+Stephanie S My current CoreXY layout. X is longer than Y to get full travel for dual extruders to extremities of 300x200mm print bed. Small adjustment visible in motor mounts for belt tensioning also, but this is poor design and new abandoned.
Also shown is the underside of my x-carriage. The design is a highly modified Mendel90 x-carriage. It takes 2 E3D v6s held in a clamp mounting adapted from a design by aXe on Thingiverse. I'm only using 3 linear bearings which are more forgiving than 4 when it comes to alignment, but have proven an excellent arrangement from years of use on my Mendel90. I've also switched to LMS8UU (shorter linears), also saving weight there, with not evidence of loss of movement precision.

Working on a new printer design/build project for some time now. Sharing a photo or two at this point as I start to tune in two-colour printing. Inspiration from many sources. Much more detail to follow on my Blog.

Quick design & print for a photo frame that had a broken stand. Drawn in Sketchup, printed in Faberdashery Gold on my Mendel90. Sliced at .2 layer height with 10% infill. Shared on Youmagine.
