    Description

    This project is inspired by the following printers ultimaker/corecube/Ingentis.

    New Zealand does not have a very large 3d community and to be honest everything parts or printer related is either expensive/over priced (with the exception of makershop) or you need to import it yourself and nz customs is just plan nasty

    I have uploaded some version 2 parts as i was unhappy with the first design, In addition to it looking more block like they are alot tougher

    With trying to keep in a budget and also with whats easily available this project was borne to meet one of my goals of making a kickass 3d printer

    So here is my work in progress called XMaker

    The printer has the same external dimensions as the Ingentis
    for the xy it will be using 500mm 8mm rod with direct drive stepper motors and gt2 pulleys and belts

    XY running under power
