Thanks for downloading!
We'd love to hear from you if the print was successful.
In my pursuit of making my own printer I believe that you need to give back to the community,So here are the files I`m modeling in cad and printing3D printer parts and enhancements

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
