Summary

So, here it is. about 3 months of work. Still doing some fine tuning and probably forgot to upload some files so don't hesitate to drop me a line.

Main feature is the box-frame design, which doubles as chamber. You can easily make fully closed chamber. Holes for filament and X bars are actually small enough to prevent noticeable convection. Temperature is easily raised 30-40C above ambient by the heated bed alone.

instructions are in Polish, but I reckon it's pretty self explanatory form pictures. Motivate me to translate more quickly by declaring in comments you wish to build one.

Instructions

Polish instructions: http://3fx.eu/gD/gD_instr.html

The box: you can use whatever method you're comfortable with to create the box frame. plywood, steel, concrete or the default aluminium composite aka dibond. Some bend lines are marked via markers (;p) others are obvious. Check pictures to verify.

make sure the box has square angles, should be no problem if CNC cut dibond is used.

after that is done just mount all the pieces together :)

you can use default CNC cut aluminium Xcart and gHE or Prusa i3 style or whatever else vertical X cariage.

it's obviously meant to go with:

and

but the golem philosophy (oh wow ;p) is to just make use of whatever you find in your workshop :) the very first "A" model was named golem because it was just "random pieces of workshop matter animated at-hoc into 3D printer"

for cable guides I use:

If you have any problem/questions just ask. I'm still motivated to make this project outstanding so don't hesitate.
