I have blogged the build so far on my blog and docs site.
As you can see from the piccy the mechanics are almost done except for the Y axis. I am struggling to locate a suitable 2d drawing of the squashed frog that I can put hole centres on and extract dimensions from. Adrian and Erik have been helping with this so hopefully we will have a solution soon.
The Huxley is slightly oversize as it has been scaled up to take standard lengths of Silver Steel (Drill Rod in the US) as guide rails. The dimensions I used for the threaded rods have been added to the the wiki Huxley pages.
I guess a machine with a conveyor build bed could be a fraction of the size. as it doesn't need to layout too many parts per batch.
I wonder what the external dimensions of a standard Mendel would be ??
Erik de Bruijn said that he had mounted an automated build platform from makerbot on his Huxley, don't know if he's tested it yet.
More like 540 x 440 x 360.
I am design teacher in Singapore and is fascinated with the RepRap. I really would like to learn/build one machine to bring back to show my students, and teach them how to build their own RepRap next school year.
In November, I am travelling to UK and if any of you "Pro" RepRap builders in UK would be kind enough to take me through the process of building a Reprap, please email me.
I will pay for the all the RepRap parts & your time (qualifying- I only have a working project fund to use)
Please email me:
We can chat more via email.
Thank you very much. Q
