[Sintron] Ultimate 3D Printer Full Complete Kit for DIY Reprap Prusa i3 + RAMPS 1.4, MK8 Extruder, MK3 Heatbed, and LCD Controller
The operating principle of 3D printer is to establish a 3D model by your computer, and use slicing software system to do the slicing work for the 3D model then save to the SD card for ready to print. Made of high quality acrylic material + Steel rod (threaded & smooth), this 3D printer has a simple structure, light and portable, beautiful and trendy.
This kit include all the parts you need for building Reprap prusa i3 3D printer. you might be wondering what are the difference between ours and others.
the main difference would be :
(1) we don’t adapt wade extruder, we upgrade the J-head to all metal MK8 extruder.
If you use wade extruder etc, every time when you change the filament, you have to take them apart and calibrate it all again. it takes hours sometimes, so I would suggest you to use long distance extruder as below. it takes you only within 1 minute to change the filament. (how long will we change the filament? for normal use, you would change it at least 3~5 times per month. I believe you don’t want to spend hours every time)
(2) We offer LCD 2004 controller with SD card design support totally off-line print, no computer needed while printing. then you don’t have to spare one computer for your 3D printer use only. The default is LCD 2004 controller, if you would like to upgrade to LCD 12864, please inform us in advance. we offer this for free now.
(3) We use the latest MK3 Heatbed 3mm Aluminium PCB Board, dual power supply, operate at 12V or 24V. Heated bed keeps a certain temperature to prevent warping, and cooling fan speeds up solidification of the extruded filament. this would reduct your calibration time a lot!
(4) We use well-designed standard MK8 extruder, high quality stepper motor and direct drive extrusion wheel, more accurate, quick heating and fluent injection, we have made necessary design to prevent "jammed" problem. printing speed up to 100mm/s.
Actually we have own this products for over one year, but we just started to sell it now. because we hope to went through all the details, and make sure all the components we selected are really useful, so customer can save time on worrying if it’s the hardware problem and focus on project only.
Therefore, if you meet any problems (I am sure you will meet dozens of problems and questions during the building process, and it’s normal), you can always contact us for technical support, because almost all the problems you will meet, we already met before, you are not just buying this product, you also get our experienced support for you. building a 3D printer is not an easy job, so if there’s some one you can ask, you will save a lot of time.
We have pre-installed the 3D printer firmware for you, so even you know nothing about firmware, you can still get it working. error range would be from 0.1~0.5mm (but in order to be more precise, some knowledge about the firmware is recommended)

(3) A4988 StepStick Compatible Stepper Motor Driver Module
A4988 is a complete microstepping motor driver with built-in translator for easy operation. This product is available in full, half, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 step modes operate bipolar stepper motors, output drive capacity of up to 35 V and ± 2 A. A4988 includes a fixed off-time current regulator, the regulator in slow or mixed decay modes. A4988 converter is the key to the easy implementation. As long as the "step" input inputting one pulse drives the motor one microstep. There are no phase sequence tables, high frequency control lines, or complex interfaces to program. A4988 interface is very suitable for complex microprocessor is unavailable or is overburdened.
In the micro-step operation, A4988 chopping control inside automatically selects the current decay mode (Slow or Mixed). In mixed decay mode, the device is initially set to a fixed downtime in some fast decay, then the rest of the slow decay downtime. Mixed decay current control scheme results in reduced audible motor noise, increased step accuracy, and reduced power consumption. Internal synchronous rectification control circuitry is provided to improve the pulse-width modulation (PWM) operation power consumption. Internal circuit protection includes: thermal shutdown with hysteresis, undervoltage lockout (UVLO), and crossover-current protection. Special power sequencing.
