    Sweeet! wow @Kyo you have really taken this build to the next level. Nice job all the way from the use of the ferrules as well as overall wire management (10) to all the amazing 3d printed additions set off by great pics to showcase the work. Thank you for sharing the updated Sphinx build

    Really nice to see someone showing how attention to detail and good practice makes for a polished machine. Thanks for sharing.

    Hola Kyo and community!
    Thank you for this awesome build. I've been learning a lot about CNC and Openbuilds with the Cbeam Plate-Maker in the last 18 months and I feel that this would be the next step in terms of rigidity in a small form factor and fixed bed. It looks astonishing.
    I'm trying to find out the shortest route with the parts I have and in the end I decided to jump into fusion360 to do the puzzle with what I have and the ones I need to buy. I just have a couple of questions that I was not able to find the answer in all the Kyo remixes. Maybe somebody could give me a hand:
    - Is there any consideration in having the Y motors in front of the machine instead of in the back? That way I can "close" the machine with a sheet of something in the back and control a little the mess the machine does with aluminum shavings/wood plastic... I'm actually not worried with the front wasted space because I usually use that to leave tools and whatnot.
    - Is is possible to have the z gantry in a platemaker XL style? With 6 wheels outside and the cbeam moving with the tool instead of 4 miniwheels inside the C track. I'm guessing that it was a tradeoff between cuantity of parts and rigidity, but I am not sure. I am not a machine designer, just a cheap remixer.

    Thank you again and to all the community. I've been learning a lot the last 8 months!!
