Two years after the design of the MicroCube, I finally found the time to do a redesign of the original version.

MicroCube CXY now uses the core xy setup and has a more stable z axis driven by a Nema 14. The x carriage was also re-designed for integrated part cooling fan and compact setup.

More detailed view of the square rod belt driven direct drive slider. Easy to assemble by just pressing the parts into the rod ends. Makes it easy to use nearly the whole rod length. Scaling is really easy this way, also on very long rods.

So after 7 failed attempts at getting my Simple Pro to print Via 7 different versions of Cura, I decided to try Repetier-Host. And Voila! It now prints via USB. Looks like I am learning a new software for 3D printing. Will keep using Cura on my custom large format, and my 4 Di3's

Any clue why that happened?

I have spent a good chunk of the last 2 years tinkering and designing CoreXY 3D printers. I’m really proud to share my current printer, The BareXY, and bring you all along for some of the changes I’m planning on making in Version 2.

Here are some clips of the BareXY in action (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C4V1vb3aKCk)

The BareXY is a completely open source CoreXY 3D printer. I have been running with the current design for over 6 months with great success and have distributed multiple kits. My design aims to achieve the best print quality obtainable with an FDM printer and do this at the lowest price. I’ve utilized the CoreXY motion system for it’s reduced moving mass, streamlined the design to reduce cost and complexity, and used authentic core components (E3D hotend, Bondtech extruder, Etc.).

I am really excited about the performance of my current design and to share the development of V2. I am more than happy to answer any questions! More to come soon.

Check out http://Bare3d.us (https://www.bare3d.us/) or follow the Bare3D FB page (https://www.facebook.com/Bare3D/) for more information and updates on my builds.

I think I'm having trouble with my Ender3 (I've had it for less than a week) ... Started a large print when I noticed that my wheels are extruding a whiteish gunk... (see pic from below the print bed) are my wheels too tight? Any ideas?

I really wish there was a 32bit controller board, small size, with 4 TMC2660 stepper drivers for under $100

This is a vastly underserved market. A few years ago I started on a similar design but never finished it. Near Drop in replacements for lower cost printers with minimal required features.

Hello all! I am new to this forum as well as 3D printing. Started with a Monoprice Select Mini and moved on to a Creality CR-10S. My problem that I'm having is in using Cura 3.5.1 I can't seem to get the layer view to work correctly (might be me) Anyway I am attaching a screen shot and hope some of you guys and gals with more experience can help me here.
The main reason I settled on version 3.5.1 is because it works with Octoprint.
Thanks!
