Synchromesh Cable Kit (Prusa Mendel compatible)

$ 38.00


This a kit to upgrade your Prusa Mendel's (Mendels & other similar 3D printer) belts with the new Sychromesh cables system.

Includes 3 meters of synchromesh cable (3.81 pitch) and 2 matching pulleys (15 teeth) for stepper motors with 5mm shafts.

The synchromesh cable is manufactured by combining coating technology and wire-twisting technology.This provides the advantage of cables (possible 3D distribution) and the convenience of timing belts (easy mounting). This synchromesh cable employs the same gear-mesh type transmission as the timing belt.

Calculating Travel:

The cable is 3.81mm pitch and the wheel has 15 teeth = 15 * 3.81mm = 57.15mm per revolution.

For 200 step (full step) stepper motor = 57.15 / 200 = .28575mm / step or 3.4995 steps / mm
For 3200 step (1/16 micro steps) = 57.15 / 3200 = .017859375mm / micro step or 55.993 steps / mm
For 6400 step (1/32 micro steps) = 57.15 / 6400 = .0089296875 / micro step or 111.986 steps / mm
