With printer of this size and you could easily convert to to light duty CNC :)

I already have a big home made CNC router. 2000x780x180 mm range. The Mammut would be great for a laser. The Mammut can be made to any length or width too by using different length tubing.

what is the print volume on this?

Mine is about 500x800x480 mm. 192000000 mm³, or 11970 in³. The volume can be anything you like, depending on the dimensions you choose for the rails and tubes.

Printing huge volume isn't very practical though. A big printer is most useful for printing items that are very long or very tall, for example. Printing something that is long, tall and wide, with big volume, will take many days.

thats awesome..other than the small parts that I can print now..How much did the rest of the parts cost? I would love to build this printer. Many times I have wanted a larger print volume. but having a small printer I have to redesign it so I can build it in sections and then lock them together. This would be great!!

I really have no idea what it cost. I built it because I had the parts lying around from various other projects.

well it looks pretty cool.. I use a site called gearbest..they have all the parts electronics and motors belts... some parts I will have to make myself just because they are huge. I will let ya know how it works out for me. Nice job!!

Thank you for clearing the outer steelpipe with holders, I had not understand that those pipes were with included alubars. I've welded a frame and moving table last week, already sent it to yellowcrome last Friday. Have drawn my own smaller plastic parts since I'm using 16mm pipe instead of 19 just because I have them in my shop. One little question, can you send some pictures of the moving bed's underside ? How many plastic parts with 4 bearings would I use ? 6 pcs ? Will surely fix it myself but it nice with pictures. Can send you pictures of my welded version later - well if you want to see it that is.Thinking of using an alu.plate instead of glass since alu is better transporting heat for the bedd. If I use 4-5 mm it will surely be straight enough.

I used four of those plastic bearing assemblies. You can use as many as you like, but four should be enough. Three is going to be a bit wobbly with such a large size. It's not very accessible at the moment as I've made a mess around it.

Im building one, printing and ordering parts ringt now, one thing are 19mm shaft attached to frame (see picture no. 6 above). both outer sides. Can not hang loose down against the frame in the air ? Needs a holder or have I missed something ?
Also little hard to understand how 35mm fan are mounten on outer side (right in picture).
Per

The 16mm supported linear rails are attached to the frame with the black screws you see at the bottom end. I used six screws for each rail. Look at picture 12. It's important that these are supported rails, and not the free hanging rails.

The 19 mm tubes are secured at both ends.

The 35 mm fans are mounted with one screw each. They are difficult to find, so it's only relevant if you use those exact fans.

Great -Thank you. it's interesting to be a newbe. Learning every day.
Will print and get axles in coming weeks. Will surely take a month before it looks like anything.

Like this project - like to make one ! How do I diveide the STL file into parts ? Have Autodesk Inventor and a Prusa i3-your file are too big.
What to do Please Comment.

Your slicer should be able to do that. Delete the parts you don't want to print for each session.

I prefer one download over twenty when I download. :)

any chance you could put the stl up as singles.

I have uploaded them as singles now.

What program were these parts drawn in? Any interest in releasing source files or STEP files? Id like the design but if you'd allow Id like to make some changes.

I'd also like the source files, please.
