Sorry for a quite a log break for my blog as I was busy with my studies and project you guys can follow my project here:
My current project link
I had a chance to take a project in my school where I will be implementing my idea in Indonesia . Please take a look as it may give us a solution in singapore for urban farming to find out more please click on the link above.
I'm writing a post today, to document my experiment that I gonna conduct for my project, I have a lead screw to do an actuator that I'm gonna use it for my project above. I can't find lead nut with mounting and it's quite expensive and will take a long time to get in my hand.
The information about the lead screw:
M8 Lead screw 50cm long
I will be using cubicon as I want it to be fast and reliable. The material filament is ABS
So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna design a mounting lead nut by putting my nut during the printing it self. That's why I said that this is a experiment to find whether when I add foreign material can I get a rigid structure
And I gonna add my M8 screw when my printing reach here.
You guys may ask why not you print M8 thread using Cubicon . It will a long time to print and the resolution of printer is not good that M8 thread will be not M8. By doing this I think that I may reduce some time. Tommorrow , I will be executing my design and will do a post later.
So for now I think this post will give you the idea
