I think I am going to start me a new project and build me a 3D printer.

Should be fun.

@omnipotens
I did that one time. It sure was. Make sure you don't get an acrylic frame. Mine broke at nearly every bolt/nut insert.

@chmod777 Well I was thinking of giving a delta a shot. I was thinking of running by a local shop here that has a CNC machine and just cut out me the frame.

@omnipotens
Nice. I built mine from a kit. Sounds like you have a lot of planning to do.

@chmod777 Planning me Naaa. I fly by the seat of my pants and just build lol. I have the design and calculations in my head about all the planning I am going to do is draw something up for the CNC to cut.

@omnipotens
Just as long as the three sides are janky in the same way. I'm sure it'll be just fine.

@omnipotens
Worked fine for a while. Then I glued and taped all the joints so I could print some supports to hold it all together. Still works alright. I've been planning to get around to making either an aluminum extrusion or plywood frame but haven't.

@omnipotens
I haven't really cared about the resolution it can get. I care more about how fast and big it can print. Which has been good enough for me.

@chmod777 Well I want good fast and big LOL One reason I looking at a delta as you can print much faster as you dont have to overcome the inertia and still get a good res.

@chmod777 Tux was printed at 0.2 layer height at 100 mm/s on my delta

@omnipotens it is. Built mine myself, from lasercut aluminium and lots of threaded rod

@omnipotens bunch of problems initially, but after i got it set up properly, it's been working great
