The standard D-bot uses a 200x300x325 build area. This is larger than I need (or am allowed) so I opted to reduce the build to 200x200x225. I could have used another design, but having already built a full-sized D-bot for a local makerspace, I decided to stick with what I know.
I have already decided to include some changes to the original design. I am using three wheeled Z guides as well as Y guides. The initial build with utilize two Z motors but I will be quickly replacing them with a single motor, two screw design to eliminate misalignment. I am also using a different electronics/wiring routing method than the original D-bot guide. I want everything hidden behind the back of the printer.
A smaller version of a standard D-bot. Smaller to fit better in my workable area and to fit my vision for the printer.

Reason for this BuildI've wanted a 3d printer at home for some time. I've been using the ones at my local makerspace for the last two years but dislike the idea of leaving my prints unchecked while printing. With a printer at home, I can start it any time and check on it through the day/night.
