fr3d i3 – What to do with an Anet A8?

#1 the idea – So after seeing @ChuckHellebuyck and @toms3dp with their cheap builds it gave me an itch to do my own #BuildIt #fr3di3 #2 the outline – build a sub £300 open source printer #fr3di3 #3DPrinter #3DPrinting #3 the target – A #3DPrinter thats reliable, safe, easy to use and prints as well as others 10x the price. #4 the hope – it wont go boom! #bluesmoke #5 the budget – So to reiterate less than £300 #3DPrinter #3DPrinting #ItsAnAddiction #fredi3 #6 the beginning – first stop need bits, purchased an #AnetA8 for £130!? from @TheGearbest was cheaper than buying components separately #Seriously #wtf #7 the design decision – Well #Prusai3 style of course duh!! sorry @josefprusa another one 🙁 #8 the inception – #AnetA8 but not as you know it more #Prusa than pony. #9 the final design – #Prusai3MK2S / #AnetA8 / #2020 = #FrankenPoodle or just another #Prusai3 variant or #fr3di3. #10 the mechanical – All #AnetA8 baby 😉 #11 the electrical – Again all #AnetA8 other than the safety bits. #12 the aluminium – @Motedis 2020 Aluminium Extrusions. #13 the printed – All PETG from @RealFilament #NetherlandsRock 🙂 #14 the fasteners – Mostly from #AnetA8 others from my ahem stores ( or more commonly known as Shed ) 🙂 #15 the purchased – @igus_Inc RJ4JP-01-08 bushes, Aluminium Carriage Plate, @E3DOnline Titan Aero upgrade, #Micromake controller and display, @Motedis Extrusions. #16 the firmware – @MarlinFirmware what else for a #Prusa Variant? #17 the build Y axis – #18 the build X axis – #19 the build Z axis – #20 the build hotend – thing of beauty @E3DOnline #TitanAero @josefprusa #21 the build electrical – #Tidyness 🙂 #22 the setup – little bit of this little bit of that, check out bobblejot.com/projects/fr3di3. #fr3di3 #marlin #22 the first move – Ooops!!
