A redesign of the awesome Printrbot, in aluminum.
This is my aluminum version of the awesome Printrbot. Printrbot's open source design files and great assembly videos were instrumental in getting this guy redesigned and fabricated. --Thanks guys
Most, if not all, of my design files are included here but I should note that if you intend to actually make one of these, you should probably shoot me an email. All the files have already been offset for an 1/8" endmill, and some of the layers are labeled as things that make sense to me, but maybe not someone else. There are also a few improvements that could be made --not enough to warrant the making of another one, but if you decide to take on the challenge, there are some things that could be done a bit better. This project is really intended for someone pretty well versed in the ways of the CNC...
YouTube of the project can be found here:
