Turn K8200 into something like big prusa

by Justy_guy

I'll try to turn my old, anything but not reliable K8200 into something like prusa or CR10 with 300x300mm heatbed (I didn't figure out Z height yet, but seems like it can be way over 200mm). Already I have just frame and motors left, everything else is rebuilded :D... (Ramps 1.4 full graphic smart controler, 1,75mm direct drive extruder, J-head v6, GT2 belts, optical X and Y endstops, of course custom marlin fw and a lot more...)
Ithink I can use MK2S/MK2.5 X axis and extruder assembly, with one Z motor and belt connected leadscrews.
Is anyone interested in this project?

Pro switch box for K8200

by Justy_guy

I have this idea for looooong time... It is a printed case for a small switch. It has 2 main moving parts: protected start button and emergency stop button...
I need some ideas for this project like where to mount it on the printer and how to mount it on the printer.
