The Galileo 3D Printer

By on January 22nd, 2012 in printer


There is no shortage of 3D printer kits recently, as it seems everyone is now jumping on the RepRap model to develop improvements of one kind or another. We noticed yet another one today: The Galileo 3D Printer, featured on Instructables and designed by the KentStrapper team. 
While the Galileo is essentially a RepRap Prusa model, the improvements focus on “substantial changes” to the XYZ axes that permit both a larger print area and lowered implementation cost. Full instructions and parts lists are available at the Instructables link. 
There’s more: on their website, the designers say (in Italian) they’re now starting yet another 3D printer project called “Project Vertigo”.
