Mounting wedges - DE200/DU structure

Creation's quality: 0.0/5 (0 votes)
Evaluation of members on the printability, utility, level of detail, etc.

3D model description

This is a set of shims, allowing structural defects to be corrected,

remarkable during a print like:

  • Twisted plate effect and print takeoff (warping)

  • Failure to respect the values and dimensions of an object

  • Non-verticality or horizontality of a print

  • Wooble

  • Resistance on one or more axes (X, Y and Z)

They have a 4-point goal:

  • An initial assembly of a DE200 in kit form, optimal, straight and stable

  • Precise structural adjustment of an already assembled DE200

  • A stable structure for safe transport

  • Durable fixing in a box or on a workbench to maintain stability and perfect parallelism, thus improving the quality of the prints.

Equipment required:

  • Tray size 400mm x 500mm x 20mm minimum

  • 8 screws M6 of 50mm (length to be adapted according to the thickness of your tray)

  • 8 M6 nuts with hexagonal heads

  • The screwdriver supplied with your DE200

  • Small special key to be printed (optional)

  • Assembly instructions in PDF

The drilling ribs for the tray are provided in the manual.

There are 2 tutorials online:

numbers elements to be printed:

  • left side wedge X1

  • right side shim X1

  • forward hold X1

  • back wedge X1

  • extension nuts X8

  • installation wrench X1

necessary supports for the chocks.

No support for wrench and nut extensions required.

RETURNS: (11 people)

Difficulty level: 1 = very easy >>> 5 = very difficult

  • Plate drilling: 3/5

  • Wedge prints: 1.5/5 (mainly related to the supports depending on the slicers used)

  • Prints of bolts and accessories: 1/5

Improvements noted:

  • 5 notice noise attenuation during operation

  • 7 note a significant improvement in prints

(2 with expert pack, 3 with original head, 1 with custom head, 3 not specified)

  • 6 notice the stability retained during transport

  • 5 have settled their DE200

  • 2 assembled its DE200 from A to Z using the shim method.

  • 6 use the shims to fix their DE200s to the workbench.

Problems noted:

  • 2 had a problem with the print of the rear hold (supports)

( problem solved, wrong orientation on the tray, slicer management)

  • 1 finds that the clamping tool rubs on the wedge when clamping

(indeed, it depends on how the drilling is done with a handheld device for example, but it is not an essential element).

  • 1 finds the colors lame... (no comments... you choose the color...)

  • 1 person notices that the screw adapters are too long in height. (A shorter version will be available soon)

  • 1 has an assembly problem with an extruder type MK8 (indeed, the shims have been designed for a machine equipped with official Dagoma parts, however, a compatible version can be considered).

Your opinion is important, do not hesitate to leave me a comment with your feelings.

Thanks to you.

UPDATE November 2018: Due to a feedback regarding a DE200 with original extruder, the current wedge is hindering the movement of the lever for inserting/removing the filament.

For those who are in this case, I put online a version of the AR V2 Extru Orig shim. This one will allow you to take advantage of the shims and leave free the actions on the extruder lever. (Thanks to Guillaume for this return!)

Update February 2019: Addition of a V3 rear shim for DE200 bi-color (double extruder+) material reduction, redesigned design, easier access to the wrench.

Remixing of nut extensions (shorter)

Remixing of the forward hold (same improvements as the aft hold)

Adaptable for Disco Ultimate, with the difference that the use of side shims are no longer necessary (improved side bases on DU) only the front and rear shims.
