worse printer ever made by this guy to many small nuts and bolts half dont even fit in the hole there meant to go in never buy this printer
even auto leave don't work but he sticks a video up not showing or telling anything and the wires not very safe as you can see from the pic there every were THIS IS NOT A UPGRADE BUT MORE OF A DOWN GRADE

SO RYAN HOW DOES THE AUTO BED LEVELLING WORK OR DO YOU EVEN KNOW and no showing a video with notting on it AS I CAN DO THAT

Couldn't disagree with this comment more strongly. I ordered this kit, it arrived within the specified lead time, and the components within the kit are top notch. As a first time 3D printer builder, it took me 3 evenings for the mechanical build, and 1 evening to wire it up. The instructions are very clear, and every component was bagged and labelled. Brilliant kit, and very good service from Ooznest. Recommended.

and 1 more point i would like to make about ozznest and not his printer.i have had notting but very good service from Ooznest for other parts and i do and have recommended him to friends.my only comments are on the printer and not his service.

lol you should have seen it before he did up his site as its all new now after i left this review of his printer.its a good printer yes,good price as well.but he never told anyone about auto levelling being removed his marlin at the time was not updated to state this at the time.it has more nuts and bolts than a normal prusa i3.and As a first time 3D printer builder on my 1st printer took 3 hours,so his printer was sloppy at the time but i have seen he has worked on the files and some other stuff.

Hi,

I am very sorry to hear your comments, but i believe them to be very harsh and unfair.

I say it is a unfair comment, because as far as i am aware you did not purchase a kit off of us. There being a lot of small nuts and bolts is in the nature of it being a kit, and would be found on any printer of this type.

When purchased as a kit, we send the plastic parts out with all nuts pre-inserted, because it is a tricky job, and takes practise. They have to be a tight fit, otherwise they wouldn't tighten when they are screwed into.

Regarding the auto levelling, we have removed this feature from printer many months ago, because we found it to be an unneeded complication. Unless the printer is going to be moved often, then there isn't a need to have auto-levelling.

Is it possible to have a read.me file available? I am about to build a Geeetech i3 X and have no idea what some of these parts have an advantage over the old ones. Some of these are self explanatory, but some are not, I have tried to look some of these up and they don't have a description either =/

Hi,

Sorry i don't have a readme file, if there is any specific part i can help with?

All the items that have "axis" in their name lol. I have seen a few videos of other upgrades addressing the need for stability in the frame, some of the designs were different, however some of these items (although they may not be) seem like duplicates of the same support. Thanks for the feedback =)

Most of the ones labelled axis are very similar to the original prusa design. Some others are remixed from other modifications.

Hi Ooznest,

Could you please check your STL file of the Z Axis Nut Trap. It seems that the file is not square to the axis and opening it up in NetFabb you can see that the sides are not vertical. I hope that all made sense!! Thanks for a great design and my build is well on the way.
Steve....

Hi,

I just took a look at the stl, and it wasn't flat with a plane, was 1 deg out, making it not look square. I have fixed it, and uploaded it. Take a look now.

Trying to import X-Axis-Carriage.stl to solidworks at my school and i keep getting the "A facet normal problem was found with one of the facets in the file. Please check the STL file." for ALL parts. I researched the issue and it seems like there is no fix. I need to modify this part so the mounting holes match the BQ Prusa i3 Hephestos extruther/hotend bracket instead of the Hexagon. Is there any way to get a hold of the STEP or IGES file version of all the parts?? or if it's made in 123D then that file type.

Update:
Never mind i got it working in google sketchup with Import/Export STL plugin and then flagged the top setting in options when importing

Hi,

Sorry for your problems, glad you got around it. Let me know if you still need the STEP Files.

Best Regards

Ryan Lock

It would be nice to have the STEP files as it would be a bit easier to edit. you could add them all to a zip file and the add it to the file list :)

Hi,

Ok, i have added it to my list of things to do.

Hi there have you got drawings or step files for the aluminium frame and bed?

Sorry I did just notice there is a dxf. My bad.

Sorry but I don't quite understand what the auto levelling is doing and how would I fit the current endstop boards?

Hello, on the left z-axis isolator there is a slot for a mechanical endstop (The ones with a PCB Board) this isolator moves the z-axis up and down. When auto bed levelling the z-axis goes down and the tip of the nozzle touches the bed and stops, however the z-axis isolators carrying on going down, this release the mechanical endstop. Apply an offset in the firmware and then the printer knows when the bed is. I will probably upload a video of it in action soon.

Hey ooznest did you make a video already? because I have trouble understanding!

Hi,

We did do one here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9UKOeEehVE

Thank you very much! but what activates the Z endstop?
Is it the motor coupling? or the extruder touching the bed?

Sorry I don't understand

Hi,

When the nozzle hits the bed it stops the z-axis from going down any further. The Z-Axis isolator, which has the endstop, carries on going down, this releases the endstop and stops the printer.

Ryan Lock

Okey thank you very much!
Keep on the good work! ;)
