print you a set, give me a few days. It'll be black PLA, that's all I have right now. What type of carriage are you using, linear guid or the Grabercars from Cerebus?

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 11/22/13 6:15 AM
Nice work, what settings did you use for layer, infill etc? I think the belt joiners (cubes) should be added to the wiki printed parts list. I used wire ties before I printed a set to use. Peter should be getting the set I sent out Wednesday today Been fighting with my 1.75mm filament and home-hobbed bolt, so not been able to print Andrew's set as fast as I hoped. 
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 11/22/13 6:24 AM
Fan Mount: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:187867  Also looking at the photo there are two z-probe towers one on each side of the photo.

The Belt clips are here: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:117987
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Ian Lee, Sr. 11/22/13 7:05 AM
The larger blue frame pieces were originally printed to replace the ones for my printer and when I was testing printing at different layer thicknesses.  So, they most are at high resolution 0.05mm height.  The rest are printed at 0.1mm.  All are at 50% infill.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Ian Lee, Sr. 11/22/13 7:07 AM
Since he was undecided on which hotend he was going with, I printed an effector set for both Jhead & E3D.  One of the z-probe retainers is one I customized for use with the E3D.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Steven Rois 11/22/13 10:30 AM

Getting on the bandwagon a little bit late but here goes: I am in need of plastic parts to complete a Kossel Mini. After about 2+ years of research I finally settled on this excellent design and want to build one for my very own. Like the others before me, I pledge to "pay it forward" once my printer is up and running. I know realistically, based on the number of replies, that it would be a while before I could get anyone to help me out; however, I've waited this long to start my project, so whats a few more weeks or months, eh?  Please contact me via e mail if you are looking for a recipient in order to fulfill your pay-it-forward pledge.

Cheers,

Steve

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 11/22/13 10:38 AM
Where are you located, that may help you prompt a local to step up. 
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 11/22/13 10:41 AM
Not sure why you were trying to buy plastics when you were offered free ones, or how much you could have possibly been asked to pay, but I have only asked the guys I have printed/will be printing to cover the cost of shipping. Plastic PLA is around $30 for 1KG. And for me with some teething issues I got around 1 set out of a roll of white not counting the various other objects I printed. Printing a set for Andrew right now, so unless someone steps up and offers you a set you'll need to wait until I've finished this set. A new roll of translucent blue should be arriving today. I love watching this thing print and I hope all of you that have sworn on you Geek Honor ;) follow through.

So I've done my free sets a couple of time over.  If anyone wants PLA sets in your choice of colors with 3 day turn around, they are $75 + shipping, satisfaction guaranteed.  ABS or HIPS will be a bit more.

I'm booked through next week, so the week of December 2nd is the next set of slots.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 11/22/13 10:51 AM
No offense but advertising $75 printed parts on a thread titled "Free printed parts for Mini Kossel" is ... well you know what I'm saying.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel John Driggers 11/22/13 10:54 AM
Is what?  I've given away 6 sets so far - if someone is no longer willing to wait for "free", paying to get them now is an option.  I didn't start with free parts, so I've never been under any obligation to give *any* away.

So yes - I know what you are saying. Feel free to ignore the post! :P
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Steven Rois 11/22/13 10:56 AM
I'm located in North Carolina. Thanks for the tip Jay! Makes sense as far as trying to reduce postage and shipping costs to stay local.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Steven Machado 11/22/13 12:35 PM
Im thinking I could cover the cost of shipping (in a day or two) for a free set is its offered.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Andrew Wilson 11/22/13 6:09 PM
 I think this is a terrific idea Jay. If anyone is able I would really appreciate a set of mini-kossel parts. I placed the order for the final components today for my build today so only need the printed pieces for the frame assembly. I live in Cincinnati and promise to pay it forwards.
I am also about to build my 1st homemade CNC so was contemplating trying to make some mdf components that could be made more cheaply that the printed parts if anyone is interested in this as an alternative.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jon Perry 11/23/13 10:32 AM
I've sent shipping costs to Ian via Paypal, and enthusiastically wait for the Kossel parts.  Ian's advice and generosity with knowledge gained from experience is greatly valued.  I finally found this thread again to keep continuity in what looks like an historic thread representing a paradigm shift in future manufacturing!  We all owe it to Johann!  Well, this may be a bit overblown, but in the greater scheme of things, I don't think so.

Saw that, but it's not at a sufficient res to get any sense of the layering detail.

The 0.05 layer setting looks excellent in the pics! How difficult is it to print consistently at that high resolution?

The other, more obvious question, is: why print pay-it-forward parts at 0.05mm resolution instead of 0.3mm or 0.4mm which would get the parts done in a fraction of the time???  I mean, people are getting FREE parts....

If I recall correctly, Ian had said these were parts he printed as replacements and he used them to tune his settings. Since they were extras, he graciously gave them away.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 11/25/13 9:37 AM
I can not go back past my initial post to sort out who asked for parts and who has/has not got any so here is a recap from Nov 5, 2013 forward:
  • Peter got his parts
  • Jon got his parts
  • Andrew's parts are mailing today
  • Stevens Machado's parts are printing
  • I show Steven Rois next
  • I show Andrew Wilson after that
If you want/get a set of free mini Kossel parts all of Johann's original "rules" apply. You are expected to pay for shipping/handling. If you can not or will not then please let me know so I can remove your name. If you want a set, then reply and copy/paste the list and add your name at the bottom. If you get a set, then please repost the list stating you have your parts. Depending on how well we play by Johann's rules I may/may not continue to print/mail free parts. I'm not in it for money, I enjoy it, but if you abuse my good will then you ruin it for others.

Also here is what "free as in beer" means.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Ian Lee, Sr. 11/25/13 9:57 AM
Jay - Yes, that picture really doesn't do them any justice and, unfortunately, I failed to get any close-up shots.  Jon, do you have a high-res camera you could post a close-up of one of the large bottom frame parts with?  Especially highlight the crispness of the "Kossel" text and the lack of any visible layer lines (to the human eye).

Steven - it's actually much easier to print at 0.05mm resolution.  You don't have to worry about the plastic not being able to extrude fast enough and it tends to "smear" on nice and smooth.  However, as Jay pointed out it does take much longer.  One of the bottom corners took over 4 hrs to print.

Shane - I agree completely.  As Jay pointed out, these parts were originally intended to replace the ones on my printer where I'm much more interested in the quality of the print than the speed of the print.  However, once I got them printed I decided I didn't really want to change the color and I decided to make some structural changes to make room to hide my electronics in the base.  So, this is still a work in progress and Jon benefited from my rev 1 prints. :)

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jon Perry 11/25/13 11:53 AM
They all fit with maybe 0.002 clearance on the 1515 extrusion, just enough to assemble without filing, so expansion/contraction will never crack the plastic.

Out of curiosity, what's the change to bridging performance at such thin layer heights?  Intuitively, a beam that's as tall as it is wide should droop less than one that's wide and flat.  On the other hand, the surface to volume ratio is much better at small layer heights, so the material may harden much more quickly, leading to less droop.  Plus the temperature can be set lower without the extruder skipping.

What has your experience been?

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Ian Lee, Sr. 11/26/13 9:05 AM
I can't recall actually testing that.  Unfortunately, bridges are the one thing that have degraded since moving to Cura.  I'll try to do some tests this week.  It's an interesting question.  Since it basically smears the layer on to get that height and since that's not possible during a bridge I would expect that it would stretch out thin lines but they wouldn't actually overlap on the first layer.

Unfortunately the Blue PLA I order from Justpla (via Amazon) had poor QC and I think the pressure of my extruder exceeded the 145psi rating. Broke one of the internal teeth of the SMC connector. I have order replacements and they should be here Friday or Saturday.

You are correct…..the extrusions cost me $33.12 plus $8.50 for shipping.

So the parts I sent out were based on the BOM and did not include any end sop mounts or accessories like a fan mount. If this is something you need, be sure to note it. Good news, JustPLA is sending me a replacement roll so I'll have blue soon. I also got in some red and white from Monoprice so I'm stocked up :)

Hey Johann

Great idea , I have been working on getting a set together and would definitely pay it forward. In Washington

Let me know how to qualify

Great article Ian. Well written, focused, covered past, present and future in a few paragraphs.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Richard, Printrbot Simple, building Mini Kossel 12/9/13 7:59 AM
One question I have about the printed parts is how easy it is to crack the top corner piece where the screw goes in to hold the bearings.
I did tighten down too much and cracked one, so I used super glue.
I hope to finish my build and get it to work well enough, long enough to print replacements. But the belts put a lot of downward force on the location.
Bought my parts.
Maybe I will be up and running by January.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Ian Lee, Sr. 12/9/13 8:15 AM
Thanks, Richard.  That was my goal.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Ian Lee, Sr. 12/9/13 8:20 AM
I haven't had this problem.  Do you mean you cracked the piece when tightening your nut onto your bearing or when tightening your belts?  Your nut on the bearing shouldn't be that tight.  Just enough to keep things moving.  Your belt really doesn't have to be super tight either.  Is your screw that holds the bearing in place long enough to go into the plastic on both sides?  It sounds like it may not be adding support on the backside and it's being twisted when you tighten the belt.  Of course, it could be bad prints.  Where did you buy them from?
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel John Driggers 12/9/13 9:27 AM
Nice article, and you make an important distinction w/regard to Johann's "vision" of pay it forward and others "implementation" asking for plastic and shipping to be covered.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 12/9/13 9:57 AM
I can print you a replacement, but as Ian says, there is nothing to tighten on the 3mm screw. It simply acts as an axle for the idler bearings. Send me an email with your mailing address and I'll get one out to you.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Richard, Printrbot Simple, building Mini Kossel 12/9/13 12:41 PM

OK, now I am totally embarrassed. Newbie mistake. NOB with how to build things.

I cracked all three.  What a goof. I have not put the belts on yet.

Joshua at MakerGeeks did a great job getting me a set of Mini Kossel parts in beautiful Red.

OK, I have a Printrbot Simple, I have Red, 1kg 1.75mm PLA, from MakerGeeks.

I downloaded the STL and loaded it into CURA and looks like I can print them one at a time on the Simple - in Red.

Should I use super glue and keep building the Kossel, or replace all three parts before I go any further?


Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 12/9/13 1:09 PM
I would replace since you have the Simple to print them. Also, have a look at Johann's photos http://www.flickr.com/photos/jcrocholl/9003654784/ to how it goes together. 
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Richard, Printrbot Simple, building Mini Kossel 12/9/13 2:56 PM

Cura says it will take a little less than 2.5 hours to print one top frame part on the Simple.
layer 0.2564mm, speed 60mm/s, fill 70%, Flow 100%, 
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 12/9/13 3:04 PM
70% is overkill. Use 40%, 0.6mm top and bottom and 0.8 for shell. What is your infill rate?

OK, I sent an email to Joshua. He sent me Transparent Red instead of the Big Red I ordered and I will ask him to print me replacement parts for those three I cracked…
So, I can not print a replacement, unless I don't care what that the color doesn't match….and I care.
Thanks for your help.

I think I was using an infill speed of (mm/s) 40.  What would be good speed for my Simple?

The picture I used had two nuts, one on each side of the bearings.  But that causes too much back pressure on the screw forcing the plastic near the screw head back.
I need to drill out the hole a little and be more cautious about tightening slowly, each nut and screw repeatedly going to each, to tighten just a little.
 
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Ian Lee, Sr. 12/9/13 3:39 PM
I just use one locnut.

When do you expect to finish your project?
What city/state are you in so that some near there might get you parts.
What frame, linear motion, hotend, Extruder parts do you already have?
Do you have a budget for your project?

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Richard, Printrbot Simple, building Mini Kossel 12/10/13 1:20 PM
Ian,

I am going to use one locknut.......when I get replacement parts from Joshua.....they are in the mail.
Meanwhile, I successfully connected my Mega2560 to my iMAC, used IDE to load the firmware downloaded from GitHub ( used marlin fork by Eric Zalm)
Changed the configuration.h and ....adv.h files to the delta specific. Then connected to the Mega2560 using Repetier and started to setup a delta, and it was fun seeing the cylindrical build space show up on the screen for the first time.
Need to finish soldering the pins on the stepper drivers, install them.
I keep having to buy tools to do things. My latest excuse was that I am 64 and need a hands free magnifying lens with a light to see the pins.
So, I now have a new Ott light with 3X and two other lenses for soldering and examining plastic prints.
Fun hobby.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Ian Lee, Sr. 12/10/13 2:17 PM
Fun indeed!  You may want to check out the Marlin branch from Brandon H. if you plan to use G29 (auto bed level) and M666 (software endstop adjustment).

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Sawaiz 12/10/13 6:58 PM
Hello,
I'm in the Atlanta area and am interested in getting some kossel mini parts. I would be very interested in printing it forward.

First some background. I've built and managed a Mendel max design about two years ago for a place I used to work at because they wanted to make prototype cases for their hardware. Then I helped a local makerspace build another Mendel max design but due to classes, I couldn't stay a member. Just a few weeks ago (still working on calibration) I advised the physics society at my college in their construction of a thredded rod Mendel, and did most of the electronics and extruder construction as well as helping them debug problems. I thought its about time I get one of my own.

After deciding I wanted a delta not (seem more cutting edge, cartisians seem boring now) I need up settling between the Rostock mini until I saw the kossel mini. Learning the difficulties of threaded rod and the ease of expandability of extrution (not to mention not having to ensure precision in measurement of the frame) I decided on this model.

I've ordered the electronics, rails, extruder, bearings, belts... Basically everything that's not the Misumi and mcmaster (because they are fast). And just need the printed pieces. Right now It looks like I might be able to assemble a printer for about 400-450 in parts.

Any color will do, I'm excited to get this done by the end of my winter break if possible.

Thanks,
Sawaiz

TL;DR- Want printed parts, Have experience, have ordered parts.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel 405...@swcta.net 12/11/13 12:10 PM
I live in Las Vegas, Nevada. I got to SouthWest career and Technical Academy. ( magnet school ) we are doing a senior capstone and our group has decided to do a mini kossel bot. we have no parts already and our budget is somehwere around 300-400 dollars ( we are prepared to go over that though. )  We need to have everything finished around April .
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Richard, Printrbot Simple, building Mini Kossel 12/11/13 1:07 PM
You guys have a whole different set of constraints compared to the rest of us online here, so I have many questions.
What research have you done?
How many students on your team?
Do you have an adult advisor with 3D printer experience?
Do you have a plan with all the online references you will need to build it?
If I were you, I would build an online library with all your documentation of your plans, BOM, budget, build instructions, calibration, software settings, operating procedures. I can get away with doing this on my own schedule and by the seat of my pants. I can afford to make mistakes and break something, and pay for a replacement.

I researched 3D printers for a month and have been on a steep learning curve trying to figure out how to operate the one I bought and assembled from a kit.
Building a Mini Kossel without having operating experience can be a disadvantage.

You need to double your budget and include filament, tools, and cut things from your budget, if you have not already, like LCD, heated bed, auto leveling, extras.

Others may have suggestions or questions.
I am not trying to criticize or discourage you, just hoping you make an informed decision.
I am starting to build a mini Kossel now, so I am sympathetic and supporting your decision.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel 405...@swcta.net 12/12/13 11:17 AM
We have been researching since about august or so. We have 3 member in our team ( this includes me ) we have just ordered most of our parts. we went over budget, but our teacher allowed it since it will stay in our engineering shop. our teacher has had alot of 3d printer experience. ( we have a large 3d printer in our shop ) all we need left are the 3d parts, heat bed, extruder, and a couple other things.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 12/12/13 7:26 PM
Not to jump to conclusions without all the facts, but this large printer may be a Stratasys with does in fact use some expensive feedstock compared tot he filament available for repraps.

  • Steven Machado got his parts
  • Steven Rois got his parts
  • Andrew Wilson got his parts
  • James Arslan's parts are mailing tonight
  • Sawaiz Syed's parts are mailing tonight
  • Vijay is in India and wants a set. Anyone in india or somewhere closer that US that can fix him up?
  • An email has been sen to 405...@swtca.net
Pay it forward.

Is anyone still giving away the 3d printed parts for the Mini Kossel. I decided to make one and almost ordered the parts from makergeeks.com until I saw this thread. Please message me if you have a set to give away.
 
Also, is there a 3D printing group which meets in the Seattle-Tacoma area regularly?

Hello! I would very much like to get involved with this. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area (South San Jose). Happy to pick up the parts to save on shipping, and I'm also going to start attending the Bay Area RepRap meetings from time to time in case anyone else here does, too. I imagine the list of requests is long, but I'll keep my fingers crossed!

Best!
John

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 12/16/13 8:45 PM
I can not go back past my initial post to sort out who asked for parts and who has/has not got any so here is a recap from Nov 5, 2013 forward. Here is the list of pay it forward recipients since then:
  • Peter got his parts
  • Jon got his parts
  • Andrew's parts got his parts
  • Steven Machado got his parts
  • Steven Rois got his parts
  • Andrew Wilson got his parts
  • James Arslan's parts are in the mail
  • Sawaiz Syed's in the mail
  • Vijay is in India and wants a set. Anyone in india or somewhere closer that US that can fix him up?
  • Matt's parts are ready to ship
  • Angelica Morales (NY) wants a set
  • Farris Harris (Singapore?) wants a set
  • John England (SF) wants a set
If any of you that got your parts wouldn't mind providing an update on your progress. I've been printing a lot of sets and I'm not seeing they are being used. I am starting to question if giving sets away is doing any good. Pay it forward.

After giving away the 2 free kits, you may sell printed parts for any price you want.

If you're interested, please reply to this thread (or private email if you prefer) and let me know your favorite PLA color and mailing address.

If you want to get your printed parts first, explain why you're more qualified than others to start giving away high quality printed parts soon.

Thanks for adding me to the list, Jay, and thanks for all of the sets you have been sending out. Looks like a crazy amount of work. I look forward to being able to offer parts, and I'll be happy to do it whenever I can.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Elliot 12/16/13 9:06 PM
John,

If you're serious about it, I would imagine that someone around here (or multiple people) would be willing to help you out with parts.  Bring it up on Wednesday, or on the local Bay area list.

Thanks for the suggestion, Elliot. I had thought about bringing it up on the local list, but figured I'd show my face first before asking for help with parts. (Although, I'll admit I did secretly consider bringing along two 24" x 18" sections of MDF and leaving them in the car, just in case) ;)

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Steven Rois 12/17/13 4:56 AM
As Jay mentioned I did receive my set of printed parts. Build is progressing well. Unfortunately working full time and planning a wedding really cut into my 3D printing time. Here is what my MK looks like as of this morning: 


Thanks again to Jay for the printed parts. Anyone know of a good electronics/wiring guide for a mini? That's going to be my next big hurdle. 

Cheers

Steve

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Andrew Wilson 12/17/13 5:57 AM
I am making progress with my build - I had some issues finding the right bolts to connect the link rods to the effector platform and guides (evidently I bought a smaller diameter if traxxas connector) but I think I have the final parts now.
Mechanically the machine is fully assembled and is very smooth running. I am travelling this week so can't resume assembly until the weekend. I will start the wiring process this weekend.
I am using Ramps 1.4 - some questions I have about the wiring:

I see most people install a power switch (some have it play a sound when powering up/down), is the power switch controlling the DC only or the AC?

Where do you tap the power for the fan (and LED's that some have) from?

Do I need to use high temp teflon wire for the heated bed or the extruder? (I bought a couple of meters just in case)
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 12/17/13 6:32 AM
Better to start a new thread/post so other users can find and help you easier.

You could switch either, but if you switch the DC (12V) then the power brick will be using/wasting a small amount of power. I just plug and unplug mine, which will weak out the receptacle, just I didn't have a suitable switch in my junk bin and wanted to get going.

Where do you tap the power for the fan (and LED's that some have) from?
If you want PWM fan control then refer to your pins.h so see if it's set for 9 or 8 which are both on screw headers on the RAMPS ( above the power input). 


Do I need to use high temp teflon wire for the heated bed or the extruder? (I bought a couple of meters just in case)
 
If you are using a heater cartridge, it comes with appropriate wire. You should use the teflon coated wire on anything close to the heated portion of the hotend, but we are only talking around and inch or 2, not meters :)  
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Angelica Morales 12/17/13 7:35 AM
Jay,
Thanks for adding me to the list, I would love to have a set and once the Kossel Mini is made I'm always willing to pass more parts along.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 12/17/13 7:50 AM
No problem. If you are serious and you have the means, I would start ordering the parts you'll need to complete the printer. To that end, you'll need to decide on the type of linear guides you plan to use.

This is not directed towards you specifically, but to all prospective recipients:
Based on prior sets being sent out, I think Johann's original requirement of "If you want to get your printed parts first, explain why you're more qualified than others to start giving away high quality printed parts soon." be emphasized. At the settings I use each motor frame piece takes over 2hours (6+ hours for a set) to print. Other pieces are 45 minutes. It adds up and I've never timed it, but unless you are serious and have already committed funds to procuring the mechanical and electronics parts, wait to request parts. Having them sitting in a box won't bring you any closer to a working printer. I don't mind printing free parts, I just want something to show for it :)

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Ian Lee, Sr. 12/17/13 11:22 AM
I'm off work all next week and I'm going to print a free set of parts for someone for Christmas.  First person that can post a pic showing they already have most of the other parts acquired wins!  You only pay shipping cost (anywhere in the world).  All other pay-it-forward rules apply.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel James Arslan 12/18/13 10:27 PM
Thanks to Jay Coutur and the epic parts that I received, quite excited to get this underway once everything arrives in the mail for the Kossel Mini. Hopefully it all gets in during the break so I can start constructions and "Pay it forward". Will update as I go but for now will work on getting the pieces that I have ready.

I just received a set of parts from Jay Coutur! After I finish building my Mini Kossel, I will print and give away some sets.

I was also kicking around the idea of setting up a Print It Forward website where people could request/supply sets and track who got them. Would you guys use something like that if I made it?

"This is an image of the set that Jay sent"……… OK, maybe we can talk about some of the parts in the box.
Jay has been doing a lot to support the growing community of people building Deltas.
This is a great opportunity for people to get free parts and I hope I will be able to offer free sets in 2014……I'm just a newbie trying to learn, sorry for the questions.

I recognize most of the parts from the set I got from MakerGeeks but I have questions.
1. There are six endstop holders but the Mini Kossel only uses three endstop switches at the top of the extrusions, (plus one switch for the bed leveling probe.)
So, what are the other three plastic parts that look like endstop holders for?  I also have six endstop holders.

2. There seems to be on the left, three large bed hold downs (rectangular with one rounded side) and three on the right that are of a different design (small).
Did I identify these correctly?

Thanks for the feedback.

I put them at the top and bottom. Not required and Johann originally used wire ties. However, he says to print 3x of the second plate and it had 2 end stops so.
 

2. There seems to be on the left, three large bed hold downs (rectangular with one rounded side) and three on the right that are of a different design (small).

I used the glass tabs, and I include a spiral hold down I grabbed from here. It was made by JohnSL for the his Simple 3DR and I liked it.

Yes, thank you for reminding me of Johann's github files,  I have been looking at his files and comparing the list to what I have.

Regarding the six endstop plastic pieces….you said "I put them at the top and bottom. Not required and Johann originally used wire ties."
You mean the top and bottom of the Hiwin rails.
Like in this picture…..that seems to show wire ties holding a plastic piece at the bottom of the rail.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Richard, Printrbot Simple, building Mini Kossel 12/19/13 8:07 PM

I mean there are wire ties holding the bottom of the rails to the extrusions and blocking the carriages from going off the rails at the bottom……
Ah, that is why, to avoid having the carriages go off at the bottom…..OK, the parts are starting to make more sense now….
I made a lot of progress today with the instructions and plan for the build thanks to all the feedback I got.
Thank you.

I am ordering all the parts for the kossel mini right now. The linear rails and carriages are on the way. I have some stepper motors coming to me as well and I just bought a ramps 1.4 board. I'm waiting on a shipping quote from tridprinting.com for the big purchase.

Can I get a set of printed parts,please?

I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

I also have a mail box in Blaine, Washington.

I would prefer to have them shipped to Canada but it depends on the shipping cost.

I've received some requests for printed parts from the original Mini Kossel. So here's the deal:

Hi Jay,
I need a set of kossel mini printed parts. I am going to use rollers. I agree to honor the geek code and also can help in another way.
I have 6 extra misumi 15mm 600 mm extrusions if anyone wants them, they are free.
I will take any color as long as its white or natural for my parts.
Can you help me?
Thanks,

  Generally the group likes to see pictures of most or a majority of the major parts. Things like motors, Arduino/RAMPS/drivers, JHead, belts, rails, etc.

BTW, I have orange PLA and can print you a set once you show the parts.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Aaron Milligan 2/24/15 2:08 PM
Richard,

Please read some of the posts in this thread. As I just said on a post right above yours, we'll want to see a few things first, and since users are all over the world, you need to tell us where you are. Basically, we'll want to know you've done your research, have most of your pats, and will be able to build a successful printer that you will then use to print someone else a set of parts. I'm especially curious about how you intend on using wood, and how you will integrate that into the printed parts, especially considering that the aluminum extrusion amounts to only about $35 of the total cost to make a Kossel Mini.

-Aaron
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Richard Fox 2/24/15 7:54 PM
I know that the extrusions for a kossel are in the $35 range and I can get a full set of printed parts and the extrusions at makergeeks.com for $150. I am currently unemployed and I am trying to do this project as cheaply as I can and as a learning experience to put on a resume.

I'm working from http://www.instructables.com/id/Deltatwister-The-Diy-Sub-400-3d-Printer-made-with-/ I have all the electronics and a Mk2 heat bed on the way trying to find the screws locally for the bowden extruder but i have the printed parts for that. using wood for the frame as in the ible. Already have marlin programmed into the arduino mega and so far that is working.  

Some of my progress can be seen here:



I am in Woodbridge Virginia.

I said i was in because i liked the idea of the pay it forward mentality of the original thread but as I see from this and the 3dprinting forums site most of the responses i have had have been a lot less than helpful if not down right elitist with the way people have come off about the industry in general....

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Richard Fox 2/25/15 5:28 PM
First let me apologize for my choice of words. reflection often shows one the error of his ways. The only pieces I really need printed at this point is the end effector and the carriages. I'm using LM8UU bearings riding on 8 MM rods spaced at 49.65 mm center to center for the towers.  Color does not matter but my Bowden extruder is black. I have the traxxas ball ends for carbon fiber rods but I also want to experiment with magnetic ball joints had some old Magnetix building parts that are a little over 8 mm cylinder magnets spaced 42.5 mm end to end that connect to .5 inch ball bearings for the rod arms. 

At this point I am down to final dimensions and cutting the top and bottom plates from MDF. still need to decide on if i want to go with mono-filament fishing line or spring for the GT2 belts and pulleys. 

Any other questions can be directed to my main email rfox9...@yahoo.com it's the one I check most often. Like i said earlier I am working from a project at instructables.com and rwgresearch.com 

Thank you for your patience 73 KI4GCX.

Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Steve Denton 3/26/15 6:58 PM
Hoping someone can help, I'm needing 3 parts printed (I think we only need 3) pretty quickly (next few days - I'm in the U.S.) - here is the situation:

My daughter is building a Raspberry Pi controlled Kossel Mini for her 6th grade Passion Project at school. We've got all the parts, RPi is up and running, she built a power supply from an old ATX power supply (learnt to solder, she also wired in some USB ports salvaged from an old laptop that will charge her iPhone as well as running the RPi). As such, she has about 3 weeks left to get this printer up and running so she can demo it at school, so all her evenings/weekends will be spent on this until it is done.

We bought a Custom printed parts set from a certain online retailer, but didn't check out there reputation well enough (lots of complaints about them), and they've now stopped responding to my emails. The kit was supposed to contain all printed parts, and the vertical motion was supposed to use the shower tub rollers (we are on a budget). However there are two problems:
1) the carriages they sent simply don't work with the shower rollers, there is no way they will fit on the 15x15 rails, way too tight (by several milimeters). I'm guessing they are sized for the Delrin rollers, I'm currently trying to figure out dimensions etc to make sure - hopefully buying the rollers will solve that problem.
2) the parts set is completely missing the three parts that screw into the vertical carriage ( the parts that the belt and rods connect to). These are the three parts we need printed asap, and the company we bought the kit from aren't responding.

If anyone can help please let us know. We'll be more than happy to print a couple of sets for people in this group once we are up and running.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Leary 3/26/15 9:32 PM
Steve, 
  If you can point me to the STLs I'll print the parts for you.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jesse Shipe 5/26/15 9:21 AM
Hi all. If anyone is still doing this, I could use a set of printed parts!

This is my first build and it seems like I've been researching endlessly. Sticking to a straightforward Kossel Mini build. Finally pulled the trigger on most of my parts.

Just ordered my extrusions, rails, heated bed, glass, and assorted small parts and filament from RobotDigg.

Also ordered Azteeg X5 Mini from Panucatt.

PSU coming from Amazon, and everything else will be from TriD Printing.

I wanted to see if anyone was willing to hook me up with printed parts before placing my order at TriD so that I could include them in my order if not.

I'll post confirmation pics once things arrive. Thanks in advance!

OH, and color doesn't matter... beggars can't be choosers!
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel David Crocker 5/26/15 9:24 AM

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jesse Shipe 5/26/15 10:35 AM
David, I realized  almost immediately that I forgot my location, and once I read your message that I didn't mention the altered extrusion size.

Since I am using 2020 that's out, of course, but thank you so much for the offer. It's really great how helpful the online community is!
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 5/27/15 9:36 AM
Hmm your "Sticking to a straightforward Kossel Mini build" and the reply blow are in conflict. Unless there is a Kossel mini with 2020 parts depot, where are you sourcing the design parts?

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jesse Shipe 5/27/15 7:22 PM
Forgive my oversight. You're not wrong there, but the switch to 2020 is the only point where I'm straying. From what I've read, there's no question the 2020 is quite a bit more robust in actual use. I'd rather get it right the first time.

I have the STL for the 2020 build that TriD's kit uses. If someone's willing to help me out I'll provide the file. Apparently it was on Thingiverse or YouMagine at some point, but I can't find it there now. I'd rather not post it publicly since it's not my work. (TriD was kind enough to supply it via e-mail.)



Hmm your "Sticking to a straightforward Kossel Mini build" and the reply blow are in conflict. Unless there is a Kossel mini with 2020 parts depot, where are you sourcing the design parts?

Thanks, I'll look into that.

Thank you for posting.

Will be starting mine shortly.

Did you see that guy by the name of "Jay" who replied a bit further up?  He is the same guy who owns that repository of 2020 parts you just posted the link too. :-)

And if you look at this top level github you will also find his awesome Visual Calculator. Very handy if you decide you want to wander into the wild side and alter the size from the standard 600 x 240.

Ha! You guys are just messing me now. ;)

I'm admittedly still an FNG, so I didn't make the connection. In any case, thanks for your nice work on the parts! They look great. As a graphic artist, I like that the Kossel parts have a bit more aesthetic appeal than most other designs out there.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 5/28/15 11:45 AM
No not messing with you. there a dozens of 2020 designs (Wolfman Jim has one amoung them) and it's important to identify the parameters like:
  1. What size screws? I used 3mm and matching Mitsumi t-nuts
  2. What hot end
  3. What type of carriage - printed, wheeled, or linear guide
  4. What type of build surface mount (for FSR sensors)
Going to a 2020 is another step up a steep learning curve and so before you start buying parts you should have an idea of what you want it to be. The visual calculator will let you do that to a degree, since I wrote it for the parts I was using. Good luck, there have been a lot of pay it forward recipients. You pulled up the original thread by Johann and there are other threads with a link to a spreadsheet of senders and recipients. You may want to post your request there too.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jesse Shipe 5/28/15 12:53 PM
That makes sense. I get what you mean about the number of designs. One of the toughest aspects of this so far has simply been trying to make usable sense of all the scattered information.

Most of what you have outlined I've already decided on (or at least I think I have!)
  • 3mm hardware from TriD kit, which AFAIK is designed for use with your parts.
  • .35mm RPW j-head
  • 400mm MGN-12H guides
  • 180mmx3mm glass bed
If there's another more appropriate thread I'll certainly look that up. I only posted here because I found it via a link on TriD Printing's site and it had replies from the last month or so.

How much does switching to 2020 affect the design? I assumed the geometry inside the frame would be generally unchanged so that other parts would remain unchanged. I can see how that could be a dangerous assumption if that's not the case.

Thanks for the help. It is a steep learning curve for sure.
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jay Couture 5/28/15 5:15 PM
I designed the parts for the 2020 extrusion to be a direct replacement. I only had to redesign some parts to fit some bigger THK linear guides on my Kossel.

Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel John Manyik 5/28/15 6:18 PM
Hey guys, I would like a set of Kossel parts if someone can help me out.

My RAMPS board and motors arrived today with the rest of the parts coming from Robotdigg and TriDprinting. Picture of parts

I'm using 2020 aluminium extrusion with M5 screws for the frame. The carriage I plan on using is the pup style with 625 flanged barrings. The carriage STL can be found here. I will also need the base glass clamps found here for the FSR sensors. 

The color of the parts doesn't matter. I am in Indiana, USA

Thanks

My company is currently making available printed delta kits, mini and 2020 versions, for a fair price.

I have decided that for every three delta kits we sell, I will donate a full kit to the members of this group.

The website is ProTech3D.com and I look forward to seeing how many of these I can give away in the near future. As to be fair lets put a one year time limit on this offer. Also any sale of the delta kits not just to people in this group.

Right now I currently have one order under this offer for a set of the 2020 version. 

In addition to deltas we can print pretty much any open source kit however they do not count towards this offer.

Thank you!

I've received some requests for printed parts from the original Mini Kossel. So here's the deal:

* I'm going to make some Mini Kossel printed parts kits.
* I'm going to give them away for free (as in beer).
* Some kits may include some non-printed parts.
* Free international shipping is included.
* No delivery schedule, maybe only one kit per month.

But there's no such thing as a free lunch. If you want to receive a free kit, you must swear by your geek honor:

* To complete your Mini Kossel and tune it well.
* To print two (2) Mini Kossel kits and also give them away for free.
* To make your recipients agree to the same rule.

After giving away the 2 free kits, you may sell printed parts for any price you want.

If you're interested, please reply to this thread (or private email if you prefer) and let me know your favorite PLA color and mailing address.

If you want to get your printed parts first, explain why you're more qualified than others to start giving away high quality printed parts soon.

Cheers,
Johann
Re: Free printed parts for Mini Kossel Jeff Short 6/7/15 7:29 AM
John,

Are you still needing a set of parts?  I live in Indianapolis and would be happy to print you a set of parts.  Right now I'm the middle of printing a set of parts for a Kossel Alt printer and should be done with a week.  After that I should be able to help you out.  I know you said color doesn't matter, but I have yellow, red, brown, pink, orange, natural, blue and neon green filaments.  That said, pick a color and I'll print you a set.

-Jeff

it's often been requested that before anyone ships out printed parts, those asking show they are serious and have already purchased most of the needed parts. Pictures have been the generally accepted requirement.
