Not finished, but I don't think its bad so far. Please let me know if my instructions are clear enough. These instructions are obviously meant for someone with experience building 3D printers, because it is not yet the full retail version.
There is a picture of most of the stuff I have printed up until now. The quality is really something else, It's better than my Jonbot.
I'm going to be launching a really small Kickstarter. I'm going to be asking for a few thousand only (not only, that's a lot, but I don't want to ask for an astronomical amount that will never be reached) I was hoping to get around doing a Kickstarter but that's really the only way to gauge interest. At $3000 that's only 6-7 printers.
Here are what the tiers will be;
Hardware only pack - no printed parts, but everything else you will need.
Kit - a partially assembled kit. Well, kit isn't really the word the it. Basically all you have to is place the rods in, tighten some screws, and clip on everything else. The top and bottom frame will come assembled, the effector/runner assembly will come assembled, it shouldn't take more than a half hour to build (depending on how fan you can tighten screws)
That's it. No fully assembled printer for now. Mainly because there's no need to have it fully assembled. The increased shipping cost for a small individual like me would be insane for a full printer and the kit takes basically no time to build. Now if somehow there is a lot of interest, there will be a fully assembled model, but I'm thinking that that is not going to happen.
