    Oh man. I know this thread is about my printed printer but I showed that white Z06 here and look what came in today..



    In anticipation of what is to come I parked the z06 on the dyno roller when we closed for the day..




    When this is done it should pull and sound very similar to this:

    And when I pulled the car out of the shop in the morning I parked the c6 right next to my c5..



    Making my corvette look good. Not that my corvette is anything less than the best. Here is the crate lsx engine swap:

    And the diff swaps are here:

    And aside from the gear change there was also a trans swap here:

    The track springs went in here:

    I am proud to pronounce my accomplishment that my corvette builds 476hp on 87 octane gas. and I get over 20mpg on the highway.

    I drew up my own z axis motor mounts and I will draw up the top mounts after these are done printing. Here is the left side..



    I put some extra material around the linear rod to make sure it stays tight. And I also put an angle on the backside so it hugs the side of the frame and has extra stability..



    Here is the assembled x axis with e3d v6 hotend..



    I can't put the x axis on until the rh z mount finishes printing, but here is where I am at now..



    It's starting to look like a printer. The long linear rods for z are intentional. I am going to make the top supports in such a way that this printer will get more build height.

    actually 20 american mpg is pretty good - you guys have such little gallons that it always sounds awful.
    so 24mpg in real gallons.

    Not exactly stunning, but for a totally impractical car - not bad :-)

    Printer is looking amazing.

    what board and control panel/screen are you going to use ?

    I upgraded the control board and screen on my GEEETech i3 just for a touchscreen. So those parts will be going in here. This printer will get this gt2560 board..



    And it will get the reprap discount 12864 screen that is in my hand in the below pic..



    haven't figured out where and how I want to mount them just yet. but we will get there soon.

    I got x y and z linear rods all in place. Still need leadscrews and top mounts for the z and belts for the x and y..

    I made the top mounts like this so everything will be tight and secure..



    Where the bottom mounts wrapped around the side the top support can wrap around the side and the top.

    Here is all the printed parts assembled. I have never posted up anything on thingiverse but I feel I should share the extra files I made to complete this printer..



    all axes move free and smooth. When the x carriage is all the way up on the z there is sway fore and aft of the frame that I know will show in print quality so I will design the power supply mount and mainboard mount to also be supports for the frame. Still a little ways to go.

    So the next thing I need to draw up and print out is a mount for the gt2560 control board. Here is the space I plan to mount the control board..



    Hopefully my design will add to the rigidity of the frame. Here is my design in autodesk..
