BTW, are you using 8mm lead screw?

i'm using 30mmx 30mm aluminum extrusion and the Slot 8mm.

WOW very nice design. I have similar frame as yours, but i like your x idler and x carriage. Can you share the STL files?

Nice design! It looks like your z axis rods are arranged a little differently than mine. Would you mind posting a photo of your design?

Actually, basically everything is arranged differently ;). I bought this frame on ebay very cheaply and used it as an exercise in design. The goal was to hide all screws (basically only the 2 screws for the spool holder are visible) and to get the maximum build height possible, as my frame is not as high as yours.

I will publish once I find the time to do the wiring. I also want to take better pictures, but I've uploaded a sneak peek.

Thanks, you have some nicely designed parts.
