Nicholas Seward brought us Delta printer Simpson back in June, and now he is coming up with another innovative 3D printer, Wally.

Wally is a wall bot so everything is mounted on the wall. The idea was to make Wally as simple and low cost as possible, and use much less plastic and bearing than Simpson does, but has faster speed and better resolution.

After much community collaboration on the Google Group for Delta 3D Printers and RepRap forum, Wally was born.

 

Features:

  • No linear rails
  • 28 cheap 608 bearings
  • 12 unique plastic pieces (none require support)
  • Printable on a 150x150mm machine
  • Theoretical speeds in excess of 500mm/s
  • Theoretical resolution is less than 25 microns

Seward expects a production model of Wally will cost around $600, while a DIY version is about $450. He is currently working on beta machines, hopefully Wally could be launched on Kickstarter in December.
