Main Frame 3 Piece Design

6 comments

A quick and simple modification to the main frame that splits it into three pieces for being able to print on smaller beds. I have a Flashforge Dreamer at home with print volume of 9.1” x 5.9” x 5.5”. Needs some superglue to fasten after friction fitting the pieces together. Upcoming revision will provide a better mechanical joinery, and a hinged design for smaller storage volume requirement.

This is an amazing solution to 3D printers with smaller volumes. Is super glue holding them well, even after applying weights of the hardware? How are flexibility abilities?

The superglue does a very good job so far in fastening it all together. The pieces were a tight fit beforehand, so the glue doesn't bear the full load of the hardware by itself. That being said, the hardware is pretty light and its flexibility laterally is good (caused by removal and insertion cycles onto the head, bigger head sizes).

 

I've printed a hinged design now (see below) which takes care of the downward pull of hardware by design and should be strong enough and flexible. M2 screws were used as locking pins. Will post stl files shortly.

Great job on the hinged design!

I think this design and the stl files should go to the official Download section for people to download easily!

The more I read from collaborators the more I believe the dream will come true this year...ideas keep getting better...always room for improvements.

    Hi, not sure if this is still an active project, but I was wondering what micro display unit is recommended/has been used before. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!

    Under what license are the 3d designed eyetap frame?

    My favourite author, Raymond Kurzweil, the leading innovator, thinker, futurist, claims in two of his books ( The Singularity is Near and How to Create a Mind ) that the future of technology lies in an ever increasing symbiosis between biological intelligence and artificial intelligence. I agree with this vision, and realize that the businesses of the future will be those that take into account the ever growing intimacy that we experience with our machines. This is the aim of my virtual memory product. I envision a system that, when attached to a user (either around the neck or in a headset) records video and audio input. The differing sources of information comes together to become what I refer to as “virtual memories". The information is then connected to other virtual “memories” by analyzing patterns that new information shares with old information. In essence, this technology will align sensory input into a coherent structure, just as our biological memory works, except with perfect recall. This is being paired with multiple technologies, such as face and image recognition, to provide the “scenarios” and connections that is used by the software when making connections between memories. This has been a longheld vision of mine. My new experiences with the OpenEyeTap has started me on producing this vision. I would love feedback and ideas regarding the overall idea. I will write another post in the "Software" section outlining what I have completed thus far and what I will continue to create. Cayden Pierce http://piercetechnologi.es
