What printer would you build?

I have 4 stepper motors, various bearings and hardware. What other printer would you all build if you had enough parts to build a printer? What suggestions do you all have?

I'm currently building a tri-rod. But if I was to start another one, I'd go for a delta. Or maybe a rotary/SCARA.

Prusa i3 or a Mendel90. Much stiffer frame than relying on the linear rods. The new metal plus is essentially a fancied up i3. Or maybe one of Nicholas Seward's designs, perhaps a sextupteron.

I personally am quite happy with my simple. Why would I want anything else?

I went with a mendelmax (you would want a 5th motor tho) Coming from a simple 1405 it is much more rigid and about double the print area. If I were to do it again I would do a delta.
