So what is it called? I am not sure yet I kind of put some random names on the project page.
But what is different? Well I wanted to design a machine that is cheap to build using parts I could salvage out of printers / scanners / photocopiers whatever. But I also wanted a reasonably large build volume and the ability to easily reconfigure the machine to do whatever I desired, using it as a filament printer and SLA machine, a camera panning rig, or even an SLS machine.
So I set to work.
5/16" Zinc plated steel Rod
RAMPS 1.4 kit with Arduino mega, end stops, and 5 drv8825 drivers
12V 250W switch mode power supply
8mm Hardened Steel rods (salvaged from printers)
5mm Hardened Steel rod (salvaged from printers)
