So I’m finally doing this…I’ve got a Chimera ordered along with some hardware to get things going.
I’ve still got to decide on exactly how to lay it out. Looking at the pics earlier in this thread I’m a little concerned that the bowden tubes will be at a sharp angle while printing something near the max of the Z axis. That layout also would involve more of a redesign of the frame.
I have been considering this idea(excuse the artwork) but it has its own drawbacks and takes up a lot of space:
This would in theory work w/no mods to the frame and extruders that bolt to the t-slots. It would also keep the bowden tube angle relatively constant throughout the whole Z travel.
I’m also trying to narrow down which extruders and x-carriage mount for the Chimera I want to use so I can start printing them…Has anyone else done a Chimera or similar on a Wilson 2 and want to share their idea/pics?
