Extreme Hardware Mod: 16mm Z axis, 10mm X and Y, E3dv6, GT2
Hi, everybody, I am getting quite good results from my DaVinci 1.0, running on repetier host, after solving all the known issues.

I have glued the brass bearings, changed the heater connectors, added extruder fan…

But my company recently bought a Zortrax M200, which printed parts are so perfectly smooth, the davincy could only dream of. This printer is about 2000€ so it has to be better, that’s clear, but the goal is to reach similar “smoothness” on parts walls on the davinci.

I think the weak rods, and especially the weak bed is the main reason the layers are not 100% perfectly equal. Also the brass bearings are not high end, so I have designed a stiffer bed with 16mm rods, and 6mm lasercutted steel bed. Also I will add a backlash free threaded rod, which will be held down on a back plate with two bearings, connected to the motor with a cutted alu coupling.

Also I plan to add an e3d v6 direct drive extruder with 10mm hardenend rods for x and y axis also with ball bearings, Driven by Gt2 belts

I will keep you up to date.

looks like you're going to beat me to it. I was planning on beefing up my Z axis this summer. I think I'm going to end up using a bed from a solidoodle though.
First parts arrived, i am going to install the e3d to the stock carryier for a first test. have to wait for the gt2 belts and laser cut bed parts.

quickly preassembled the bed. 6mm aluminium. it is bulletproof, no play at all! looking forward to first test prints [Image: IMG_20150731_123505.jpg][Image: IMG_20150731_123457.jpg]
Great looking mod. Can't wait to see the outcome.
I'm definitely curious about the bed. One thing I hate the most is the bed on my machine and have been wanting to replace it with something better.
