Hey guys, I was wondering round the internet again last night in search for another 3d printer. I found this which is pretty much exactly what I was looking for but its a little big. How hard would it be to scale the Eustathios down to around an 8-10" build volume?

Also, you kiwi guys, where are you sourcing your parts? From my understanding misumi doesn’t ship to nz

If you want to scale it down, know that these builds kind of have a grandparent in the T-slot-tantillus design/tantillus.

What do you mean?

Maybe your looking for something like this? http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:513955

@X_Copter – this is the Ingentis/Eusthathios’ grandparent (the printer their designs originated from): http://forums.reprap.org/read.php?279,190661

You can source most of your parts from Aliexpress. I’m an ex-Kiwi, but order stuff for my Dad in Paraparaumu and for my daughter in Wellington all the time.

You might have to get a friendly American or European for the gears, though, I haven’t seen any with an 8mm/10mm hole, but then I wasn’t looking.

Extrusion is pretty cheap, as are all the fittings, motors, controllers, etc. certainly a lot cheaper than Misumi.

I’m looking for something a bit larger than that Gus.

So, I’ve decided I will build an identical replica of the Eustathios except I will be scale it down to 250x250x250mm build volume.
What’s the original build volume (need it to be exact as I will use this to work out how many mm to take off on the parts)
Anything I should look out for?

You can buy bearings from @Derek_Schuetz He has a bunch that will be useful to you. At half the size I think what he has will fit the bill.

Robotdigg has most what your looking for the only exception is the 10mm is bearings

Oh and whats the difference between the two versions of xy axis in the BOM?
