RepRap Lewis

RepRap Lewis was a design study for 3 axis motion with limited non-3D printable components. The design combined a SCARA arm for XY motion with a Sarrus linkage for Z, allowing for a cylindrical build area. While not mechanically ideal, this allows for minimal structural elements and a high ratio of printable area to machine volume.  The design was built using parametric deign in OpenSCAD and made use of the Magpie hardware library I developed. As parameters were changed, a complete Bill of Materials would be output.
