Back in 2015 I wanted a CoreXY 3D printer. However none of the designs available back then didn't tick all of the following boxes:
☐ CoreXY (yeah I said that, I know)
☐ Parametric (I had some constraints in the parts I wanted to use so I needed to be able to modify it easily)
☐ Open Source (No non-commercial stuff)
☐ Designed using Open Source. (I don't want to have to use proprietary software to improve/modify it)
☐ Printable (I wanted to buy vitamins off the internet and print the parts and not have to get other custom parts like lasercut wood)
Since there was no such printer (now there is another one) I decided to create one from scratch.
I also wanted it to house it under the reprap project so Rosalind was born.
