My name is Grim Karltun.

I have designed a 3D printer exactly half the scale of the Ender 3.

The idea was first grown when i had trouble taking my Ender 3 to a event.

So now maybe a month later I am done with the prototype.

This prototype showed in the video is a early prototype and the design WILL be greatly improved.

It works with the same Linear V slot roller system as the Ender 3 does.

The extrusion in the frame is 20x20 millimeter and that means there is a lot of extensions already available.

The machine uses a E3D V6 (clone) hotend assembly.

All the parts will be carefully examined by me before shipping.
