I am rather impulsive, and two things have happened recently that convinced me to build one:
I saw someone write “Happy Easter” on their table and I thought my kids would get a kick out of waking up to holiday/occasion messages, cool patterns etc.
I remembered that, buried in the garage behind the Christmas boxes, was a 3/8" thick plate of glass left here by the previous owner.
I then figured that I probably had enough laying around to complete MOST of everything else.
-I have a box full of NEMA 17 steppers and pulleys (at least 8) from abandoned projects and junked 3d printers.
-I measured my leftover gt2 belt from the Burly and I had a whopping 22FT
-I bought 100 bearings for the Burly
-I have a ton of filament, and it is cheap anyway.
-I have a control board and screen from my old Anet A8 clone
My only significant investment will be time. However I am choosing to go ahead with the V2 on account of its lower part count. Unfortunately that rules out the leftover bearings and possibly the board (need to find out here), so I will just need the POM wheels and idlers, and maybe a board.
I also discovered that my leftover EMT stash didnt have long enough parts, but that will be a grand total of $10.
I will use my Burly to make the table itself, though I am considering modifying an IKEA table, not sure yet.
I dont have anything to show yet, but I’m excited so I figured I would get a build thread started!
