Having been involved in industrial automation across varied industries as an Industrial Controls Engineer, I began designing and building 3D printers in 2018, sharpening my horns building the Railcore II 3d printer as a first project. Though the Railcore II is a great design, I felt compelled to produce a 3D printer that was bigger and more robust using larger extrusions, and an improved CoreXY belt configuration.
The result, codenamed "Venom 2" is a fully expandable, open design printer design that can fit a wide range of printing tasks....
The "mini" model is a 16" x 16" x 16" build volume printer using Hiwin MGN15, 12mm linear rails with a single printhead, expandable to 6 printheads in a 3 x 2 arrangement.
The Pro Series increases the XY build area to 20" x 20", and has upgraded 15mm precision linear rails. Similarly the Pro Series 20 x 20 is expandable to 6 printheads in 1 x 6, or 2 x 3 configurations depending on the printing needs.
For larger print jobs the Pro Series 2 adds 400mm to the Y dimension making a one printer print farm with six printheads in one row.
