Info

Alubot aims at beeing one of the easiest 3D printers to build at a low cost, and uses the concept of Reprap to do so. Alubot consist of 7 equally long t-slot aluminium extrusions, 10 90degrees brackets, 4 smoothrods, 2 threaded rods, 5 motors and more. Alubot is easy to scale, by adjusting the length of the aluminium extrusions, smooth rods and the threaded rods. but i would still advice to build the printer for a printarea of 20x20cm for a first time builder.
