My former roommate and I went half and half on a Prusa i2 a year or two ago. After we decided we weren't living together again, we were faced with the question of who's going to keep the printer. I decided I wanted to create a larger printer, and long story short, this entire printer was created using that printer. Everything was designed by me. See the "Instructions" tab for a full build manual.
- The total build volume is roughly 1 cubic foot (12" x 12" x 12").
- The design challenges as well as a detailed overview of the printer can be found in the instructions.
NOTE - If you are building this printer, please make sure to check for updated files before printing the parts. I am constantly tweaking and redesigning this printer, and have been adding the revised files to each page, however the instructables link (below) will have a more in depth summary of each step regarding changes.**
The entire build as well as many details regarding hardware and components used can be found here: http://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Create-a-Large-3D-Printer-using-a-Smaller-3/
