Introduction

An interesting reduction of a delta bot to only use two axis of freedom on the main effector. The build bed would move in the Z-axis as usual for an XY or some polar bots. The extruder would have similar stiffness issues to the SCARA type bots but with a couple less joints.

Potentially a compact wall bot with linear and polar motion.
