    I would love feedback on this concept before dropping the cash on the components. Are two motorized actuators on the first axis necessary here? Can I safely save a little cash and just use pulleys for the right hand side? Is timing a problem if there are two? Any other challenges/problems I may not have seen/solved for yet?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    You can use belt and pulleys instead of a 2nd stepper, but the stepper would be a more reliable method than the belt.

    I have built it with the spare parts I got for something else. I had to flip the X axes upside down as I couldn't figure out how you had it mounted to the block spaces. It works, but shakes a lot over 500mm rods with the mini led laser testing mirror alignment. Going to try to use 20x40 when they come in and metal brackets instead of the pla I am using right now, so it's not finished yet.
