You may have seen my kickstarter project:
unfortunately, I did not reach the target that I fixed...
Files can be found on pinshape:
I expected to take one month off my job to "finish" the job: I wanted to improve the design and prepare accurate, complete, clear building instructions...
But I still can release my "uncomplete" job...
The desing is good enough to be sold as is...
About this 3d printer:
Sturdy, solid, foldable, portable, easy to use, easy to build for around 300$
You can bring it anywhere.
If you don't have that much room, you can put it away when non needed.
Auto bed leveling.
You can upgrade the printer you already have into a case-rap!
8x8x8 or 8x12x8.
(if you want to build 8x12x8, just add 4 inches (200mm to the width of the case rods and straps.)
And if I start selling more here... I may find the time to improve the design and the build instructions!
So about the stls
You will find them on pinshape:
... Some of them needs to be printed more than once. I've written it in the file's name. (2x, 3-4x)
The following link is my "un" complete "un" accurate building instructions. Some parts of the instructions are up to date, some are not. You will find in this document the blueprints for the case, the buying list, etc. The wiring is even written in french, easier for me... But for the wiring anyways, it's just like any other reprap 3d printer, you'll find the informations at least 1000 other places on internet.
For the x carriage, I suggest to print in abs so that it resists more to heat, but pla is ok... You'll have to clean some "in design" support material for this part.
For all other parts, print and use!
I started with a mendel 90 That I've put into a box....
It was too big and heavy.
So I decided to start the design all over.
I'ts been 2 years I'm working on it. I've build 12 up to now. I improved it soo much!
