    This is really awesome! I was just thinking of building the acro system, but was refraining as it doesn't have a Z axis.

    I'll be primarily using it to cut paper/cardboard with laser or a plotter cutting blade.

    Just curious, Do you think it can mill murals like these?? just works of art on foam or light wood maybe?

    Looking forward for updates!! Great job!

    Hi @yogeshnd. I don't think it will be able to do murals like that unfortunately. In foam — sure, but I don't think it could handle wood.

    I don't have any experience with milling, but I always thought there must be a reason those machines are always just much bigger and heavier than a 3d printer or a laser.
