hi, i was thinking to build this printer, where i can get more information on parts do you used?

They look like pretty standard parts. LM8uu linear bearings for the X&Y Axis, M8 rod for the shafts, either M8 threaded rod or 5/16" to drive the Y&Z-axis, the belt probably doesnt matter as long as you match it to a pulley that fits on your motor. motors look like nema17s, the Z axis is the only thing I can't say for certain, looks like aluminum rods but bigger than M8, M10? or 1/2? The couplers can be printed or you can use an old tubing trick with zipties.

All in all not sure I would recommend this for a printer build...wouldn't move too fast for multiple reasons. Also seems like he didn't finish his build, the model has more reinforcing in the Y axis that is missing in the build. I do give him props for simplicity though. Great job.
