My CoreXY 3d printer that was my first build. From start to finish, I spent about six months planning and building it. I use the term ‘planning’ very loosely here. Honestly, it was more ignorance and enthusiasm than anything.
This was the basic version before I upgraded. This is vanilla Wildbot.
Mic-6 Aluminum Bed
Keeps extruder weight balanced
Narrow to maximize X travel
Short to maximize Z height
Directed at the part, not the nozzle
Doesn't block view of nozzle
Is it a D-Bot?
Well, kind of. It certainly started as a D-bot. I read the build guide and ordered the parts on the BOM. At first glance, the D-bot looked like a well thought out build.
However, once I started building, I ran into huge design flaws. Probably most people wouldn't think they were design flaws but I think I have a unique perspective because I'm an industrial maintenance technician.
- Cantilevered, poorly supported bed
- PCB Heater w/4 leveling screws
- Printed Bowden Extruder
- Two steppers to raise the Z-axis
