New RepRap Under Construction
The new design moved from virtual to real world over the weekend. I found longer sockets are going to be needed, and you really need to avoid having the layers print along the length of the sockets. Still, a mock-up is starting to take shape in the workshop.
The Z axis is looking like being even more unusual than I'd originally anticipated. But simple. Very simple. The drive mechanism isn't on the plans yet...
The X carriage sits on the top 2 rails. It's my one-piece design: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:9385
