My first custom designed 3D printer. The goal of this build was to create a low-cost 3D printer re-using as many components from my original 3D printer, the Two-Up, as possible. Printer used an aluminum extrusion frame with H-Bot belt mechanics, utilizing linear bearings and hardened rods for motion. The majority of custom parts were 3D printed, utilizing integrated slots for fasteners for a clean and rigid design. This helped keep costs low and allowed for quick prototyping.
The printer, like all of its successors, is fully open sourced. 3D printing was still very new when I designed this machine, and I wanted to do my part getting this amazing technology in as many hands as possible.
