Been working on a new 'what can I build with these leftover parts' printer.
It seems to be turning out well.



It is a 3D printable variation on the Flying Skydelta with the steppers relocated to minimize the offset and error from wrapping, and you can remove the vertical rods for 'flat packing'.
The whole frame will cost you ~$9 as it's made from driveway markers.

Planned on using Machinekit/tripodkins on a BBG, but not very far on the configuration yet.

Open source project modeled in OpenSCAD. Source and more pictures/video here:

Added virtual pulleys to the end effector to physically cancel the error from the upper pulleys.
