Separate Reprap Air Section?
April 28, 2013 09:04AM
Hi guys, would it be a nice idea to create a separate Reprap Air section?

I notice a lot of people around me encounter the same problems in calibration and machine stability, so I would like to suggest hereby to create a new section for the Reprap Air machines. This will enhance the information collection about this certain line of machines.

From the reprap wiki (http://reprap.org/wiki/RepRap_Air) Most of the frame rods and RP pieces have been replaced by "three pieces of 6mm acrylic". These are dimensioned following the exact dimensions of the original Prusa design. So for all intents and purposes this machine works as a Prusa with all sizing, trips, electronics, firmware etc. of a Prusa.

So calibration etc should also be identical to "normal" Prusa's. Imo they are just a small variation of the Prusa, and shouldn't be threaded as a different machine.

Well, I don't know, I would like an admin to reply on this winking smiley I understand what you mean, but I disagree, since I see the Air is getting it's own variations now smiling smiley
