I can’t stop building 3d printers

I’ve rebuilt one of my Prusa i3 printers into a RepRap Wilson:

RepRap Wilson


It’s… fine. The Wilson has more build height and looks cooler, and has a better Y axis (except giant printed parts). Unfortunately it isn’t what I was looking for to have an easier printer to do a build weekend for. It’s not easier to assemble than an i3, and printing the parts is about the same or more time consuming.

The hackerspace now has access to a laser cutter that can do 6mm melamine without problems so I want the next printer we have a build weekend for to have more laser cut parts. I’d also like to build a Core XY machine. Here’s what that looks like so far.
