[Update: added holes for tensioning screws to Z rollers - Z Roller Left.v2.1.stl and Z Roller Right.v2.1.stl ]
[Update if you use 0.4 mm nozzle to print Z Rollers please use 3/8s washers for the middle bolt]
[Update added alternative version of X Rollers "XRoller alternative US.stl" This is mainly targeted at large bed printers to increase stability along Y axis]
[Update: Z2xCorner and Zbasemount were updated to version 2.1]
[Update: ZRollers were updated please download and reprint them]
[Update Just found an error in Z2Xcorner stl files uploaded a newer version, if you already printed them and the joint bracket is not fitting you will need to file out from the bottom about 0.6mm]

My Interview to Matt Snow at ERRF 2018 https://youtu.be/ybxNmI4ZSYw.
Piper 1 3D printer is highly scalable, self-replicating 3D printer.
It may have a bed size as small as 100×100 mm and as large as 500x500mm.
Its linear motion system is built on cheap 1/2 inch conduit pipes, which cost 3$ 10ft in the US. So if you want to expand your printer’s bed – spend 3$ more and cut new sizes (do not forget that you will need new belts as well).
This is version 2 of Piper 1 3d printer. Original may be found at https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2794632
Changes made in version 2 are targeting to improve joints against snapping along layer separation. New joint with joint bracket is solving the problem.
New instructions for Metric and SAE system builds are published at https://piper3dprinters.com
