    Are the Acetal plates as strong and stiff as aluminum? How do they compare in cost to aluminum?

    No aluminium is definitely stronger. Compare 6061 Aluminum to POM-H

    If you compare the cost thickness to thickness it's very similar, but because alu is a bit stronger you wouldn't need such thick material.

    Using acetal also meant I didn't have to change too many fixings (which saved on cost) as well as machining time, and I could also call the project Halloumi.

    These are some of the best videos I have watched on this subject. VERY informative.
    How do I obtain the file for the side plates with the upgraded larger (oblong) holes for the c-beam?
