    Very happy to say that filamentive have been kind enough to sponsor my D-Bot 3D printer build with a spool of PETg filament and they have also given me a code for you to get 15% off your order, use Jays3D15 at checkout. Thanks filamentive :).

    Thanks, also happy to say that Ooznest have been kind enough to supply the frame as well :). I'm getting (purchasing) all the fixing from a local place so that should be good for getting extra's. Got to look at what I've got here now to see what I need to buy. I'll be posting a build log if anyone would like to sub to my YouTube channel ;-).

    You could get more people to your YouTube channel if the videos are for the complete build.

    What do you mean? I will be making multiple videos of the build from looking at the printing/printed parts to the completed D-Bot.

    So what's the options for beds? The link UP posted for an aluminium bed has an option for 6082T0 or ecocast what's the difference?

    What do other have? Bed will be 300 x 300.

    Ecocast will be truer, as it's a cast plate and then milled flat. Perhaps not quite as flat as MIC6, but then it's a lot cheaper.

    How about something like this?

    Nice one dude :)

    Well due to my disability getting worse I can no longer finish off the rewiring of my D-Bot.
    So it's going in the shed and will have to buy a pre-built one. Shame really :(

    Think I'll go ahead with the cast aluminium but use a heat bed I currently have and when/if I want upgrade the heated bed I can.

    Might be a delay to everything for a short while as my dog has become very ill and it's not looking good .

    Back to it soon.

    Do we have any updated lists to help buy the its needed to make one, fancy having a go myself.

    Want a bigger bed than my CR10S for some upcoming projects, don't particularly need the height the CR10S offers.

    All the essentials remain the same, so no real updates are required afaik.
    Best advice I can offer is to go through the remix listings on the D-Bot page to figure out exactly what you want to build and then buy accordingly.

    @deuse @bulb66
    Sorry to hear the bad news. Hope things aren't as bad as they sound and the situation improves.

    Part 2 of my D-bot build is on my YouTube channel.

    I have a question for you all, if you were thinking about building a D-bot what would you want in a single video or series of videos? Would a video build manual be useful? Would videos for the RAMPS wiring and Marlin firmware be good?

    Let me know your thoughts,

    Thanks Jay.

    @bulb66 it's coming together :)

    Does anyone know of a good touch screen for ramps?

    I've bought a TFT32 and it works..well kind of. All the axes work bar the Z up.
    When using the TFT32 the motors won't get the table going up. But if I disconnect the TFT32 and use the PC all is ok?

    Maybe the ramps can't power it.

    ITS ALIVE!!!. My D-bot coreXY printer is finished and printing. Massive thank you to @filamentive and @ooznest for sponsoring the build. I'll be doing another 1 or 2 videos for the build series on my YouTube channel, then using it for cool new projects.
