Old work horse brought back to life


Recommended Posts

Here is the epson 1400 I gave my son. He done one of my other printers on a upgrade. And he asked is he could upgrade this old thing I built acouple years ago as a friction drive ....


Things he done .

New base.

Mkr bare bones board

Nema 23 stepper

800mm rail for drive. 

He added 3 more top fans. (Not for cooling for venting of the uv ink fumes) 

Reworked top cover to hide all wiring..

He getting good at making stuff in the fly with the help of dad.. 

He learning the coading. Really well as well as leading how to use my 3d programs to make part in a stl format for either one of my 3d printers or my 100w co2 laser.. I dont trust him to run my cnc plasma table or my cnc mill yet . 

As in the pics he done some 3d printed parts for the fan covers and a switch box. He also printed the end stop holder and flag for it . he working on a cable chain to hold the damper hoses and the uv /fan wires.  (He wanting to add water cooling to it later down the road he saving up for uv led and water cooling for it.. )
