- August 7, 2016 at 11:04 pm #15779
I’m not from an English speaking country, so please bear with me, I will try my best to make me understand.
I’m considering making the 525 25,4mm update, but before starting printing I like to analyze by CAD what I’m about to print. That also gives me a very good idea of how everything is assembled.
So while doing this, one thing felt weird, there is a difference between corner tube centers and middle tube centers.
Here the distance between centers is of 29.4mm
There are some tolerances, 25,8mm tubes can fit, so a 0,4mm offset.
Everything tight down theoretically will give a center-center distance of 29mm
But here the distance between centers if of 27,3mm
What am I missing?August 8, 2016 at 1:35 am #15785
I think I got it, it’s for adjusting the tension between X and Y.
Correct me if wrong.
EDIT: Uoppss.. And did the cad middle assembly wrong. It’s actually 27.5mm
So between 29 and 27.5 it’s just 1.5mm. Yup, don’t mind this thread… pretty sure it’s for the tension.
PS: I’m impressed by this new middle and the way the threaded rod fits now. Well done RyanAugust 8, 2016 at 5:13 pm #15814
F&ck, Looks like I have some work to do.
Thank you for finding that, the equations did not carry over in solidworks…August 8, 2016 at 6:09 pm #15816
New files are up!August 8, 2016 at 9:38 pm #15823
Could you please tell what files are updated? There is no records in changelog.August 8, 2016 at 9:53 pm #15824
The F and J corner assemblies have a change log for the corner pieces that have been labeled with a “2” The locks should be the same but I revved them anyway to be safe. For most people this is not a big deal, not worth reprinting your parts.August 9, 2016 at 2:50 am #15829
Glad to help. Indeed, don’t think that is a big deal also.
