FABtotum in da house

Finally, after waiting almost nine months, my new 3D printer has arrived!

The FABtotum is a hybrid machine which does both 4-axis milling and 3D scanning in addition to extruding hot plastic.

Back in August last year, when I ordered this machine, I was originally researching new architectures to implement on a new printer build. Then I discovered the FABtotum blog and one page in particular where they discussed different cartesian configurations and their pros and cons. The design decisions seemed really thought through and seeing they had recently finished a successful Indigogo campaign I read up on the rest of the design which also looked solid. It was time to try out a turn-key solution!

Currently I'm going through the calibration process so time will show if it delivers on it's promise.
