Cartesian Printer – Research

After having done research throughout the web, the two printer that stood out that have a simple prusa style motion is the mendelmax 3 and lulzbot taz 6. Both are incredibly well reviewed and reliable printers. Both printers are different in certain ways. I love the use of vslot linear rails and the black anodized aesthetics of the design on the mendelmax 3 . For the lulzbot taz 6 the electronic box on the side is very neat and professional. On the lulzbot taz 6 the way that you detach the y-axis for transporting is very cool. A combination of the best parts of these printers would make a very good printer.

Here is a diagram of a Cartesian printer using what i think are the best features from both printer:
