Tetrahedron Gantry Concept
by coelestinian, published
It's a somewhat different 3D gantry design based around a tetrahedron. There are three axes, belt-driven or what-have-you, and each is connected by a sarrus linkage to the end platform.
I like it because it's extremely stable (tetrahedron) and every axis is exactly the same.
However, (1) it needs complex maths, (2) there's a large footprint, and (3) nobody's actually tried it.

You're right; it kind of is like the Rostock. There is a smaller printing area (it would get larger as you lessened the angle between the axes - right now it's 90 - Rostock is at some infinite zero angle), but, because of the shape, it would hopefully be more stable.

2) Design actual files.
3) Print and assemble.
4) Be astonished (hopefully) at amazing stability and resolution!
(As for the OpenSCAD file, open and animate it at around 20 FPS, 180 steps)
