    Re: 3D printed copier/printer parts.

    Did not come out to bad. Printed it in 2 parts and glued together.
    Will need a jig to glue them in the exact place.

    What 3D program are you designing with? What material are you printing with?
    Did you know that Methylene Chloride makes a Great Plastic Welder???3D printed copier/printer parts.

    Using Fusion and Slic3rPE for slicing.
    Print mostly with PLA, PETG, HIPS.

    GlueDevil superglue is some serious stuff.
    Will need to check Methylene Chloride out.
    Not sure where i would get some to try.
    Whatever

    Best price I've found!!! Gotta keep the lid on tight since it evaporates quite quickly!!! Can capillary weld with plexiglass/ acrylic...works very well with PLA also!!!

    allan, are you having issues with these parts breaking in the field? Or is this more of just a see what you can 3D build for copier parts? I ask because I've never seen one of those parts on the transfer roller break on these models. Pretty sure we've never had one break at all in the field. I have had some broken in the box when it was shipped, though.

    I love stuff like this and wish I had the skill to 3D model. Of course, if I would have gone into drafting 33+ years ago like I had considered, I would have that skill but wouldn't be servicing copiers.
    Started in the copier service business in the fall of 1988 and have worked at the same company since then, now the senior tech, since 2000.

    They wear sharp and cant be reused like the older B250 were the transfer rollers did not need to be replaced for this issue and lasted 500K plus.
    The drums scratch bands were those parts touch the drum. Now gaving a parametric 3D model of the part i can look into what need to change to improve the durability.
    Will make them from 2 kinds of plastic. The part toughing the drum with PLA, ABS or PETG and the bushing part from nylon.
    Seemed that they had to choose a material that will serve well as bushing but not the greatest stuff to run against an OPC drum.

    The thing that gets to me here is that i used to do some real awesome stuff in a batch manufacturing shop starting with a 1KW CO2 laser and CNC bender. The machine side had a CNC lathe and a CNC miliing machine.
    Specialized welding and then an assembly section. Mostly made elevator doors, door frames(entrance styles), door drives, car interiors and shaft trimmers. The shop was in a scientific research facility where they rented some floor space out.
    From aircraft parts to vandal proof weather station and what else. Could draft in real time from verbal instructions given by some guy onsite, fax a drawing back and then get go ahead. Fun and frustrating but mostly fun.

    Problem with that was i did know know how valuable those skills where at the time and excepted very little money for it, don't have any engineering degrees to back me up.
    For me swinging a cloth at a copier paid better.

    Get fusion 360 installed on your PC it is cloud based with limited offline.
    Follow the tutorials it not that painful take your time.

    Drafting is fun but you need to get into it. I have a hard time sitting down for hours on end.
    Whatever

    Did this to fit in my fishing bag. Laser cut from 3mm stabilized MDF. Done by the local hobby shop.
    Took me a couple of hours to create the Multi body in-place to get the 2D profiles i needed.
    Super glues together.

    You don't need professional plans to get parts done. As long as you can submit it with enough info for them not to mess it up most manufacturers will work with it.
    Whatever
