A printer of my own making

After learning so much about 3d printer, I am excited to continue. My current printer can make some pretty nice things, but it is limited in the size that it can make. There are many things that I would like to print that it just isn’t quite big enough. After doing some research of printer designs, I have decided to build me a CoreXY style printer. The first step was to design the XY section. There will be two stepper motors with two belts and pulleys to control the XY motion. I am building it out of 2020 extruded shapes but instead of using aluminum I am trying to do it with all printed pieces. This may not work, but it is worth a try.

The first corner assembled.

All corners assembled, motors go in the bottom, pulleys in the top.

Making more struts. One failed, but with several like this removing the failed one will allow the others to finish. It takes hours to print, so the loss of one is worth trying to continue anyways.
