Root 3 LITE!

Current Version = R3_LITE_1
The Root 3 Lite is base from the R3 standard version but one a smaller desktop size footprint. R3 Lite uses 20mm box section instead of the 25mm box sections used on the Root 3 and Root 2 machines. It is aim toward the light works loads than the its bigger brother but dont let the small size fool you - this machine is very capable.
Key design decisions:
1- use only NEMA 17 stepper motors - I wanted to try and keep this machine fairly standard to easy new comers to the CNC arena.
2- Use standard 3d Printer parts
3- lighter weight Carriages - I would like to try and turn this into a 3D printer in the future.
Please if you build one, post some photos! I would love to see them!

-Strength is key! use the hardest settings possible
-Print with 3-4 perimeters
-Print with ABS but PLA will be fine though your mileage may vary
