    Lightbulb 3D printed copier/printer parts.

    So here is the first 3D printed part to be tested to see if it would work as a replacement.
    Real silly part took 3 minutes to crate the STL file, 3 more to slice it and 25min to print at 0.05mm(50micron) layer height.
    Used PETG filament, higher deformation temp and a slight flex to it.

    DS rollers for the 223 Konica Minolta machine.

    With a 0.1mm nozzle gears would be tricky but possible.
    Now busy to find a way to print(model) the transfer roller guide pieces.


    Anyone here thinking of other parts that would be helpful to try and print.
    Or printed parts already?
    Whatever

    As the technology improves there will not be a need to order smaller parts like this. Just download the file from the manufacture and print it. Now so that the manufacture does not lose money they will probably have a proprietary software for the files that you must pay for each print.

    Forgot that i like this kind of thing. Went ape on the detail.

    Not sure what kind of injection molding they used here as there is no draft to be found and very complex for normal molding...
    The 3D printable version would look a lot different. Did not need to add all those features. Got carried away.

    Checked the video. I have a CR20 with power fail resume. Its got a V2 board and running 24V. Does not suffer from any problems.
    Got no mods done to it yet and does not seem to need any. O except for throwing out that horrible build sheet, replaced that with glass. Hairspray is my adhesion method of choice.
    Sticks down ABS like nothing else out there.

    Very particular about the quality...

    Just say i spend more time tuning than printing...
    Whatever
