This is a simple cantilevered 3D Printer. It is designed around the OB V-Slot linear rails. I am trying to simplify this as much as possible, all rails will be 250mm long and only one will require cutting (it will be cut in half).

I am not set on electronic as of yet, but plan to use a single control board...no Arduino/Ramps control.
