Eventorbot! Open source 3D printer. Simple with stuff that are less. Framework consists of a single 4' long, 2 1/2" square tube (16 bore/1.5mm/.0598" thick, price: less then $20.00). With the layout there's a more appealing/finish appearance, as well as less plastic components, more powerful construction, all cables are concealed. The blue print file will get you knowledgeable about the building of the unit. The downloadable file is my blue print that I used to assemble the machine and designed. The truth is to the precise of my build.
For more pictures and upgrades like:

The unit is designed to resemble a robotic arm with hydraulic tubes. It was intended for prints to be influenced by vibrations. With the 1 framework that is solid, any vibrations of any axis will bring about the other axis to go with it. For example: If the X axis causes a small shaking/1mm motion to the right, that 1mm wills also transfer to the right. As everything will stay squared this is going to lead to a better print.

For people who don't have access to a 3D printer. It's possible for you to purchase the plastic components and framework at: kickstarter.com/projects/1874396831/eventorbot-open-source-3d-printer

Eventorbot has fulfilled its funding target!

Well, I am speechless and overwhelmed with all of the support. I'll like to say a BIG thank you for all of the support, kind words, and to every one of the backers. In order to share and have your interest in something I created is an excellent feeling. Everyone of you guys have made something that was a huge vision become reality. Eventorbot, as a 3D printer is presently going to take place! You'll have no sorrows our machine is going to be a solid competition in possessing a Eventorbot.

Thank you... thank you... thank you...


Attached are Google SketchUp/SKB files. This is really a free software from google. To see the file, please download Google SketchUp. From that point, open the file and take it apart as you enjoy and you'll be able to view the Eventorbot from any angle.

2nd file is the schematic of the alloy framework and hot head assembly mount. Use this diagram to cut and drill the framework. Make use of the google sketchup applications that is complimentary. With the applications make use of the protractor along with the tape measure. Notice there's 9 faucets on the framework and 2 spigots on the head assembly mount that is hot.
