My latest winder in progress. I made this winder with 3d printed parts that I designed and printed (with exception of the display enclosure and the carriage bearing clips that I did not design).
The winder can be run using 3d printer hosting software on a computer that sends gcode to the winder or by copying gcode to a SD memory card and running the winder using the Full Graphic Smart Controller.
The left side or main coil winder spindle assembly is mounted in a fixed position to the winder base.
The right side or secondary coil winder spindle assembly is movable and slides in a routed groove in the winder base. The spindle assembly is locked into position by tightening a single bolt.
On the right side of the image you can see the upper carriage
assembly and carriage base.
On the left rear side of the image you can see the secondary carriage rod support.
The main carriage motor, and guide rods support right side of the image you can see the upper carriage assembly and carriage base.
The underside of winder base showing rubber feet with printer risers and carriage guide.
The winder electronics control and motor driver board has the following components:
24 volt power supply (motors)
12 volt power adapter (for control electronics)
Arduino MEGA 2560 R3 (Clone) microcontroller board
Full Graphic Smart Controller display. (RepRap Clone)
Ramps 1.4 board (RepRap Clone).
THB6064 Stepper Motor Drivers
(Drivers Kits from from massmind.org - Only 2 of 3 needed for winder)
Custom made adapter boards for ramps board to motor driver ribbon cable connections.
