New 3D Printer Project

A Project to build a custom 3D printer from parts a) at the space and/or b) readily available for cheap if necessary. This in part will build on our attempts to revive a dead Stratasys FDM2000 Printer

I kind of envision it working like the printer in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqsDSWC8z7Y

We have the following pieces:

  • XY stage from the scrapped FDM2000
  • A large quantity of stepper motors
  • linear bearings and rails of various types
  • RAMPS and RAMBo 3D printer control boards
  • Power supplies
  • Extruder parts
  • OpenBeam and other extrusion
  • Taig Micro Lathe, MaxNC mill, and Monoprice MP Select Mini 3D printer with which to make any necessary custom parts

Add-ons that might be cool:

  • Ability to swap 3D printer head with a (2-3W) laser engraver head?
