This is a coreXY rebuild for the Anet A8. It's a new slim version of the Core A8. Can be built using the parts from an Anet A8 plus some pullies, belts and frame material.
Differences over the Core A8:
-Much fewer parts and printing time.
-Strong mountings and Clamps.
-Some belts hide inside the frame.
-New parts are designed to require minimum support when printing if any.
-X and Y overall size is the same. Z height is 115mm shorter but still has 310 Z build volume.
-Z carriage is lighter and doesn't require and frame parts.
-Belt tensioning system removed from the carriage and adjustable motor mounts are used for belt tensioning.
Still has 310x310 build volume.
Still doesn't get the full 310 with the stock X carriage.
Still uses the stock Anet A8 Y carriage so accepts any bed that will fit on that.
Has extension parts for a 310x310 bed to be mounted on the original Y carriage.
E3D-V6 carriage. For the full 310x310 build volume.
Moving Extruder mount.
I printed all parts at 0.3mm layer height to speed up printing time with 15% infill and 3 walls at 0.4mm.
Includes a Y carriage to support the stock Anet A8 X carriage and most other X carriages for the Anet A8. If it is the same width of the stock carriage and uses the same belt mounting bolt holes it should be compatible.
Also has a Y carriage to support the Hyper Cube X carriages.
E3D-V6 carriage using horizontal rods:
There has been one made from the round tube if that's what you want to use.
The frame is designed around square tubing 25.4x25.4mm with a wall thickness of 1.4mm - 2mm.
There is a remix for 25mm framing:
Also for 20mm framing:
