PROFILER and 3D-Printer ?

Opbouw en gebruik van de freesmachine

Postby woldig » Sun Dec 29, 2013 12:00 am

Hallo forumleden!

Mei name is Wolf. I am a model ship builder from Germany. I use my original Profiler for a long time.

Recent developments have led to the 3D printer. Such a printer would simplify the work considerably for the model builder.

So my question to you: Is there any information in the Dutch forum how to modify the Profiler to a 3D printer?

For your assistance, I thank you in advance!

Regards, woldig

PS: Sorry that I write in English, my Dutch is niserabel and the Google Translator incomprehensible to me, alas!

Which profiler do you have and which controller?

you will need an extruder head for your profiler.
And to be honest another controller like the RAMPS 1.4. That is what i am currently using with my Profiler.

Hi RoelandK!

I have the very first Profiler still in the original only the H-assembly was exchanged.

Before I have asked, I did some research and I came up, for example, with the RepRap concept. So I wonder if other people have different experiences.

I think you better buy a 3D printer kit...
Like the RepRap, Makerbot,...
There are many plans available...


But it may be possible if you use another controller and buy a heated bed and extruder...

Hi Woldig
I allready wrote a message in the german Forum...

Maybe that could help for other builders as well:

Hello Lukacs!

Thank you for your response. A decision I have not yet made. But when I think that the original Profiler has cost 1,6k, then maybe I should not compromise for the 3D printer. I have only to convince my government.
