Extended Bed 3d Printer! Huge Tronxy X1.

  • Published on Sep 13, 2018
  • This video is me trying my best to show and describe my Tronxy X1 3d printer that I extended in one axis. I came up with this idea a while back but have just gotten around to filming and posting the video about it. I've recently found a few others doing similar things:

    Check these guys out! they did a great job.

    I hope you like the video and the project! files will be available upon request, even if the project is'nt quite ready for public use. I believe strongly in the open source idea and can't wait to see more people building and modifying similar projects!

    Fantastic! This and your small (cd changer) design has really got me inspired. Keep up the good work.

    This is some great new thinking (for me) about the printing process of 3D printers. I've just recently bought a Creality Ender 3 printer, but I'm following the advancements and the community since 2014-2015 and not everyday you find something innovative enough to make you understand that this is only the beginning of home 3D printing and that we can go in so many directions in the future.

    I'd love to see some files for this, modifying a CR-10 to be 300mm x 1000mm would be awesome.

    Hey, I saw you and your printer at MRRF this year. I’m glad you improved the design cause it looks great. Keep at it!

    In future videos, can you process your audio more? For example getting all the audio to the same volume using something like the premiere tool to adjust all clips to the same peak value.

    Saw this on Toms MRRF film. You have inspired me to mod my Ender 3 in the Y as it uses 2040 native for support. It will need guide rails but the main drive can be extended easily. May go to NEMA 23 because of the length. Awesome stuff!

    Great video man! The newest version is looking awesome. Can't wait to see it in person.

    ive seen this now a couple differnt times an i got a kingroon kp3 specificly cause it was design really similar to the tronxy x1 so i could do something like this but didnt realize its y axis was on a mgn12 rail til i recieved it in the mail. so far ive just been running it as is with partcooling upgraded an it prints insanely fast pretty much cuts the print times in half comparing it to my ender 5 while producing almost as good of quality prints. each has there stronger points but i decided against moding the kp3 like this, still want to do it but i want to go with a longer mgn12 rail an that will should be pretty stiff. i guess u could do 2 rails one on either side of the 2040 extrusion instead of a single one on the top an that would make it that much more stable. has anyone looked into doing anything like this and how hard would it be to make the bed heated also. this is my biggest issue ive built a couple printers now that ive had no luck finding a heat bed that fit the size i need so i had to go with something smaller

    Thomas Sanladerer's video (Midwest RepRap Festival 2019) showcased many talented builders and pioneers of the 3D printing community and I thought your extended bed build was absolutely amazing!!! totally dig it man you got my sub and like!!!!!

    🤔 Do you have custom settings for this? Since they're usually drop drown from other like printers?

    Hi Luke, I am very impressed with what you had done. Questions:

    Hi Luke, I saw the new version with laser cut pieces at mrrf 2019... Any chance you've got a follow-up video in the works? I'm interested in how you got so many v wheels playing nice together too.

    Are there any designs available for this, or is this ad hoc. Nice job by the way!

    I dig this printer. It would be perfect for printing my wings or RC airplanes

    Better to drive the extended axis with a lead screw?
