Printer spawned from the X3D XS Corexy 3D printer on Thingiverse:
X3D XS COREXY Printer by Unix
This printer is portable - cant put it in your hatchback but by removing the two front square tubes (bottom and top) along with the bed the printer can rotate out of a standard door. Slots in the tubes fit on to 3D printed sections of the corner brackets.
The printer is built from 3D printed parts, majority of hardware and frame aluminium is available at big box home improvement stores (Lowes, HomeDepot, etc.), smooth rods purchased from McMaster-Carr.
Printer is nearing completion, with successful function all 3D printed parts/models will be available for download.
Build progress is on social media and YouTube (link to playlist)
(Portable) Large Format 3d Printer 4ft square frame. Build Volume 36in x 36in x 36in
Large format printer build based off successful small Corexy. I figured it could be scaled to large format and be portable. Portable meaning by removing a few pieces it could effectively be rotated out of a standard door frame.

Reason for this BuildAt the start of the build all large formats were outside my price range (pre CR10s etc). Goal was to do this build for sub $500 while improving my build skills. Lastly to print very large things
