      After studying other cantilever designs I came up with a more rigid framing design for a cantilever type printer. The X & Z AXIS framing should be rigid enough to support using a full size build bed (8"x 8") and a direct drive extruder without vibration or leveling problems.

      The purpose of posting this design is to reveal the framing concept, not a full printer design. Builders are invited to use the framing design and their own favorite extruders, build beds, PSUs, and controller boards

      The images included in the attached files tab are merely a sample of how components could be added to the framing design for a complete full sized printer.
      1. Special Notes

        I suffered a stroke 2 years ago. Following 2 years of advanced rehab therapy I am still fully and permanently paralyzed with left arm and hand. and still partially paralyzed with left leg and foot. As a result, my days of building 3D printers are over. If anyone wants to build a printer off this framing design and and market said printer under their own name, do so with my profound blessing. I have enjoyed the camaraderie and inventiveness of this forum since it's very beginning, and bid you all a heartfelt goodbye and good luck.
