Humebeam has finished his first version of Icarus - a light weight extruder based on the Orbiter drive.
As we have discussed several versions like:
- light & fast - could be now the Icarus instead Herkules
- standard & normal daily use - as sold in the shop
- robust & reliable for extreme conditions - with more torque using 1.8 degree special extruder stepper and bigger fan
the light version might be based on Icarus - I think it makes no sense to tune the Herkules one, if there is a special lightweight design available.
If there is interest I might build an Icarus as well and support community building them.
Here the link to the Ali shop in case you want to buy the Orbiter yourself:
