      Started my 3D printer build. This is modeled after my steel framed CNC router.

      The frame is 1.75" steel tubing with a approximate footprint of 12" x 18".

      The X and Y axis will use ballscrews and the Z stainless steel fast thread Acme screw.

      All axis's will be driven with Nema 17 motors.

      I have been acquiring parts of eBay and Amazon for the last 2-3 months.

      I tried everything to get a driver loaded for real Arduino Megaa 2560. Just got a Chinese knock out and Windows 7 liked on the first try.

    I really liked how my steel framed CNC turn out.
