New 3d printer: Tantillus

It looks like every time I turn my computer on there is a new printer out.
Introducing: Tantillus
It is self replicating and the main feature is that two machines can be connected to print using the same electronics.

New 3d printer: Quantum ORD Bot

The Quantum ORD Bot is out. It is 3D printer  platform made from MakerSlide linear bearing. It is extremely ridged and very easy to build. The design can easily be scaled in X,Y and/or Z by simply changing the Makerslide lengths plus belt and leadscrew lengths. This is the mini or 'Quantum' version. The parts other than MakerSlide are either off the shelf standard items or easily fabricate with a laser cutter, 3D printer or CNC router. The price is around 500$.
