thank you for the answer and apologize for the disturbance, but nowhere do I see the dimensions for aluminum profiles 3030 and 2020, look bad or bugs info?

Sorry for the typo...
The correct address of Hypercube evo i https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2254103
Already corrected in earl answer.

Hello, I really like your printer, and I wanted to ask if you would give me some documentation or a list of parts, I'd like to build a HEVO and looking for something with the size of 400-450x400-450x500-600, maybe help me or advice, thank you and have a nice day

Hi, the complete belt version is well documented at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2254103; from there you can take all items but X and Y axes, obviously, wich are explained in this project.
About dimensioning IMO those 450mm lengths are too much without adding a10mm rod alignment to X and Y; that way you can be assured against lead screws flextion due to that length.
Furthermore all you've to do is lengthening all related profiles at your will.

adding a10mm rod alignment to X and Y ??? elaborate ?

Not so much elaborate, just add an 8mm rod aside left and right Y , add an 8mm rod at rear of X axis too.
You'll have to redesign all that stuff...

with tr8 leadscrew this printer can be multipropose ? cnc milling ?

errr.... that's not the supposed work for this design; the lack of guiding rods make the system not so sturdy as requested by milling.
I'd suggest only laser, pencil ans so on...

why do you make this kind of design ? with leadscrew

because of budget, Helix lead screw are too expenasive to me...

Did you use T8 screw for X axis?
I see, from picture, motor, junction, screw, nut, bearings...screw is fixed on motor side and in opposite side (bearings). In the middle there is the nut. No wobble?

As far as I can see there's no wobble, with perfectly straight lead screws (check them carefully before assembling).

ok thanks, which limits do you have in speed? As far as I know T8 may not move fast

Now I print usually at 3600mm/min without problems, good enough for quality and time.

can you confirm the print size? im looking for 450x450x600....

I don't see any problem to enlarge the box, just buy longer 3030 and 2020 profiles, lead screws and rods. The tricky part is Z axis, I don't see actual mechanical design is good for 600mm, i'd opt for adding 4 2020 v-shape rails and four roller carriages; furthermore take in count that you'd buy two powerful motors due to Z carriage weight...

i dont see the z axis being an issue i have a printer now with a dual z axis, works fine.. the point is to remove all belts from a sizeable printer. if i did 4 rails and rollers id be back on using belts.

Wow, that's a tall printer! If you can confirm there's no wobble with such tall leadscrew and rods, then my pavented risks are blown away.
Have a nice work!
(please post some picture when ready, that 450x450x600 is intriguing...)
