Just a little project I've been working on. Still really need to give it a name, any ideas?

So.. I've already done a few upgrades to my CR10s but thought wouldn't it be good to turn it into a Prusa :-)

It will be known as the Creality Prusa  .. :-)

The upgrades I've already done are..
Converted it to a 24v system (PSU, Heated bed and element heater)
Changed the board to a MKS Gen L
Installed some TMC2130 Drivers

Infact you can see everything here..

THIS IS NOT THE FINISHED PRINTER... JUST AS IT CURRENLY IS.. . this is a build log after all :-)



BUT.. now I'm up for a new challenge. I would love to turn my CR10s into a Prusa.. well as close to it as possible.

I'm going to order all the bits today but in short this 'should' do everything the Prusa does except for the XYZ calibration. It will be using the Einsy Rambo board with endless stops, filament sensor, Pinda V2 prob, spring steel bed etc.. It will run on modified Prusa software and have the direct drive full metal extruder. :-)

More details will be added soon.. including a shopping list of where I bought all the items.. wish me luck !   Any questions or comments please post below.
