    Help with scavenged parts.

    I'm collecting bits to build a printer, it's more fun that way.

    Today I stripped an inkjet printer for its guide rail which is 7.9mm in diameter is that close enough to use in a 8mm linear bearing?.

    I also grabbed 2 small motors but they are two wire so are they any good? I thought steppers hand three wires.

    Dexion is easy to lock square and very adjustable, has anybody tried it as a frame?


    Regards. Aamcle

    Hey Aamcle,

    I've been considering building my own printer as a school side project and came here looking for some parts info too. Sorry I can't offer much help with answering your questions, but I was also thinking about a Dexion frame. Seems like the most simple option tbh. Would you mind posting some pics of your progress so far? I'd love to know if this route works out for you.

    Cheers, Brandon

    Sadly my build is going backwards, it seems to be cheaper to get a second hand printer then print the bits I need and resell the printer!!


    I has considering a Core XY design :- H-Bot and Core XY | OpenBuilds I think Dexion would be best suited for a large printer but for a school project you might want to keep the belts and pulleys away from from fingers.

    Hi Aamcle,
    Why were you thinking Dexion instead of the V-Slot? Just curious.
    I am also new here and still in the exploration phase
