The Omega3D is one of the largest, most customizable, affordable RepRap printers.
- Printed Parts: ???
- Non-Printed Parts: ???
- Material Cost: ???
- Cost: $900(not yet for sale, will be available after development is complete)
- Printing Size: 400x400x400mm on plate, 460x460x460 with "Printed Bed"(See Below for more details)
- Precision: .003mm (position/printing) depends on your setup
- Speed: ??cm/s (position/printing) depends on your setup
This list is of the improvements and special features compared to most RepRap 3D printers:
- large format
- expandability, allowing for the creation of larger or smaller printers
The Omega3D is currently in an "under-wraps" development stage and will be released when the development is complete.
The Frame of the Omega3D is constructed of lightweight, strong aluminum 20x20 extrusions.
- light and sturdy - modifiable
- slightly more complicated construction method
The Omega3D uses, including the extruder, 5 NEMA17 stepper motors. Two of these motors, the Z axis motors, are connected to the same stepper driver of the electronics. If using Wade's Extruder, its stepper motor needs a minimum holding torque of 40Ncm (0.4Nm). More information can be found on the Stepper Motor page.
About any RepRap controller works for the Omega3D. Required features: 4 stepper drivers, 1 thermistor input and 1 heater output for the extruder and optionally another thermistor/heater pair for the heated bed. Choosing the best one for your printer is mostly a matter of taste. For comparisons, see List of electronics, Comparison of Electronics and Alternative Electronics.
Extruder The Omega3D uses a bowden extruder, adding flexibility and speed to the extruder nozzle.
Heated Bed The basic model of the Omega3D does not include a heated bed, thus making PLA a recommended filament.
