I am now working on the second iteration of the WorkHorse 3D Printer. The new prototype will have several fundamental changes that should greatly improve the effectiveness of the design.
I will be switching from a Delta design to a Cartesian design. I will replace the y axis linear actuator with a conveyor belt. The conveyor belt will be controlled by stepper motors that will provide y movement. This modification will simplify the design and reduce the number of separate mechanisms.
Additionally, I will improve the software application and provide a G-code tool path viewer to users. I will also add a widget that allows users to send single lines of G-code through the interface.
