LGX Lite Toolhead Setup For Voron V0.1

LGX Lite Toolhead Setup For Voron V0.1

An alternative to the Voron original setup

The Mini After-LGX-Lite

We are expecting Nemgrea to publish soon an official Voron V0.2 toolhead release to support the LGX Lite in the Future.

Meanwhile, Olof Ogland designed and tested already an alternative setup that you can use or adapt right now.

The main difference of this setup lies on the cowling. Olof’s cowling keeps the LGX Lite fully visible and accessible.

This project also includes:

  • Mounts for several hotends;
  • AdaFruit and Generic ADXL345 accelerometer mounts – for Klipper’s input shaping tuning;
  • Z-axis Bed Adjustable Y offset set – to allow the print bed to move back and forth from -1 up to +3.5 mm.
  • Klicky – a z-probe mount that attaches with magnets

Most screws required to perform the installation should be already on your kit. You may need some additional sizes and types. The following list identifies them:

  • 2x M3x6 BHCS for belts
  • 2x M3x30 BHCS for lgx lite
  • 4x M2.5×6 low profile for copperhead

Recently Mikael Levin expanded this project by creating a variation to be used with MGN9 rails.

Setting Up the Mini After LGX Lite

01 Preparation

Disassemble current extruder. Some screws and the hotend will be reused.

Add hotend of your choice to the hotend adapter
(click here to check all available models).

Insert PTFE a bit too deep in the PTFE cutting jig
(click here to download STL file)
.

Feed the hotend adapter and hotend up from below, pushing the PTFE to the right length and cut it.

You may use a drill bit to ream the top part of the insert for easier filament loading.

02 X-carriage and Belts

Remove the two screws in the LGX lite and remove motor and front plate.

Insert square nuts in the side slots if you want to use those mounting points for ADXL345.

Insert two square nuts to the front pockets.

Reattach front plate and LGX lite screws and add two m3 nuts to the screws in the back to keep the extruder from losing parts.

03 LGX Lite Preparation

Attach belts to new X-carriage like on the stock machine, but make sure to use M3x6 button head. If needed, you can remove the top extrusions and loosen front idler assemblies a bit in order to get more belt slack. Take care to not lose any inserted nuts in the extrusions.

When that’s done you may attach the X-carriage to the MGN7H.

This is a good time to add a small zip tie to the right zip tie loop and then the X-endstop. On the Mini After-LGX lite we use an inverted orientation for this microswitch and using a pair of needle nose pliers you may remove the steel arm as an optional step.

04 Install Extruder and Hotend in the Cowling

Use two M3x10 button head to attach LGX lite to cowling.

Insert fans like on the miniAB.

Gluing the wires to the front of the left fan with some CA glue might help to keep it in the right spot for assembling it with more ease.

Slide hotend up from the bottom and take care with the right fan wires, since it may poke out a bit from the fan and could rip if not careful.

Insert two M3x35 in the front holes.

05 Assemble

Remove M3 nuts from the back of the LGX lite and remove the back spacer plate.

Attach the assembly to the X-carriage using two M3x30 with the motor and tightening down the front M3x35.
