Microfactory Boot Camp - Scaling to Large 3D Printer with a 1 Meter Bed
In order to make a large 3D printer, the 8 mm Universal Axis can be used up to 1 meter in size. If larger machines are needed, one can use the 1" version of the Universal Axis, which we have prototyped for a 5'x10' torch table. The frame can be enlarged correspondingly. Electronics need a larger external stepper driver such as the TB6600 - while using the same RAMPS based electronics. Heater elements can be scaled readily using nichrome wire-based heater elements.
