I think I'd like to do something nice for somebody. I think it's good if you smile at someone, and they smile in return. Voluntary love encourages people to create a sense of friendliness.

All metal parts were designed in Solidworks and sent to fabricator for laser cutting and bending. Black metal parts are made of 2mm thick metal sheet and powder coated. The bed and X gantry are 5mm thick 6061T aluminium.

Chose to use some 400mm MGN12 linear rails from Kossel Mini hence the XL size

Raised the heated aluminium bed by 20mm with Nylon spacers to avoid heat conduction to the chassis
