    I did not run into any collision issues with bolts either, use the correct length of bolt

    yeah i wondered how that would work out, I would just make it flat plate and use standoffs on the motor to get the jog for the pulley clearance. would be cheaper too

    You are right, flat plate and spacers would work, a good forming operator can do it, bend allowance has to be exact

    Good point on the flat plate with standoffs, cheaper and easier to implement.

    Revised my Z Gantry Plates again, I widened the distance between the wheels as you mentioned then realized I had the wrong NEMA 23 motor so I added the high torque version which required recreating the belt again too. This CAD stuff is a can of worms sometimes. Anyway, I think this should be the final version. Here are a couple of images.

    Good job bro...hope to see more videos how it cuts thin sheet, maybe with a feedrate around 6000-7000 mm/min....if the machine rigid enough also if the THC responsive too...
    btw mine has Nema 34, rack pinion, Hiwin LM guide, Gecko G201X, Powermax 65, Neuron THC, already ran to 7000 pierces.
    My next machine should be like yours, simple and works good
