A SCARA-style RepRap

June 17, 2013 - Comments - 0 comments

Here's a neat SCARA-style RepRap.  It was recently featured on ZDNet.  I think I've seen some of this being mentioned on the Google Plus 3D Printing Community (update: yup, actually, it was first posted at Adafruit) -- glad to see it's coming along nicely.  

One of the objections I had in my head about this design is that the printhead could sag as it reached further away from the mount.  The solution?  Move the Z axis to compensate.    Clever!
