This is a geared version of an egg bot.
The gear allows for better resolution on the y-axis.
This project uses NEMA 14 instead of NEMA 17 stepper motors.
Running system with a Melzi Reprap board I had left over using a modifed merlin firmware.
Using a modified unicorn inkscape plugin.
Note: Several Parts require you to pause during printing and drop in a nut (M4 or 5/16)
- Added new Gear Y Plate. Stronger Design less flex.
- Added Thumb Nuts.
For those that want to use a reprap style board such as the Melzi board see the following locations for help with the software.
