This was a build to solve my problem of needing a printer with a large build volume, but not having a 2-3k budget. Besides, I’m an engineer and love building and designing things and solving problems. I fly quadcopters, and this also was helpful for printing parts like camera mounts. The picture is kind of misleading, because I have a small build plate on, but the real one is 2.5x larger.It has gone through several revisions until I had one I was happy with. BTW, sorry there are no files, as my source files are a huge mess, and I don’t have time to organize them.

Reason for this BuildI wanted a large scale printer for lower cost than a commercial one.
