MCXY - Mini Laser - cuted aliminium 3D printer

Small compact 3d printer

Similar projects worth following
Concept of simple laser cuted printer.


Dimensions 190x190x251cm
Plate dimensions 790x470x2mm aluminium
Print volume only 8x8x8cm, maybe more
Graphics or text display
Arduino mega and RAMPS

Why small?

1. I have bigger printer but every print above 5cm is hours and hours of waiting.
2. I want something small, desktop, portable ...
3. Designed as proof of concept
4. Drawing can be simple expanded in future for bigger printer

Main advantages.

- world fist printer drawed in Eagle PCB CAD :D (included)
- no printed parts
- core xy movements

I working on it now, nothing is finished, some parts missing :)

Manufactured in WWW.IDILNA.CZ

Laser cut with material (2mm dural) cost about 40Eur (1000czk)
Some parts are doubled or useless.

I draw all without bearings in hand = now I need revise all to double all bearings :(
