My Version of an Artemis Whip Strain Relief

Post by Bones056 » Thu Aug 30, 2018 11:48 am

Hello All Artemis SE300 Ver. 1.1 with FSR's Owners

Not really wanting to screw around with the whip to do the fix that is suggested at this link:

viewtopic.php?f=115&t=12546

I figured I would try a few different things on my own to keep the Red & Black wires from pulling out of it's connector every week or so. This was becoming an issue for me lately as I've been doing some long prints (24 to 48 hours). After a few trials and errors. I came up with this model. It lets me keep the whip as I got it and as added benefit, as hard as this might sound... makes the printer ever more quitter! With my machine.. on long arm moves I was getting a pillow chatter that not even the oil suggested by SEEMECNC was helping. I'm thinking now that it wasn't a pillow chatter after all! See link for oil:

So if you decide to "try this model at your own risk" you will need to take a 13/64 drill to clean out the holes on the bottom so that the printed part will sit flush on the top of the circuit board. Again this is for early Artemis's SE300 Ver. 1.1 that have FSR's for calibration. When installing the cable tie. You do not need to crank on it. Use just enough pressure like in the pictures. To much pressure might warp the board. I have been using this for the last month and have not touched those power cables since I installed this part. So with that I'm letting it loose.. Have fun....

I printed this using the PLA Fine Cura Profile with No Supports.

Update..

After talking to Part Daddy about my Artemis with FSR's... He was kind enough to send me for a fair price, a new base section to swap out my FSR setup for a solid base so I can use the HotEnd Probe on the SE300. This was an easy exchange and required me to make a change to my Whip Strain Relief part I made last year. The original part has work wonderfully with no more issues with the Red & Black power wires. I could also use my original whip which didn't require any fiddling with. Major plus!

As the new setup would get height data from the HotEnd verse the FSR's. I was worried that the Whip Part would give bad readings. I decided to remove the larger piece and go with the smaller one and give it a try. To my surprise the before and after tests showed very little deviation in the probe numbers. So I went with the smaller part only and also put the part on my Rostock Max 3.2 Upgraded machine. Worked like a champ! So I'm attaching the Part for anyone to print if they have the old Whip and didn't do the update to secure the whip to the HotEnd Probe at this link:

Enjoy!!
