The Review of: Openbuilds HPV2 Mini V linear actuator Effective travel Linear module with NEMA17 17hs3401S stepper motor for Reprap 3D printer Review

The OpenBuilds HPV2 Mini V Linear Actuator is a versatile modular system designed for various applications, including 3D printers. Let’s break down the key components:

  1. Linear Actuator:

    • The Mini V Linear Actuator utilizes the V-Slot™ system, which allows for smooth linear motion. It’s a compact and precise mechanism that can be extended or combined with other actuators to create custom setups.
    • The effective travel (stroke length) options for this actuator are 100mm, 150mm, 200mm, 250mm, 300mm, 350mm, and 400mm.
    • It’s commonly used in applications such as 3D printers, monitor equipment, medical machinery, textile machinery, packaging machinery, stage lighting, and laser systems.
  2. Stepper Motor:

    • The 17HS3401S Stepper Motor is integrated into the actuator. Stepper motors provide precise control over movement and are commonly used in CNC machines, robotics, and 3D printers.
    • The motor leads are approximately 30cm long.
  3. Applications:

    • As mentioned earlier, this linear actuator is ideal for Reprap 3D printers. It can be used for the printer’s Z-axis (vertical movement) or other linear motion requirements.
    • The modular design allows you to build custom machines by connecting multiple actuators together. For instance, you can create a printer bed that remains stationary while the extruder moves along the X and Y axes.
  4. Availability:

    • You can find the parts needed for this build as a bundle in the OpenBuilds Part Store.
