The SHORTCAT is a 18″ tall, 12″ wide Pyramid Reprap 3D printer.

The SHORTCAT applies TALLCAT style design in a more compact form factor.
By bending the supports into a pyramid shape, a symmetrical base is possible that uses no frame spacers. This significantly extends the x-axis travel and allows a 8″ wide table to exit the front and back of the machine on the y-axis. A thin-profile 360 bearing allows for clearance from the shorter pyramid.
Adjustable compliant bed:
Drafting film surface (offers excellent grip)
adhesive sheet (holds surface flat)
acrylic (smooth and flat table)
cardboard (compliance layer)
