Kinematic Coupled Mounts
Kinematic Coupled Mounts for the SolidCore printer’s z-axis bed brackets. The kinematic bed on the Solidcore CoreXY seats onto steel spheres which allow the build plate to pivot while being properly constrained at 3 points of contact. The pivot balls that attach the Z-axis bed mounts can be held into position by the weight of the bed or magnetic force. Dowel pins are used to ensure that there is zero lateral play on the bed while lifting or heating.
Thermal Expansion & Bed Flatness
The advantage of a kinematic bed mount is that the defined plane of the bed can maintain flatness and properly expand without bending the plate.
Kinematic Coupling Kit Includes
1 x Neutral Coupling Mount ( 3- Pins)
2 x Straight Coupling Mounts (2- Parallel Pins
Each Coupled Mounting Base has a M4 thread hole to attach to the z-axis bed brackets. The mounting base or pad can rotate and be adjusted. This may also be challenging to line up at the correct angle in order to seat properly. The mounts are not magnetic and the bed held down by gravity.
