    Hi, I'm in the process of designing my own CoreXY printer. Was considering using 3 Ball screws to control Z axis. The idea is they are each constrained top and bottom and will also act as the rails for the build plate. Would sync all three with drive belt. Would make the 3 nuts form a kinamatic system to allow for expansion of the build plate.

    Does anyone have opinions on this idea?
