Really printing printers this time

Sunday, July 14th, 2013

The title of my last post was intended to be figurative. Yet here I am with a second printer on my desk. No instructions or a bill of materials this time around, just some photos to work backwards from and a Google Group.

It's not something that I would necessarily recommend doing unless you're slightly nuts and have some spare time on the weekends. But now I have about 6x the build volume and can print 3x as fast. And Deltas just look incredibly cool - My wife calls it the Spiderbot.

It's all open source and on GitHub, with the main development here and my fork, with some custom parts and modifications, here.
