Additional Equipment / Zusätzliches Equipment

Here is a list of commonly used equipment. If you think, something is missing, let me know. There are no affiliate links, I attempted to avoid linking to a dedicated product but the product class.

Air Assist Pumps / Compressor / Pumpen
Requirement: about 60L/min
Hailea ACO-318 https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00BNSQ16K
Aquaforte V-60 https://www.amazon.de/dp/B006SYHCI0/
Silicon hose https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B000H6SRMU/
Air Assist Nozzles / Düsen
Facebook Group Files Section: https://www.facebook.com/groups/538557960530958/files
Thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/search?q=sculpfun&page=1&type=things&sort=relevant
Brass Nozzle (Messingdüse) from Jakub: https://www.etsy.com/de/listing/952903198/ultimate-air-assist-brass-nozzle-for
Tobias Vollmer: https://www.vollmer-tobias.de/air-assist-sculpfun-s9/
V-Slot-Wheels / Laufrollen
Standard “open builds” vslot wheels
Hole diameter: 5 mm, Thickness: 10,23 mm, Dimensions: 23,89 x 16 x 10,23 mm, 625zz bearing
Use polycarbonate ones if possible, they are more robust
Belts / Riemen
Type: GT2, 6mm
High quality are from Gates Powergrip
mostly no name brands: https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?SearchText=gt2+belt+6mm
T-Nuts / T-Nut-Muttern
M3 M4 M5 as you like (depends on your screws)
width should be 10x6mm to fit into 2020 aliminium profile
Limit Switches / Endschalter
I recommend fully assembled switches with debouncing circuitry already on board (like the one in the picture)
Drag chains / Schleppketten
I recommend 10x15mm minimum and with feature to open each element:
Fan / Lüfter
The laser head uses a standard 40x40x20mm fan (two-wire, no PWM/RPM). Be sure that it is 12V and has enough CFM.
Laser Shield Glas / Laserschutzglas
Requirement: blocks wavelength around 455nm (laser wavelength)
Plexiglas GS Orange 2C04 GT is absorbing the correct wavelength. It’s hard to post international links, better search for some local supplier.
Automatic Fire Extinguisher / Automatischer Feuerlöschball
Fire extinguisher ball: https://www.elidefire.fr/home
Protective glasses / Laserschutzbrille
Look out for certified glasses for a wavelength of 455nm and an optical density of OD6+. It’s hard to post international links, better search for some local supplier.
Honeycomb bed / Wabenmatte
Be aware that most of the honeycomb beds have a 2cm frame and this one is counted at the size measurement. So my bed that was advertised as 40x40cm bed has a usable size of 36x36cm.
Honeycomb pins / Wabennadeln
These pins are used to hold the workpiece down on the bed. Very convenient, especially if the workpiece is not straight flat. I received this file from somewhere, I can’t recover any author. Download (LightBurn file) I used 4 mm plywood to cut them out, but 3 mm should be fine as well or even better.
For the original Sculpfun honeycomb, I needed to adjust the size: Download (LightBurn file)
And here are some other pins, by Paul Grobler (official Sculpfun Facebook group): Download (LightBurn file)
Focus Screw Knobs / Adapter für Fokusschrauben
The focus screws are very tiny, that’s why I use these adaptors: Thingiverse Link
You can also use the laser to create such: Download (LightBurn file) (by Paul Grobler)
Focus Tool Holder / Halter für den Fokussierungs-Zylinder
This is a holder that can be produced with the laser itself. I included two versions that have been shared in the Sculpfun user group: Download (LightBurn file)
