      Update:
      Here is a short video of it printing a tree frog. I have not finished the extruder calibration yet but it is printing pretty good.



      Building upon the great work done by Marshall Peck and others.

      I wanted a larger build area, stability, low part count and a easy to access tool holder.

      Information on the starting point of this build can be found here:
      Voxel OX - Extendable 3D Printer and CNC Platform | OpenBuilds

      I increased the size of the build to accommodate 500mm z-axis lead screws from openbuilds.

      The printer will start with a E3D V6 Lite hotend and will be controlled with a Azteeg controller running Smoothie Firmware.

      I am including build dimensions and pictures of the build in process.

    Reason for this Build

    I wanted a larger build platform compared to my homebrewed printer. Also I wanted stiffer mechanics to support other types of working ends. I am thinking of adding a simple cutter in the future.

    When it is completed and running it will get a dual hotend and the old printer will become something else.

    Inspired by
