    Very nice. Any chance of some close-up pictures of the completed printer? How do the prints look at the top of the print volume?

    Would you be willing to share more detail, most primarily what alloy you used for you base and top and rough total cost? Any details on carriage, build volume, effector, limit sensors etc would be appreciated as well

    for now.....
    I had the top and bottom made out of aluminum. Total cost will be hard cause some of the motors, belts and some other parts I had already, but I will try.
    build volume is 240 Diameter ( that's what I set it for I think I can push it further... but didn't need to )
    Carriage are cbeam gantry plates
    end effector is 3d printed from my own design, will most likely have that made out of aluminum soon.
    limit sensor are optical

    hotend is a the minihotend from Deltaprintr ( not a misspelling )

    So I did a rough total cost... not including all the nuts and bolts, so just the main parts.. I'm around the $1100 mark.
    (That's including the overkill Bottom and Top plates which cost $350 to have water jetted, I do love the accuracy of it though !!! )

    I have most of the main parts for a similar project, with a 330mm base and 1.5m long rails. Of course, by the time everything is taken into account, I hope to have a printable height of 1m.

    Maybe I should be, but I"m not. 4020 with Nema 17 and belts, linear kits from Open Builds part store. I am planning on adding some 4020 or 6020 across the bottom to stiffen.
