I am looking into building a XY plotter by using contraptor, but I would like to build it a bit bigger than the examples I've seen so far.
What is the maximum size I can get by using the parts in the kit? I would want something that is able to plot in A3 or even a bit bigger if possible.
A3 format fits in 18"x12" envelope, which is a work area of an XY plotter made from 24" X angles and 18" Y angles. This would be a custom kit though, please send me PM if interested.
From the available kits (LMkA and SkA) it's possible to build a plotter with the work area of 12"x6", and an extra belt will make that 12"x12".
Sorry for the delay. I'm working on the assembly instructions for 12"x6" plotter, from there it will be a snap to make it 12"x12". The design would be exactly the same except the Y axis would be 18" long instead of current 12". The Y belt would also change from 280XL to 400XL.
