Thingiverse user dkennell brought us this tiny and compacted 3D printer, with a print volume is 120mm W x 100mm D x 65mm H.

"I designed the printer around two constraints. First, the high mass motors and extruder are stationary. This allows smooth high speed printing, as only the print bed moves. This keeps the forces on the slides low as well. This will also allow dual extruders on a very lightweight printer. Second, the slides are all integrated, using PLA bearing surfaces running on the extrusions. I wanted to try this on all the axes of a printer since it works so well on my Aluminum Mendel. It is self-contained, with power supply on board. It is very robust, and makes top quality prints." - dkennell

If someone could help with firmware dkennell will design a simpler version with MakerSlides. Let's waiting for further development of this cool machine.
