The name Cheetah was selected due to the speed of the 3D printer - it is about 10 times faster than regular printers - The build area is 1 cubic meter. So as you can see - the Cheetah should rather not be compared to a regular 3D printer. It is designed to make functional products. Chairs, bowls, lawn mowers or whatever we want to make. Please note with a 3mm build height very small products cannot be made. Small 3D printers are very good at that. Use a machine for its strengths and what is was designed for.
The size and speed of the cheetah 3d printer make it a unique 3d printer. This printer opens up the word of 3d printing to include real life working products. like those that was shown with the lawn mower, vacuum cleaner and shoes. The cheetah prints with granules, which makes it a lot cheaper than filament printers. The flow rate through the 3 mm nozzle is also a factor 10 faster than through a 0.4 mm nozzle.
Speedy is a stepper motor controller based on the awesome open source hardware CNC controller board SmoothieBoard. Speedy was developed as a request from RoboBeast and RepRAP Morgan. They required 32 microsteps / step with fast decay. The board is based on an NXP LPC 1769 32bit Cortex-M3 running at 120MHz.
The PCB layout was completely redesigned with added ESD protection including some subtle changes.
The stock SmoothieBoard firmware is used.
