VULCAN 400 CARTESIAN 3D PRINTER: XY DRAG CHAIN AND EXTRUDER INSTALLED

Just finished installing the cable drag chain for the x and y axis and the extruder system on the gantry platform. Fixing on the drag chain required some custom aluminium brackets to be made. These were made roughly, but came out really good. It looks really neat with the drag chains. The z axis drag chain will added once i have the time. The same aluminium extruder system mounting plate used from the Shapeoko 3d printer build was used. Mounting it was easy just a few new holes drilled that matched the gantry mounting plate. Its getting more exciting seeing the build coming together at last. Super busy with engineering studies so progress will be slow. I am designing a heat bed using borosilicate glass which you can in the photos, copper wire and kapton tape. That heat build plate log will be put later. Till next time
