I’ve ordered a 3d printer (here) and I’ve decided I’m going to use it to bootstrap the build of a Delta style printer that can do larger jobs, over 8 cubic feet.
I’ve already ordered “The Kraken” (here) a multi-hot-end extruder kit that lets you print four materials in one print job.
I’m thinking of doing something similar to the 3DR here) but with a print area big enough to do a volume of 8 cubic feet.
- Kraken hot end (ordered)
- Aluminium square tubing for frame (RONA)
- Bearings (Princess Auto)
- Fasteners with metric threads (RONA)
- Threaded rod (RONA)
- Motor controller board (TBD)
- Brackets (from my own 3d printer!)
I’m starting on the design now. Even more work to do now.
