I am in the process of designing and building an H-Bot Core xy type 3D printer with a 400x400x400mm build volume and fixed build plate. Another key design attribute is that all of the moving mechanisms can fit within the frame for easy addition of panels for a temperature controlled build area. Lots of other robust design attributes - check it out...
H-Bot CoreXY Cube with Fixed Build Plate
Build in 'H-Bot and Core XY' published by TomH, Apr 21, 2015.
Use of V-Slot for frame and rails with option to use identical 500mm uncut lengths: 8 * 20x60 x 500mm 8 * 20x40 x 500mm 7 * 20x20 x 500mm (2 cut into four identical 125mm pieces for filament holders) Use of uncut 500mm rails obtained through use of 12 joining plates for use as spacers. Alternate approach is to trim two 20x40 and 1 20x20 rail by 6-8mm each. Build volume ~400mm cubed (with dual extruders). Use of only openbuilds components! Currently in design phase...

Reason for this BuildTo help teach my kids how to build things and to provide a 3D printing resource for the First Robotics team that I coach.
