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?"

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?

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."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1423210 && dateTime=="07/10/18(Tue)20:17:22")

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?"

But what about the attachment? How do I exactly make that?

Also, this is the 3D printer i have available for me to use

Would I just hook up a wire spool in place of the 3D printing material spool?"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1428321 && dateTime=="07/18/18(Wed)14:22:30")

Can you elaborate anon?

How do you even make a magnet in the first place"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1428335 && dateTime=="07/18/18(Wed)14:39:57")


The main thing is to have core material with known magnetic characteristics. Then design a magnetic circuit with the smallest air gap you can tolerate, or conversely, an air gap where the gap length is very small (10:1 or better) than the width or diameter of the air gap.

Then it's just a matter of adding the coils such that the applied Ampere-turns will provide the flux you want. A DC magnetic circuit is rather simple so long as you follow these rules and your core material characteristics are known within a reasonable accuracy.

And if you can get your hands on a gauss meter then you can check your results and adjust the current or winding design."

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1428362 && dateTime=="07/18/18(Wed)15:37:14")

calculations and specifications? Magnetics is not my strong suit
Why does it need an air gap? Why can't it just be a solid bar of iron wrapped with the relevant turns of wire with the relevant amount of current passing through?"

if(Anonymous && title=="" && postNumber==1428379 && dateTime=="07/18/18(Wed)15:54:01")

Electrons flow on the outside of the wire because they push away from each other.

the most effective way to increase surface area, or increase the amount of electrons that can flow through an area, is by putting a whole bunch of wires together without actually letting them touch, otherwise the electrons will escape one wire and space themselves out over the surface area of the funky shaped wire you created by touching the individual wires together.

Magnet wire is lacquered wire that creates this gap while also not really increasing the diameter of the wire, so it's excellent for coiling."
