CoreXY Belt Routing

CoreXY Belt Routing

CoreXY Belt Routing  One of the most important parts for corexy movement is belt routing. Here’s a guide to the mechanics of corexy belt routing pulley layout in order to get accuracy and constant belt tension. Belt Routing Methods There are two main ways to implement the corexy belt path. Either a stacked pulley arrangement…

CoreXY Kinematics

CoreXY Kinematics Explained? The corexy kinematics mechanical arrangement includes a unique motor movement where the X or Y motor move together or opposite of each other to move the carriage from left to right or towards or away . If you were to move just one motor you would see the print head move diagonal..…

Kinematic Bed Mounting

SolidCore CoreXY Z-Axis Bed Leveling We recently started working on the SolidCore 3d printer‘s bed leveling and mounting system. The z-axis uses a 3-point kinematic bed mounting with magnetic pivot spheres on each mount This properly constrains the bed at 3 points of contact. The original SolidCore Z-axis design was somewhat primitive because we only…

Prusa XL CoreXY

Unfortunately the picture above isn’t the new Prusa XL. It’s a clip from Joel Telling’s 3D Printing Nerd Youtube video. While there’s been much talk about the circulating screen shot from Joel Telling’s tour on the internet, Josef commented in a Reddit post that “No some lab member put mk3 into an cube frame. Sorry…

Custom CoreXY Parts

So we got a message not to long ago from our buddy Mike Fisher of the MakersMic show. In an earlier discussion about each others new corexy printer build we had talked about reducing the amount of machined 3d printer parts, available materials and making the machines scale able with more modular components. Mike had a new corexy…
