Anyone considered going vertical?
Might be possible using v-slot on the X with a spring balancer to take the weight off the Y.
Could be an interesting project…
I still need to get to sort the basics, just an idea that may or may not be worth sharing. Hopefully you can give me your opinion just to save me wasting my brain matter?December 3, 2018 at 4:01 pm #78076
There are a couple threads around here already discussing this.

I am working it now. Testing this weekend.

Curious how this will work out!April 13, 2019 at 12:38 pm #96906
I would love some links for those threads. I’m interested in doing this as well for the space savings.April 14, 2019 at 2:55 am #96967
Looks nice and tidy Jeff, very impressive. How will you take the weight off the x?
Another thought I had was to use the mpcnc rail on the X, lowrider on the Y with a ballscrew (removing the strain on the belt) then the Bosch POF 1200 from the Maslow on the Z.
It wouldn’t give much depth of cut but could be great for wikihouse or opendesk furniture projects.
A bit of a mashup of parts I know.
Babies have caused me to not have much time for it at the moment but it doesn’t stop me daydreaming for when I get the time.
I hope the test goes well Jeff.May 23, 2019 at 2:21 pm #101417
Just stumbled across this and similar to what I was thinking.
