Several parts need to be prepared and semi-assembled to improve the workflow.
01. Frame Assembly
Carefully assemble the frame as squareness is critical for smooth operation, take your time during the next steps.
02. Z-Axis motor assembly
The Z motor is responsible for the up and down movement of the gantry and consequent layer stacking.
03. y-axis motor & idler assemblies
The Y-axis motor and idler are critical for the smooth and fast movement of the bed.
04. y-axis carriage & bed assembly
In cartesian 3D printers, the bed is usually responsible for how slow a machine is. Not on the V-Minion 1.0, the small bed size attached to a mgh15H linear rail, makes it heavy-duty and ultra-fast.
05. x-axis assembly
Yhe x-axis is a cantilever system sturdy enought to break speed records.
06. Spool Holder assembly
The V-Minion is a compact machine, with all the convenience needed for 3D printing.
07. eva assembly
EVA is a 3D printing carriage platform revolving around accessibility - the goal is to give the power of choice to the users by enabling as many options for carriage hardware as possible.
08. electronics enclosure
All of the V-Minion electronics fit into the specially designed case. It has been designed to house the power supply, a Raspberry Pi, as well as your printer mainboard, all whilst providing cooling via a built-in 40mm fan.
