Most existing 3D Printers are using threated rods to enable the movement in the 3 axis. However the printing volume is limited with this technology. Therefore we tried to build a modular 3D Printer that uses belts and a modular assembled frame instead, which can be up-/or downscaled by adding or removing structural parts.

In our project we mounted the X and Y axis on a modular platform which can be raised up by the Z axis to print the different layers.
