I wanted to share this clone that I’m helping to build, under the expert supervision of Chris Geanious.
In light of https://www.lulzbot.com/cloning-lulzbot-products I’d like to make a few notes before I get started:
- This printer is a clone, it is not a product from the Lulzbot factory
- Lulzbot is a trademark of Aleph Objects, Inc.
- Source files for the Onodrim are available here https://github.com/supergeanious/onodrim
Chris makes topological terrain maps in 3d, and has been chopping them up into taz-sized pieces to print them. The idea behind the Onodrim is to increase the x and y axes of the stock TAZ build volume by 300mm each way to allow for bigger topographical prints, among other things.
The additional challenges here will be modifying the design of the y-chassis to accommodate the larger bed, designing a new bed plate and heating solution, and coming up with a system that will allow adjustment of the level of the bed while minimizing any warpage of the bed.
