Lead Screw vs Belts

The WorkHorse is a large customizable 3d printer platform for designers, builders, and makers. The XYZ Lead Screw motion system is an open-source design that can be adapted to specific materials and applications. In most cases, belt driven 3d printers are better suited compared to lead screw. But this isn’t most cases and the lead screw we selected to drive the WorkHorse isn’t your standard lead screw. We’ve tried a range of different styles of lead screw and had mixed results. We settled with a Igus high helix thread pitch with a 50mm lead.

If you’re looking for an advanced project like building a large 3d printer, the WorkHorse is an open-source design that you can customize for a specific application or project.

The fixed bedmoving gantry is intended to make the 3d printer more scalable as the bed and z-axis mechanism becomes heavier.

  • Fixed Bed / Moving Gantry
  • X and Y-Axis Lead Screw
3D Printing at RepRap Festival

While most 3d printers use belt driven motion in the x and y axis to increase print speed but loses quality when more weight is applied to the gantry or carriage. The lead screw used on the Workhorse has a high helix pitch with multiple threads to allow increased print speeds while maintaining the quality provided from lead screw and ball screw motion. The system is particularly useful in applications that add more weight to the gantry or carriage. Materials such as clay, chocolate, plastic pellet extrusion or other foods can increase weight that is moved around which results decreased quality or print speeds. Workhorse Printer’s are available to purchase in Machined Component Kit, Hardware Kit or Complete Kit.

    Tronxy x5s ohne Z Achsenträger

    Der Drucker wurde sehr schnell geliefert.
    Beim Zusammenbau habe ich bemerkt, dass die 2 Aufnahmeplatten der Z-Achse (welche das Druckbett aufnehmen) nicht vorhanden waren. Dieses habe ich beanstandet und gefragt, ob man mir einen neuen Drucker zusendet. Nach einigen Emails wurde dann beim Hersteller die beiden schwarzen Platten für mich bestellt. In der Zwischenzeit habe ich mir aus Bastelholz eigene gebaut und konnte so den Drucker ausprobieren. Präzision war natürlich nicht perfekt.

    Ich habe festgestellt das Druckbett sollte mit einem Spiegel versehen werden, damit es gerade ist.

    Auch sind die Gewindestangen der Z Achse nicht 100% gerade bei mir. Ich habe die Aufnahme oben nun unbefestigt gelassen. Die Befestigungsschrauben führen nun die Z Achse oben in der Nut.

    Die Bestellung für die Trägerplatten hat ca. 1.5 Monate gedauert. Am 02/19/19 habe ich die Information zum Versand bekommen. Am 02/28/2019 wurden sie geliefert. Dafür noch einmal vielen Dank.

    Es ist äußerst schwierig diese Ersatzteile im Nachhinein zu bekommen. Ich empfehle allen die Teile genau zu kontrollieren und den Drucker lieber beim Fehlbestand zurückzusenden.
    Das ist im Enddefekt schneller.

    Ich bin mit dem Drucker zufrieden und erhoffe mir nun mehr Erfahrung zu sammeln. Yes (0)

    Tronxy S5X ...4 Sterne von 5

    Ich habe ca. 6 std. fur den kompletten zusammenbau gebraucht.
    Ohne vor wissen wäre dieses auf keinen Fall möglich da die Baueinleitung stark verbesserungswürdig ist.

    Schrauben waren vermischt in beuteln so das man erst mal wieder alles sortieren musste weil man

    Die Kabelb vom Heizbett und Extruder sind etwas unter dimensioniert und werden ziemlich heiss. .also nicht wundern.

    Alle Kabelkontakte sollten mindestens verzinnt werden (eigenarbeit)
    Das Druckbett an sich ist etwas dünn (Aluminium Druckbett sollte man auf 5 mm erweitern (stärke)

    Nichts desto trotz ist der Drucker mit seinem Bauraum von 330x330x400 und dem angebotenem Preis momentan unschlagbar
    Allererster Druckversuch ist im foto zu sehen.Yes (2)

    Gute Qualität und Funktion

    Alles war gut verpackt und ziemlich qualitativ verarbeitet! Es kostete mich 2 Nachmittage den Drucker zusammenzubauen, aber er funktionierte auf Anhieb! Bei so einem großen Bett bietet sich an, einen Auto bed leveling Sensor einzubauen. Ich empfehle Piezo20, weil man nicht viel ändern muß und sogar die original Steuerplatine verwenden kann. Was man machen muß, ist die Marlin Firmware zu updaten, aber das war nicht das Thema, es ist mein zweiter 3D Drucker :-)

    Bei Thingiverse findet man auch einige Verbesserungen, wo man sich die entsprechenden Teile selbst drucken kann.

    Ich bin mit dem Drucker sehr zufrieden!

    nice printer for tinkering

    If you are a tinkerer and want a base for your own modifications, go ahead and get this printer. If you want a hassle-free printer to just print, there may be better choices.

    The kit was complete, and the instructions are useable, assembly took two evenings.

    Printing quality out of the box was very nice.

    I received an updated version of the X5S in February 2018, where some of the well-known shortcomings have been fixed, particularly the heated bed is now a 12V version, the belt routing is much better, and some of the acrylic parts have been exchanged for metal.

    The printer came with a sheet of acrylic to attach the build mat. This is rather flimsy and warped terribly when heated. You may want to replace it with a sheet of glass.

    Due to the now working heated bed, the cabling is too thin and gets VERY hot.

    Quality control is still an issue:

    My heated bed was missing a solder joint so only 2/3 warmed up.

    The threads in the heater block were damaged, so the hotend leaked terribly. 9Yes (0)


    Very easy to build with full tools supplied. Nicely cut aluminum, no nasty sharp swarf or bad threads. All my roller assemblies and power supply was pre assembled also all the protective paper was removed from the acrylic parts. All problems from previous models are gone!! Double Z bed makes for a very stable and precise surface, no leveling the bed then after homing having to re-level. This printer is ROCK solid. This is my first 3d printer and after enjoying the build, the results are amazing. I can't stop watching it!!! I would like to film it in case I miss something!! It prints straight out of the box!!
    I honestly cannot think of any cons.. well only silly ones like, it can't change it's own filament and why can't it read my mind...

3D Printer Threads and Thread Inserts for Plastics

At Formlabs, we design various functional parts for printing on our stereolithography (SLA) 3D printers such as the Form 3. These parts include prototypes used for our own R&D , clamps and fasteners to be used on our production lines, models for design verification before casting the final product in the appropriate material, such as nylon.

Regardless of the application, we often need to connect 3D printed components with screws and threaded fasteners. As the catalog of versatile and reliable engineering polymers grows, the differences between "imitation" prototypes and functional prototypes diminish.

This article is a guide to threading and threading 3D parts with a 3D printer. There are many ways to connect multiple 3D printed parts together, but if you need the ability to repeatedly connect and disconnect components and secure mechanical fastening, there is no real substitute for metal screws.

Do you like to see everything with your own eyes? Watch a video about 3D printing threaded connections and threaded inserts for 3D plastic parts.

White Paper

Download our white paper on stereolithography to find out how SLA printing works, why thousands of professionals use it today, and how this 3D printing technology can be useful in your work.

Download white paper

Let's take a look at some of the threading options for 3D parts we've put together based on years of Formlabs experience and your suggestions. We've ranked these options, starting with the one we think is the best, with the pros and cons of each option for different use cases.

Experience Formlabs print quality first hand. We will send a free 3D printing sample directly to your office.

Benefits: Strongly connects 3D printed parts without the use of glue. The metal threads are durable and reusable.

Disadvantages: Inserts may loosen with increasing temperature.

3D print a sleeve blank with a depth and diameter that matches the insert specifications. Rinse with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) and allow to dry without final polymerization. Insert the insert into the sleeve with a screwdriver and use the screw to secure it completely into the plastic. Then finish curing the part to reduce the creep effect and fix the insert in the plastic even better. Performing this step last reduces the chance that the insert will break the sleeve when screwed in.

Benefits: Connects 3D printed parts very securely. The metal threads are durable and reusable.

Cons: Requires glue (don't try to use a soldering iron!).

Threaded inserts with heat setting are designed for installation in thermoplastics using a soldering iron with a soldering tip. They can be used in acrylic models and Fused Deposition Models (FDM), but cannot be used with in SLA photopolymer parts, which bend but do not melt when heated.

Check out our detailed guide comparing FDM vs. SLA 3D printers to see how they differ in terms of print quality, materials, application, workflow, speed, cost, and more.

However, the notches and ridges on the heat set inserts make them a very effective thread fastener if you bond them with a two part epoxy or cyanoacrylate adhesive. Determine the bushing size by the largest diameter of the insert and apply some adhesive before installation. For best results, the part must be completely dry and cured.

Benefits: Nuts are easy to match to any required screw size.

Drawbacks: Side nut slots can eliminate the need for glue, but can make it harder to support the model during printing.

Adding a hexagon socket to the nut press-fit end creates a reusable strong metal-to-metal connection. To increase the twisting force, you can choose a square nut. This nut can also be plastic or have blocking elements. If necessary, a drop of cyanoacrylate glue will help hold the nut in place, but if the design includes a side socket, there is no need for glue. Use a 0.1 mm offset around the press-in nut and clearance around the screw itself.

Benefits: Prototyping uses the same metal products as mass-produced injection molded parts. Sleeve blanks made from Tough (and Durable) polymer are unlikely to crack if you follow the screw manufacturer's sleeve design guidelines.

Disadvantages: The screws will hold tight, but the threads will not be as resistant to repeated use as metal threads. Standard resins can be used, but the bushing is more likely to crack.

Follow manufacturer's recommendations for core sizes and print with high impact engineering resins (such as our Tough Resin and Durable Resin). Before using the screws, complete the final curing. If you are prototyping an injection molded part that will use tapping or tapping screws in its final assembly, this is a good option for testing.

Benefits: No need to buy special plastic screws.

Disadvantages: The screws will hold tight, but the threads will not be as resistant to repeated use as metal threads.

We have tested screws in our Tough Resin product and found that their use is identical to that of threading screws designed for plastics. The size of the hole diameter of the threaded bushing must be in the range between the main (threaded) diameter of the screw and the inner diameter. The screw shown is a #8 screw in a 0.16" diameter hole.

Benefits: Can be used for prototyping large and custom threaded designs.

Disadvantages: Not a durable or reusable fastening solution, especially for smaller thread sizes.

3D printed threads from standard resins are better than Tough Resins because they are much harder. 3D printed threads remain relatively brittle, depending on the size of the thread, and are not recommended if the fastening system is to be used continuously and repeatedly.

Thread sizes ¼-20 or larger are generally functional without the need for post-processing. For smaller screws, the threads must be modified to provide better fastening. For example, printing a round thread profile (on a screw and a nut) and using a 0.
