An ultra high-quality kit that includes all frame related, aluminium plates and mechanical parts to build your CoreXY style printer from 300mm^3 up to 500mm^3, guided by the super heavy-duty MGN15 rails. Just add electronics and a few printed parts and you're set.

Feature highlights:
- Industrial-grade linear motion guided by the ultra-robust MGN15 rails
- Simple, elegant design with few moving parts
- Thick Bed Plate (4mm) to ensure a rigid, level surface
- Wide 9mm belts, for extra robustness

Product Description
With the evermore popular CoreXY printers growing within the DIY community, we noticed that it is very hard to get a good quality kit where builders can get all their mechanics in one place, with a good build guide. We also found that there are very few projects available that are fully OpenBuilds based. We want to change that.

With the V-Core Pro, we've designed a rock solid CoreXY type printer built like a tank. By using very few printed parts, and aluminium plates for both structural integrity and motion carriage parts, we've developed an Opensource design which we believe can be a great platform to build on, and that provides a very high-quality 3D Printer with great specs.

Includes:

- Frame and mounting accessories: Black Anodized aluminium extrusions, Black Anodized Corner plates & brackets
- All Aluminium plates: CNC milled structural and carriage plates in beautiful sand blasted black anodized aluminium
- Bed Plate: 4mm thick anodized aluminium bed plate included
- All Motion components: all MGN15 Linear Rails, Leadscrews, belts etc.
- Optional: Controller Boards, Nema17 Motors, Printed Parts in PETG, PSU

Specifications:
- Build Volume: 300mm^3, 400mm^3 or 500mm^3 (X/Y/Z) or optional custom sizes available
- External dimensions: 570x506x550mm (X/Y/Z) for 300^3 version
- 9mm GT2 Belts
- Compatible with Nema17 Motors(available as optional add-on)
- Dual Z lead screw design with anti-backlash nuts
- E3D v6 compatible hotend mount
- Mounting point for a inductive bed leveling probe
- Open Source

Easy Mod:
-The easy mod is fast becoming "the next version" of the V-Core Pro. The main reason is that it opens up a world of possibilities regarding your extruder choice, via the EVA platform by Paweł Kucmus. See here:
-https://pkucmus.github.io/EVA/
-https://github.com/pkucmus/EVA
-So if you're looking for a top notch extruder setup compatible with E3D Titan, E3D Titan Aero, E3D Hemera, Bondtech BMG and more with great cooling and much better center of mass, EVA is the way to go.

-Note:
Although EVA documention is complete and available, documentation for the Easy Mod mechanical section of the V-Core(X/Y axis only) is still in development, you will need to rely on a CAD file + Standard V-Core manuals.
