Eventorbot! Open source 3D printer. Simple with less materials. Frame is made of a single 4' long, 2 1/2" square tube (16 gauge/1.5mm/.0598" thick, cost: less then $20.00). With the design there is less plastic parts, stronger structure, all wires are hidden, and a more appealing/finish look. The blue print file will get you more familiar with the construction of the unit. The downloadable file is my blue print that I designed and used to build the machine. The accuracy is to the exact of my build.
For more images and updates like:
The unit is supposed to resemble a robotic arm with hydraulic tubes. It was designed for prints to be less affected by vibrations. With the 1 solid frame, any vibrations of any axis will cause the other axis to move with it. For example: If the X axis causes a slight vibration/1mm movement to the right, the Z and Y axis will also move that 1mm to the right. This will result in a better print as everything will remain squared.
For those who do not have access to a 3D printer. You can order the plastic parts and frame at: kickstarter.com/projects/1874396831/eventorbot-open-source-3d-printer
Eventorbot has met its funding goal!
Well, I'm speechless and overwhelmed with all the support. I will like to say a BIG thank you for all the support, kind words, and to all the backers. To be able to share and have your interest in something I created is a great feeling. Everyone of you guys have made something that was a big dream become reality. Eventorbot, as a 3D printer is now going to happen! You will have no regrets in owning a Eventorbot, our machine will be a strong contender.
Thank you... thank you... thank you...
Attached are Google SketchUp/SKB files. This is a free software from google. To view the file, please download Google SketchUp. From there, open the file and you can view the Eventorbot from any angle and take it apart as you like.

2nd file is the schematic of the metal frame and hot head assembly bracket. Use this diagram to cut and drill the frame. Use the free google sketchup software. With the software use the tape measure and the protractor to get your measurements and angles. Note there is 9 taps on the frame and 2 taps on the hot head assembly bracket.

After you have finished the frame and have welded the corners together, you will also have to cut a 2.5" x 2.5" square on top of the frame (the corner caps will cover this corner).
