Printing a printer: Core Bot Part 2


The first step I took in building my Core Bot was printing out all the parts for the machine. I was fortunate that my friend was traveling for 3 weeks and lent me his Makerbot Replicator 1 so that I could start print all the pieces I needed to build the printer. My family was mesmerized by the new machine and loved watching it print out new pieces day after day.

  1. Where’s the rest of the progress? I was linked here by Eric, he’s got a picture of your finished bot. I was hoping to see how your built went, it looks good in the finished picture!

  2. I am planning to build the C-bot. I like the cubic foot build volume, heated bed, dual extrusion capability, and corexy drive. I was wondering what lengths you cut your aluminum extrusion at to get a cubic foot build volume?
