It`s almost ready.
The new CartesioM and CartesioW.
Read on after the break
main changes :
- new plug and play electronics on 24V
- new linear slides
- easy access to object
- Z-axis more stable
- Multi ToolHolder
Assembling the electronics takes about 10 min.
There are 3 external stepperdrivers for more power.
X,Y speed is 500mm/sec now.
Z speed 20mm/sec
The new linear slides are much more robust.
It takes about 1/5 of the time to get them aligned properly, and they go a lot faster.
All this fancyness comes with a price, and that is the main reason the price of the Cartesio has gone up.
The Z-axis has only 3 TR12x3 spindles,
but gained a heavy linear slide.
This to ensure you have a straight Z-axis.
This means you can add multiple tools at the same time.
- 2x dual extruder
- 1x dual extruder and 1x single extruder
- 1x dual extruder and 1x engraver
A lot of re-designing had the focus on quicker assembly to accommodate the ever growing demand.
A lot of printed parts are changed to laser-cut metal parts.
But the purist amongst us can also make them printed :)
