PrintShift 3.0 Build Series: Step 1
This page details how to print the PrintShift parts. I like to print the parts on the Prusa Mini that’s destined to be PrintShift-ed - that way you know the machine is up and running and ready to go. If your mini’s acting up or failing in any way… repair it before you upgrade it!
- Prusa Mini. Yeah. The whole thing.
- You need some high-temperature filament like ABS, PETG, ASA or better for the bed-touching components.
- You need some stiff filament for the Motor Mount and Standoff - PLA is fine, pretty much anything except TPU.
- The Prusa Mini includes all the tools that you’ll need for this portion of the build :-)
- I do generally use my own 2.5mm allen wrench
- And some side cutters to trim the zip tie
- Build your Prusa Mini! Just follow Prusa’s instructions
- Test Print! Prusa includes a few on the USB stick that comes with the printer.
- Print Large PrintShift Parts
- Print PrintShift - all small parts
- This is all of the other parts; they need to handle the higher temperatures of the bed, so must be ABS, ASA, PETG or similar.
- Mine are printed in blue ABS, .25mm layers, 3 perimeters, 50% cubic infill. They need to be strong, rigid, and stable up to 100C.
- Small Parts
- Print (optional) Raspberry Pi components
- Gather the rest of the parts from the Bill of Materials and start Building the Belt!
