Hypercube Evolution CoreXY 3D Printer

This is my build log for a Hypercube Evolution CoreXY 3D Printer. The goal for my machine is to be able to swap tool heads on the machine for different fabrication processes. At the end of this build we will have the following toolheads.

  • Bowden Print Head using original Hypercube Evolution Design
  • Direct Drive Print head based on the Prusa MK3 design
  • Laser engraver for etching and light material cutting
  • DC Spindle for engraving and cutting wood

Parts Used:

As I am building this printer at the moment the link below shows the parts used in each build part. Because I am building this machine and tweaking the design as I go the parts used at the end may differ to what was used at the start.

When the build is complete I will go through and put together a parts used list. Keep in mind this is specific for my printer and your build might need more bits!
