This is a CoreXY 3D Printer and CNC. (Last updated - 22nd May 2019)
Upgrade your 3D Printer to this frame! Re-use your motors, electronics, hotend, heatbed, etc...
Watch how the HyperCube came to be:
I wanted to reduce the weight of the moving mass as much as possible. As the entire X-gantry is moving in the Y direction, the rails for the X axis should be light too. I chose to use 10mm anodised aluminium tubing, which is half the weight of 8mm steel rods.
And have since moved to Carbon Fibre tubes, which is one eighth the weight of 8mm steel rods.
Marlin 2.0 Configuration.h and my built firmware.bin files attached.
T-Slot 2020 (Slot/Type 6) Aluminium Extrusion Profiles for X200 x Y200 x Z155 print bed area
(Note: If you intend to make a larger print area, then increase the length of the 2020 extrusions AND rods for each axis by the difference)

X-Axis 10mm Anodised Aluminium alternatives
If you can't find 10mm x 360mm anodised aluminium tubes for X axis, and besides using Carbon Fibre tubes, there are 2 alternatives:
HyperCube XY_Joiner for 8mm rods on X-Gantry
X Carriage Mod for 3/8" Rod and Bearing for HyperCube 3D Printer

- Z Endstop v1.1 for revised bed configuration.
- Z_Motor v1.1 and Z_Shaft_Clamp v1.1 for bottom mounted motor
- Fan_Duct v1.1 with extra clearance for E3D silicone socks
- Fan_Duct v1.2 for easier bridge printing
- X-Carriage v1.1 provides extra support to belt mount.
- XY Joiner/Clamp v1.1 supports longer bearing LM8LUU and dual LM8UU bearings.
- Configuration.h files updated to Marlin 1.1-RC8
- Removed old file versions. Can be found here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2013921
