Below is my 3D DeltaBot printer project.
Full description, detailed write-up, G-Code files and CAM files here: Make a 3D Printer using a CNC router - the "Deltabot"
It uses three 750mm 20x20mm v-slot rails, 9 v-wheel kits and 3 smooth idler pulley kits.
The base and top are MDF (medium density fiberboard). the carriage and end effector are ABS plastic. Arms are 6mm x 285mm carbon fiber rods with neodymium magnets.
Attached are the DXF files.

UPDATE: The Repetier firmware working great now.
Hotend purchased and end effector redesigned.

Reason for this BuildTo challenge myself. I don't even know what I would use it for.
