Born in the gutter of used spools and scrap filament yarns his only desire to look in the eye proprietary and more expensive machines. As his name indicates his DNA combines various printer components and designs refining the best for his purpose. While this project started as an am8 upgrade reusing mostly hardware from the "low-average" anet a8, with open build linear extrusion as standard, was enriched with open build wheels on all 3 axes.
Thanks to sonnylowe of Folgertech for his x axis design his original was redesigned to allow a more modular shoulder.
Y axis was made exclusively from ground up. X carriage was also a prototype. Z axis was a redesign by thaug29 (many thanks)
Many thanks to Spauda01 for various components taken from d-bot and redesigned to fit this work.
Because best value for price was in the mind, x carriage and z plates were made out printable instead of buying the openbuild mini plates. Sadly anet A8 hot end with it's low performance had to go, was replaced with e3d v6.
Size of plate is 300x300x260 with original anetA8 lead screws. The Bastard uses a single 3mm aluminum plate for heatbed with silicon heater, but a conventional bed can be used. Because of openbuild vslot versatility the original A8 bed can be used. You just need to measure the underbed H construction correctly for your needs.
The Bastard uses an atx supply with an additional breakboard. If you like to use a standard led power supply there are many designs available in thingiverse. A mount for two mosfets and the standard anet board is included (mind the size of mosfet though, i use these ones https://www.amazon.de/dp/B071FB7X7T/ref=pe_3044161_185740101_TE_item).
All parts that carry bolts have been printed with abs 0.1 layer and 100% infill. Petg tends to crack under tension and its melting point is lower so it wasn't an option.
I've included a bom.txt with all additional required components and some building instruction. Feel free to ask me anything that needs clarification.
You need to tap with a M5 drill the lower side of vertical 2040 profiles for the rubber feet.
