After a Prusa I3 , a Mendelmax 2 , a Vslot Kossel , i decide to build my own 3D printer based on openbuild products,
This 3D printer is fully scalable , so if you need a big printing surface you can build it.
Attention , this work is in progress ...
The Ramps 1,4 board was remove . I prefer the Rambo 1,2d Board.
video of the first movements
First prints are pretty good , on a 7 hours print ... no problem
I'm uploading the first print video on you tube .. stay in touch
My first big print is finished ...
My video is coming , but it is pretty long to upload due to my poor 2MB connection :-(
Video is avalable ... Enjoy
dimensional test ...Done; OK
Overhang test ...done ; OK
Bridge test ... done ; OK
Very Long printing test ...done ; OK
All works fine
I will just add some mods in few day , like an LCD screen , a spool Holder ...
Now My Z axis use 6 solid V wheels instead 3 and Y carriage use 4 solid V wheels instead 3
Electronic board is a Rambo 1.2d
