    Very nice build! I like the enclosed design and the sturdy metal construction, I would like to build something like this next.

    Do you think your bowden set-up could handle flexible filaments? this is concern I am having with my current build.

    Thanks Gents. Appreciate the praise.
    The goal was a printer that was fairly shock-proof and transportable and built as a 'consumer product' Mark.
    Interesting Skeleton build, James. look forward to seeing it progress. I don't think flexible filaments get on with bowden extruders very well but it looks like you have the head room to fit a direct extruder if you need it.

    Alan;
    What Version of Solidworks do you run? I only have 2013.
    Can you save everything as parasolids?
    Then I could load them no matter what version you have.

    Thanks

    Hi just curious if I could get a better picture of your timing belt apparatus for the X and Z axises. Looking to build a printer and want to know how you positioned them.

    Hi Noah.
    Excuse the delay. I've been away from PC.
    If you can get a CAD viewer like Autodesk's DWG trueView and have a look at the attached CAD file, that may help.
    I'll add some images for you, maybe later today.
    Regards
    a
