HyperCube Evolution 3D Printer 3D Printing Files
This digital download contains all the 3D Printable .STLS for the Hypercube Evolution 3D Printer.
The HyperCube Evolution 3D Printer is a CoreXY printer inspired by the excellent HyperCube 3D Printer developed by Tech2C. The belt arrangement on that printer was the neatest CoreXY arrangement that I have seen.
I have leveraged the great work that Tech2C has done to refine his design and incorporated this with my own further development to reduce the number of printed parts and simplify the build.
Design goals for the HyperCube Evolution 3D Printer:
- Increase the stiffness of the printer to further improve / reduce vibration artefacts.
- 3030 extrusion used for the frame
- 2020 extrusion used for the build platform frame
- 8mm diameter X rails
- 10mm diameter Y rails
- 12mm diameter Z rails
- Minimise the size of the printer for the chosen build volume.
- Parametric CAD design in Autodesk Inventor
- Excel spreadsheet provided to allow for customised printer size
The prototype printer, with a build volume of 300 x 300 x 300, met with all expectation but did show some small bed vibrations when printing at high speed due to the large bed and counter levered design. Therefore, two build options are available. A single Z axis version for smaller build platforms and a double Z axis version for larger beds or those wishing for a rock solid build platform.
The Evolution also features a quick attach X carriage to allow for interchangeable tools e.g. the extruder mount and a DTI mount for tramming the build platform.
More to come over the next few weeks as I'm awaiting parts for upgrade the prototype to use the double Z axis, and also the parts to convert my Geetech Prusa i3 into another HyperCube Evolution.
