QuadRap started at GitHub with a strap version that did not include any printed parts: only cut and drill aluminum consumer profiles.
Its first main characteristic is the corner connection that is low cost but very rigid and self aligned.
Second is using twin steppers for each of X and Y what allows very long spans without heavy and expensive shafts.
Third is that it run all on wheels - sliding and linear bearings are avoided but allowed.
It has proven to be much easy to build than other Cartesians delivering stunning quality of prints.
