Q*Bot - Opensource and ultra affordable Delta 3D Printer
After a couple of years that I follow 3D printing growth, I picked up all the best solutions, such as magnetic joints and prismatic linear guides and gathered them together in this project.
I have designed a complete 3D Delta Printer that can be built with about 200 euro (with electronics and graphical display, hotend and motors excluded).
Printable area: 200mm dia and 200mm height.
The printer is based on commercial Aluminum "L" profile, 25x25x4, which works as structure and linear guides as well. It's steady, fast and easy to build.
Here you can find related files, including Bill of Materials, CAD drawings (Solidworks and Spaceclaim) and all 3D printing objects needed.
It's intended to be an open project: who wishes to collaborate with ideas and improvements, is welcome!

The Printer is fast and precise.
