Can someone please explain me how he's making a coil winding machine from a 3D printer?

Is it just an attachment to the 3D printer (what part of it?) with a wire feed tube and a metal roller? How would the design of this look?

Also, how is he using the 3D printer exactly? He's not actually printing the wire it looks like. I am very unfamiliar how 3D printers work, so if anyone can explain that would be very helpful.

Also, he said he's documenting his work on his website page here, but I don't see it. Can any anons point out where it is?

Probably a FDM style printer, which is fed plastic from a coil, melted, and deposited. What that guy looks like he's doing is feeding in a coil of wire, not melting it, and placing it on some double stick tape
>>
Are you mentally retarded or what? I'm not gonna explain anything to you, how about you go ahead and google how a 3d printer works by yourself.

He is just a master of calibration. Using the perfect heat (much lower than actual 3D printing) the perfect height (balancing the threshold between
bending the metal and curving it) you could do this with enameled wire of the perfect gauge for your hotend

So he's making a cnc Mig Gun without the welding?

These printers take a spool of filament(like wire, but plastic instead) and melt it down through an extruder. Think of a glue gun.


The Head moves in X,Y,Z(height in relation to table) to direct where to put the melted plastic.

So this is just very very basic CNC code feeding metal wire instead of melted plastic goo.

Why should heat be necessary at all?
From the photo it looks like some sort of spring loaded roller pressing the wire into a sheet of pressure sensitive adhesive.
>>
>>1423111
retard, he's not suing any heat

heat could be useful if you want to seal it in place
but a roller and pressure sensitive,fast acting adhesive would work swell
>>
>>1423166
>pressure sensitive,fast acting adhesive would work swell
he literally uses painters tape
>>
>>1423090
rude
>>
>>1423120
Where is the spool being hanged from and is he still melting it? I don't understand why he would need to melt it.

Some magnet wire is coated with plastic on top of the enamel for easy mess free potting, just pop the finished coil in the oven and it fuses together. He could be using heat so the coil fuses as it winds.
>>
>>1423172
pressure sensitive adhesive, or PSA is industry speak for literally tape.
>>
>>1423189
So he just has wiring running through the nozzle that heats it not too much and then uses his attachment to guide it to the adhesive and press the wire onto it which is easier done because enamel is heated?

he's not heating anything you absolute retard, did you even watch the video?
>>
>>1423228
but anon said he is, can you just turn off heating option on 3d printer?
>>
hes heating the wire, but is he also uysing a heated bed?
>>
>>1423311
where is heating the wire?
>>
>>1423296
what the fuck are you talking about "heating option" are you absolutely retarded?
>>
>>1423311
he's doing neither you dumbfuck
>>
>>1423552
no bully
>>
>>1423068
Is this attachment made to be attached to the 3D nozzle?
>>
>>1424418
no
>>
>>1424457
What's it made to be attached to then?
>>
>>1424462
hotend carriage
>>
>>1423068
look at all the heat this thing is generating. literally 3d printing liquid copper into self adhesive coilstock. where does the heat come from???
>>
>>1424635
what fucking heat? where is using heat?
>>
>>1424647
there comes a time in every man's life where he must spit out the bait
>>
>>1424635
ikr, man think of the electricity bill!

Why doesn't the heated wire burn the tape?
>>
>>1425807
Maybe it's some sort of special tape.
>>
>>1425902
it's a heat resistant, pressure sensitive, fast acting adhesive
>>
>>1425903
woah damn that's pretty high tech, must cost a fortune to buy a roll
>>
>>1425807
Is he heating the wire or not? Please stop memeing
>>
>>1426088
of course he's heating it, don't you know how 3d printers work?
>>
>>1426225
No. Can you control how much you're heating it? Why doesnt the coil look melted?
>>
>>1426243
Yea man you can control how much current you're pushing through the heating element.
>Why doesnt the coil look melted?
copper doesn't actually change color when melted
>>
>>1426251
Is the coil going to work as well when the enamel/coating is heated?
>>
>>1426294
hey now i'm sure the guy wouldn't have uploaded the video if it didn't work
>>
>>1426374
There's no test of him actually using the coil anon
>>
Can we fucking stop with this thread? My bait worked, and it was shit bait. Let this shit die
>>
>>1426629
What bait anon?
>>
>>1426629
Fuck you I'm OP anon

I still don't understand how to make this shit
