The frame is complete! (well mostly)
The frame went together very well last night, and is almost as strong as I had anticipated. It was a bit shocking to see how quickly the frame came together, in under an hour, compared to the time it took to assemble the frame of the first printer. I’m awaiting linear rods, bearings and motors to arrive, so progress has slowed slightly, but it will give me some more time to work on the build guide, and further updates!
Lastly, the frame compared to the first printer. It’s slightly taller, and a bit wide, but not quite as deep. The printer right now feels smaller than the first though, but I guess that’s down to a light weight design and open frame.
