Gary and I spent some free time at work over the last few weeks building a 3D printer for IUSB. It is a delta style printer, that is made right here in Goshen, Indiana. We got the Rostock MAX v2 kit from SeeMeCNC. It was suppose to take about 20 hours to go through the 200 page assembly manual, but its hard to tell how long it took as we could not work constantly on it. If I was doing another, I am sure it would take half the time we spent though, as we took it slow. Oh and another GREAT thing about this printer, it is opensource! The printer has a HUGE build area(11″ around 14″ tall), and after some tweaking we got it to build very fast. Oh and it is a blast to watch a delta bot in action!
