Summary

I started a video series in which I modify an Ender 3 pro in an unusual way. I started with making it foldablewith the use of threaded rods and bearings. I had to find another location for the power supply and display in order to do this.

Print Settings

Printer: Creality Ender 3 pro
Rafts: No
Supports: No
Resolution: 0.2
Infill: 30%
Filament: Nylon CF

Notes:

I have used Nylon with carbon fiber because of the aesthetics and its strength. PETG, ABS and regular Nylon should work as well, but I recon PLA would be too fragile.

Mounting instructions

The document at the bottom of the page can be found in the zip download as well. However, some things need to be mentioned:

  • The included bill of materials (BOM) contains the parts for the whole mod, including the power supply mod and display mod.
  • The bearing holders need to be warmed up before pressing in the bearings otherwise it can crack, like mine did in the video. I just placed it on the stove for a couple of minutes.
  • Use superglue to glue the bearings in the holders, otherwise they will come loose.
  • Use M10 spring washers to lock everything.
  • Instead of using 4 M8×20 bolts, you can use 30-32mm long threads to lock the part see this short clip

It is an experimental mod so it’s possible that things don’t work well over time and things can change. Keep this in mind and don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!
