Hey folks, here is a list of some of the essential H-1 mods. I'll keep this list updated but please feel free to discuss or make suggestions. I'd like to create a topic for each of these with the relevant info, files, etc and then link these to the topics. If anyone wants to take a crack at these topics, go wild!
timing belt idlers "skate bearing upgrade" with printed bearing bushings
hot bed - nearly essential for printing ABS
hot end fan (essential if you print with PLA) with printed fan bracket
I would make the heated bed essential. You can't print any object with ABS larger then 2"x2" without it warping. I would move the X and Y timing belt to 'Almost essential' because the machine will work just fine without them, would I not use them? Maybe, but most likely not.
Essentials I would add: * Modifying H-1 3 Axis controller board * knurled rollers for extruder feeder
For 'almost essentials' I would add: * glass print bed (topper) * blue tape/kapton tape to cover print bed
Thanks Michael. I'll swap the 2 items. I did not include the modify board because that is in the H-1 Electronics Manual as essential to do. The knurled rollers are now knurled (I'll double check and verify that though).
