I decided to build this printer to test my idea on solving my frustrations with establishing a reliable and steady 3d printer with high quality output. My previous drawing did not work out and today I will post some real photos as I have a structurally sound printer.
I can now start testing to see if it will deliver the quality that I am looking for.
Why is it Unique?
The X Axis does nothing but carry the entire Y Axis.
The Y Axis carries the Build Plate
The Z Axis carries the Hot End

My original Tevo Tarantula kit was ok..... I had issues with the X gantry staying level. I got rid of the wheels and replaced them with linear block bearings. I still had some issues with the X gantry. I swapped out the plastic parts with aluminum which was much better. Still not what I want yet
