    Yep, that is the goal! I did several designs for the "legs", some are for my current setup, some are for the final PCB Heater version. Also depends on the magnets to use.
    This one is final for now, it includes the stabilizer. Print bed is much more stable now, very slight ghosting on the Y axis. It is acceptable, the prints are very nice

    The latest (MK6) print head is better balanced, cooling is increased, LED Lights are properly positioned.
    This will be the version to publish.

    My OCD is calm now No more updates, except PCB Heater, in near future.

    Here are some more photos:

    Edit (OCD is never calm):

    Testing new stabilizers, rubber o-rings on the magnets:

    Much better stabilization by my first impression

    ROTFL perfectionism OCD good!

    i got the screen and LCD extender, but Im so friggin scared to even start! LOL

    Did you calc how much Z did you loose with the whole conversion, if anything?


    AND OH BTW! Care to try doing a "single" extruder Mk7 for the rest of mortals who don't wanna mess with dual extrusion for now?

    BTW Im curious about you doing an "as much large and fast as possible" print on this baby to see any possible artifacts/ringing occurrences and see what can we expect from the conversion

    YASQ (YetAnotherStupidQuestion )

    The stepdown converters are for the stepper fans??

    I'll start our own forum "Teardown" Cube3 thread but for now, I'm here!

    Wow nice! I see someone is already converting!
    Do not throw away anything, it will help you a lot! And do not unpin any connector yet.

    Step-downs are to get 12 and 5V from 24V (stepper fans, leds, cooling fan and turbines)
    Also you will need 2 mosfet boards, small ones, no need for powerful ones. We are very limited in space. One is used for print leds, the other is for print cooler turbines.

    Regarding a Z-height, I lost around 25mm.
    I'm sure I can re-design the head to MK7 single extruder version

    I'm tempted to try and leave the bed as is for now, im not planning to print ABS with this at the moment... I'm also a bit surprised at the path of the fan flow for the steppers, it's a bit weird. I wonder if they run too "overclocked" or it's just because they're hold by plastic that they need the airflow... but it looks like a too much restrictive path (and noisy, I guess).

    Well, heated bed was the must have option for me, I am printing a lot of abs, heated bed helps with other plastics too, you don't need thick brims to hold the print in place. I'm using glass and cheap PVP glue stick, works perfectly!

    Regarding the extruder steppers, dunno, left it as it was. I run them slightly overpowered, they can get quite hot, that's probably the reason. The printer is pretty noisy, mainly because of 3 always on fans, plus 2 turbines on, while printing.

    If U are going to be converting to Single hotend, Just use a V6 with an Titan and a Pancake at the top... U are Limited with Speed anyway...

    - - - - - - - - - -

    So U will gain in Print quality...the rails are original thk so No Problem there is highend stuff

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Im trying to Push the cube3 corexy Design past 300mm/s, but i have serious Motor Heat issues(the original ones Not being Made for auch beating)....
