Practical 3D Printing Series – Basement Drain for Furnace

As in this episode we will be launching a new playlist titled “Practical 3D Printing Series” where we solve real problems with 3D printed solutions. The focus of this series will focus more toward developing the solution rather than how to 3D print something. In each episode we will explore a problem and how 3D can help us solve it. While most of the projects will be home or “honey do” based, the idea is to also show how the same principle could be employed in a small business setting using a 3D printer to solve commercial problems.

In this video we will design, print and install a drain cover for a furnace into a basement sump drain. While not the most exciting project, it does cover many practical aspects of design (we will use TinkerCad) to solve a problem with a 3D printer and that is goal of this series. So grab a cup of coffee and check out this video, then head over to either Thingiverse or TinkerCad and get your own version as I bet many of you have the same problem I did!

As in this episode we will be discussing a solution to a rather common issue with the XYZprinting Da Vinci 3D Printers. The problem is you want to print a circle but get an oval instead, what do you do? Well in the video if your getting an oval or egg shaped circle then your printer is likely out of alignment. Don’t worry this isn’t major thing, however you will need a flat (regular ) screwdriver and a #10 torque driver to fix this. So take a deep breath, grab a coffee and watch as we show how to fix this error as its simpler than you think. Just take your time and be careful (as this is a machine and unexpected movements are possible).

Also recommend doing this with the power turned off and your risk as remember safety first!

T-Connector for Water Return on eBay Chinese K40 Laser

This is a T-Connector for an eBay Chinese K40 Laser cutter and engraver.  Designed with a ~7mm OD an and a ~3mm ID.  The idea is this will be used with a small pressure sensor to detect the flow of water on the exist side of the tube.  My suggestion would be to connect the outbound supply to the straight inlet and the pressure sensor to the opposite side while the “T” side is used for the exit flow back to the bucket.  This way, there is a greater amount of “pressure” applied to the sensor ensuring it is properly tripped as the pump (at least the one which came with the unit) does not provide that much pressure.

Water Return for eBay Chinese K40 Laser

This is ~ 7mm OD with a ~3mm ID water return line with hose barb designed to a fixed to the top of five gallon bucket for the water return of a K40 style eBay/Chinese Laser cutter & engraver.  The idea is to provide a little back pressure to trigger a small pressure sensor to indicate water flow exiting the tube rather positive pressure enter it because if the becomes plugged, the inlet would show pressure activating the switch yet no water would be flowing and the tube could be damaged.
