    Plans for large 3d printer?

    I currently have 2 prusa i3 based printers that print around 200x200. Im looking for some plans for a new printer that will allow me to print 350-400mm atleast 1 way both would be preferred.

    if anyone can point me in the general direction so i can get started on building and getting all the electronics in to build a new printer.

    Thanks

    Troy

    My son just built a Wilson 2, I think it prints 200 by 300. It is like a Prusa i3 in Steroids (we have three i3s), build is very beefy and prints very well.

    At Hyrel, we just announced our larger format printers, with up to 600x400x275mm (X/Y/Z). See http://3dprintboard.com/showthread.p...-from-Hyrel-3D

    Last year I built a C-Bot, 12x12", by 21" tall (totally configurable, that's just what I chose). Great project:

    My son just completed building his new Rostock MAX v2. (I knew he could not come back from the Midwest RepRap Convention without a new printer!) Took a good bit of time but it is built like a tank and is solid as a rock! They give you everything but the two extruder fan shrouds....those are the first prints you have to do. So this is print number one, the extruder tube fan. Resolution and finish was awesome! Build volume is HUGE!

    I apologize for the sideways pictures, they show correctly on my computer and phone?
