Carteasian top speed?
February 17, 2023 06:27AM
I built a printer using 3030 and Makerbot kinematics a simple Carteasian bot, I designed it my self did the CAD and printed the parts. This was the first time I'd done anything like that and although it works as expected I lost a lot of bed space and I put the electronics in what I now find to be the most inconvenient place possible.

So I want to do a rebuild, my choices are to keep the very stable Carteasian setup redesigning it to save some more bed space and move the electronics or rebuild as CoreXY which would print faster.

What I would like advice about is a likely top print speed (direct drive preferred to bowden) of a Carteasian printer based on 3030 extrusion?

I realise it less than CoreXY.

Thanks All.
