Metal Delta KS Campaign Update # 11: Updates and a little more on the Contingency November 22 2016, 5 Comments
The GeckoTek beds are finally here (delivered Friday). We will be inspecting them in the next few days..
Secondly, about the contingency design, I did say I'd post some drawings of them, so here they are:
The L brackets will allow the vertical extrusions to be adjustable to ensure that it's perpendicular to the bed.
There will be a steel tray to mount the electronics. The tray mounts directly to the extrusions to provide additional rigidity. This plus the CNC round bracket (in the previous update) will hold the 3 extrusions firmly.
This is a very simple motor mount design which uses minimal sheet metal, and yet would be very rigid in the direction of the belt movements. It would mount directly onto the aluminum extrusions, and would serve as mounting for the bed as well.
Tonight I have a call with the 3rd party QC company abroad, and they will give us feedback on whether or not the sheet metal factory made the samples to our spec.
If the response if favorable, I'll place the order right away. I'm really hoping to get your kits shipped out asap so that you can enjoy them during the holidays, (and of course we would be happy to start selling these kits during the season as well).
As usual, please contact us if you have any questions via email.
