Default Hlidskjalf, worlds first CoreXYU 3d printer

In June 2016, decided to buy a 3d printer.
Problem was, several printers had individual features that was on my short list. Unfortunately, none had ALL the desired features.

So... began working on a scatch build 3d printer back in July of 2016.
By August, had it pretty well modelled to start buying bits and pieces.
In September posted work in progress on Thingiverse:

Turns out, no one had built a dual X carriage CoreXY 3d printer.
Firmware was going to be a problem. Fortunately found help on the RepRap forums by coding guru dc42:

Still a WIP, though getting there. Hope to have it running by summer...


Here's a few WIP shots, and the kinematics:
