About

Hi, my name is Perry Posthoorn I'm a mechanical engineer living in The Netherlands and I own a TEVO Tarantula 3D Printer. It’s an awesome printer because it prints quite nice after first assembly already, but more because you can upgrade just about every single part of the thing. One of the most popular upgrades is to replace the acrylic parts with aluminium parts. These were already offered by Isaac Fankhauser, who did a great job at drawing all the parts. But I looked at the Y-Carriage with my engineering eyes and thought that a lighter and stronger design would be possible. So I redesigned the part and showed the design in the Facebook group. Interest was huge so I organised a group buy. It was a great success and after showing the finished result there was a lot of demand for more. To make the ordering process and administration a little easier I set up this shop so anyone interested can buy the nice laser cut pieces of aluminium. There was also a lot of interest in the other parts so I redesigned all acrylic parts of the printer to optimise them for cutting out of aluminium. On this website you can find the individual Y-Carriage but also a full set of aluminium parts for the entire printer.

Thanks for stopping by and happy printing!
Perry
