Shoot for the Moon!
The 3ft tall 1X2 "TALLCAT" has a vertical build area of 640mm, yet it takes up no more desk space than the "Compact" Reprap 1X2. It has an increased X and Y build area as well.
The 1X2 and 1X2 Tallcat are RepRap class 3D-printers that can be built with access to only a drill-press and hand-saw. The parts for the entire system can be made with one-dimensional tools, straight cuts and common materials.
607mm tall single-walled tube(40mm diameter). Z-Step: 0.30mm Print Time: 5hr40min
The TALLCAT turns its biggest weakness, long flexible rods, into a strength by using the flex to triangulate the frame into a pyramidal structure. The rods bend out of the way of the z-bearing blocks as they ascend from the inside of the pyramid to the outside. This makes full end-to-end travel possible even with a highly acute frame.
