    Well done @mytechno3d You have done a great job on this Build. I love the way you utilize so many different transmissions on this build.
    You have the lead screw driven Z axis and the the looped belt driven Y and the belt and pinion system on the X. Very cool :thumbsup:
    I hope your able to share the model and parts list.
    Looking forward to seeing it in action!

    Maybe something like these nema 17 plates could work on the Z and a 20x40 on the back side of the Z columns if they are needed to be connected.

    This is a beautiful printer from an aesthetic viewpoint. So clean and super sized at the same time. Awesome design/build.

    I think the C Beams are making a lot of us reconsider build possibilities. I haven't ordered any yet, but I keep adding them to my orders - and then taking them off :( as the order total gets near the national debt. ;)

    The first print was made yestereday.
    It is pretty good , and it will be better when i will add a fan to cool the printed parts and add a heated bed .
    2 little videos are available on the project page. I hope to upload better and longer videos soon.

    Great job, looks very professional too! Can you post the code for auto-level or post where you pulled it from?

    Looks good!! I noticed that you are using a capacitive Z Probe. Any issues with repeatability or false trips? I have been interested in adding Z Probing to my build. I also have a non-metallic build plate and so cannot use an Inductive sensor.

    Very nice design! After I use my OB CBeam plate cutter to make plates for a larger build I may retro fit these ideas to convert it to a 3D printer. Please keep us updated! Thanks
