WARNING FOR USERS IN COUNTRIES WHICH USE 120V MAINS
CAUTION: if your country uses 120V mains, please be aware that the Power Supply included in this kit contains a switch which allows it to operate at either 115V or 230V. By default, all units will ship with the switch positioned at 230V, so you will need to flip this switch before using the Power Supply.
What you need to source:
We're working to get there, but for now, the default configuration is not the same as a turn-key, complete kit. Some items will need to be sourced elsewhere.
- Power cord - you will need to source a power cord with a plug, to connect your machine to the wall. We don't supply them since we ship worldwide and different countries use different plug types.
Raspberry Pi or equivalent to run klipper
- Extra printed parts (LAN/IEC adapter, back-spine/nut/colar for cable routing on the electronics panel) - these cable management parts are non-essential and can be printed later.
- IEC/Lan Plug - these are optional and need to be user sourced.
- Cable crimping - you may need a crimping tool to assemble your electronics. Learn more about cable crimping here.
- Optional Electronics panel and enclosing panels - these are meant to be sourced locally by the user, DXF files with size, shape and hole patterns for the panels are provided for this purpose. Using 4mm thick polycarbonate sheets is suggested (CAUTION: thickness above 4mm is not advised as it will interfere with the XY motors).
- Fasteners to mount electronics to back panel (8 generic nylon spacers are included for this purpose, though)
- Depending on machine size and where you want to install the controller board, extension cables may be needed for the following components: BLTouch, SuperPinda, hotend heater and thermistor, limit switches - these components ship with short cables, and at the moment we do not stock extensions for them. We recommend sourcing the following cables:
To extend the cabling of your bltouch:
1x 22AWG Cable 5 Conductors 1500mm
To connect PSU, SSR and board:
3x 16AWG Cable 2 Conductors 500mm
