MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
I will have to wait until I have a higher paying job before I can even start building my own, because it's just... quite expensive. haha. But I am also considering finding companies to pitch it to in order to see if they are willing to pay for one ;) I'm actually debating building a variation of one using the random parts I have, just to test the concept though. Could be fun.
I want to get the v2 of this design up soon because it will also be more budget friendly. I actually modified the locations of lots of things so that you could technically build this using.... I believe I stuck with all 2080 extrusion because it's the closest to the width that I went with on the top plate of this design.
The E3D design does allow you to tension the belts after assembly, but it's a weirdly complex assembly. In mine you would have to loosen a part to tension, so it's not quite as stiff.... however, my assembly could be 3D printed or CNCed on a 3 axis mill as 1 part, where you'd need 3 custom parts for the E3D setup. All milled because they're more fragile.
Glad you like it though! Hopefully it is useful to people.
