I ran across some 2060 extrusions the other day and thought to myself, I might be able to join them together to make the gantry of an Express XL. I have a 3d Printer and thought that I could print a lot of my own parts. So this got me going down the rabbit hole of wondering how much I could print and how much I could buy. I get that the parent company puts together kits for us and I’m all for them existing to make a profit, but heck, it’s not open source unless people tinker right?
So my question is this. Has anyone taken the time to take the Express version and export everything to STL? I would of course make the gantry out of the extrusions and the motors would be purchased (or repurposed from old 3d printers)
I see that the CAD models are on OnShape, but I’m a bit novice with that site and CAD models to begin with so before I go and learn some new software which I frankly don’t have the desire or time to do right now, is there a repo of just STLs?
If someone wants to partner with me, I’m open to collaborating.
