I'm Chris from YouTube and that's my OP C-Beam XL build. For now this is just a build diary but further down the road when I acquired more knowledge and skill I'll try to film a few good rundowns and tutorials.
OP stands for overpowered because the massive steppers will probably annihilate the tiny lead screws if I ever run into an error.
