Horizontal X-axis for Anet A8 and more that improve print quality and print speeds.
I'm currently running the printer at 95mm/s with a X-acceleration at 5000mm/s (in the printer, so it's real), 400mm/s travel speed (with 6000mm/s acceleration in travel) without trouble.
(See the orange image for print results with the settings above.)
- M3 nuts - ~5 pcs
- M3 screws - 11 pcs (2 for securing V6 to sleigh, 8 for the brass nut for threaded Z-rod, 1 for the pulley on the tensioner)
- M4 nuts - 4 pcs (2 for tensioner (with wheel) and 2 for belt mount)
- M4 screw - 3pcs (longer is better, around 40mm is needed)
- New belt (Likely, I did need that.)
- Some washers
- zip ties (For belt and strain relief on cables to hotend) - PLEASE, use strain relief!!
You will need a tap (or some force) for the M3 and M4.
(These are not vital to be metric, but if you use imperial you may need to mount nuts with a soldering iron or with some glue.)
LM8UU bearings, and I use a total of 6 of them (4 in the sleigh and 2 for Z). There is room for longer bearings (or double) for the Z-axis if you want more stability
Brim is recommended. Some parts have a low area in the suggested print direction.
All files can be printed in the imported direction.
