Compliments for your great work!
I whish to start soft with the modification and I whish to transform the original effector into a magnetic one. Did you have the drawing/measures of the original effector ?

Many thanks,

I'm sorry, unfortunately not.

Hi mrac1

What brand or motor do you recommend to upgrade the motors to 1.8 degrees to 0.9?
And why do you change the tooth pulleys from 20 to 16?

Thank you again for your great job!

The upgrade is not necessary, the print quality changes only minimally. But it's the High Torque Motor from E3D.
I changed the belt wheels because I use high-quality Misumi 3GT pulleys for Gates 3GT belts. Additionally, you get a higher resolution with the smaller pulley.

Hi what is the thickness of the 12x12mm magnets that you are using for the magball ends? Thanks in advance

The magnets are round - 12 mm in diameter and 12 mm high

Hi, this upgrade will improve print quality or what are the improves that you will get? Thank you ;)

The joints in my kit were very bad and the firmware on the stock board is closed source.

Funny thing is, I've already done it and now I've been printing it like this for about 100 hours. Works very well.I will upload the files soon

Are you planning to use smart effector in future ?

i'm searching for the front panel parts. Could i get the STL's?

It's in the zip-file (frontplate.stl). :)

Looks great. What diameter / length rods do I need to ask for? I presume you bought from https://www.magballarms.com?

Did you read the description? ;)
