So.. how is your new printer doing. i want to make one... but want to check out yours.

the holes are 50mm apart, its for a typical wade extruder mount (idk where i got greg) but the current main body didnt fit with the holes it currently has :D

(After days of trying to comment... lol)


Not sure what I want to do with it yet, but I like the way the idler part glides inn with support on the sides. I'm just starting yo learn Sketchup.

*.3ds files if you can?

I like your design.
Any chance you could upload a file that I can work a bit on in Sketchup 8?
I tried the STL, but i only get triangles.

What do you want to do to it? What can sketchup import?

would it be too much trouble for a main body that has the mounting holes layer out like a greg extruder? i noticed the ones on this one are closer together

What are the dimensions of the holes?

Love the design. Could you upload the design files? I ended up with a Mini hyena 11X5 and I need to make some tweaks. TIA

What Software do you use? I can upload Parasolid files for you. Or, Trinity have a Openscad version. I dont use Openscad.

How heavy is it ? Is your delta printer a Rostock-like ? Won't it be too heavy ?

It's basically 200g assembled print head. Well its delta so yes its similar and firmware is the same. However, my set-up has bearings at every pivot point dramatically reducing friction and ware.
