For some time now, work has been proceeding to bring to fruition the crudely concieved idea of a 3d printer that would not only supply inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors, but would also be capable of automatically synchonizing cardinal grammeters.
I mean a 3d printer built of openbeam and openrail with a 300mm Square build platform.
Such a printer is one I’m calling bigfoot.

I’ve designed every printed piece of this printer, including the mount for the extruder, though it conforms to richrap’s quickfit X carriage dimensions. The extruder itself is an upgraded qu-bd extruder. The frame should allow printing up to 500mm in height. It should also allow tensioning looped belts(uncut), and allow both heads of a dual extruder full travel on the build platform.

At present, I have exhausted the 200 M3 nuts I bought with my openbeam, and await more.

Design files can be found on thingiverse.
