Voron Trident 350 extremely slow build


Recommended Posts

Hi, as the title suggests, this is going to take a while. I don't have spare money laying around so a kit is out of the question. I'm going to source everything myself. This is actually something I like doing. 
So, the actual build state is as follows : I bought the extrusions (In Poland, great quality and price) and am now in the process of tapping and drilling.

Not very exciting I'm afraid, although I did design and print a few very simple jigs for drilling holes.

I have no experience in printing ABS, always having printed in PLA and PETG. I tried with an enclosure for my trusted Ender 3 but hated the smell and the results were below par.

So I decided to take advantage of the Voron PIF program, but since this is a slow build anyways I'll wait till the Stealthburner is officially the goto toolhead.
As soon as the screws arrive from Ali I'll start assembling the frame.

This is the best build experience. I did my Voron 0, in a similar manner, except ordered the frame. Learned so much about the need for accuracy in the build. Just enjoy

Tweak it around to get as square as you can. Since you're building a 350 monster, I think anything within 1mm will be good. As nero has pointed out: we're building fancy hot glue guns. They don't need to be perfect. I have my 250 Trident within I think about 0.3mm-0.4mm and it prints fantastic.
