Presenting the Hypercube Fusion
Many thanks to Tech2C and Scott Alford for the original and evolution versions of the hypercube. Also thanks to Christopher Vergien for his piezzo tool mount which will be part of the tool changer.
Please note, at this time there is no tool head. I will upload one as soon as I have a working one. The fusion files will change. Also note that the MGN15 rail carriage in the fusion file Carrige v2.f3d is not a MGN15H therefore the holes do not line up. The holes are correct for a MGN15H carriage.

- Linear rails making X and Y very stable and rigid.
- Auto endstops for X and Y using TMC-2130s or optical end stops.
- Tool changer similar to what E3D is currently demoing.
Hardware requirements (for the 300x300x300 version of the hypercube):
- 2 x MGN12H 405 mm
- 1 x MGN15H 470 mm
I ordered the rails from https://benqicncparts.aliexpress.com/store/1911361 which will cut them to your desired length. Please note that I had the rails cut short enough that there is a few mm on each end. Because of the motor and roller mounts you will never reach the end anyways.
Parts that are different from regular Hypercube Evolution:
- Carriage belt clamps
- XY intersect
- Both motor mounts
- Both roller mounts
- The carriage has mounts for optical sensors, however the two rail mounts need a flag of some sort to trigger the ends stops if used. There are also holes on top of the rail mounts to allow for a Y endstop flag.
Most parts are identical to the original Hypercube Evolution. The main changes are the mounting hardware for the rails and the X and Y motors to keep the belts at the right position and make space for the rail.
