That's insanely cheap for a printer of this size (or for any home built printer). Nice work.

Thanks! It was a fun project with my daughter. The last printer I built is my smallest, so I have the spectrum covered! If you can't tell I have quite a bit of aluminum tubing...

Do you have the measures in mm? because if I do the conversion it measures like 15.8mm. And where do the bed holes go? and the last question Could I use steel tubing? Great design.

I measured the tubes in a couple of places and I get 15.92 to 15.94mm, so I think 16mm should be close enough. Steel tubing should work, just a little harder to drill for the holes that lock the tubes into the frame corner. BTW, I squared everything up and used super glue to fix the tubes in place before drilling.

The bed holes depend on where you put the mount.

It was a fun build...
