    hello,
    I'm currently building a top down printer and I want to implement a wiper system. I'm looking to use a mini-v or the belt driven actuator. The only thing is That I'm not sure how I would install it on the frame. The red line is where I would like to have the actuator installed.


    Would anyone have examples of an installation similar ? Any advice on the implementation of it? (I still need to figure out how to run it using nanodlp)

    Thanks for any help

    Andre

    Hello @AndreMerc If you want to keep everything enclosed within the frame (which I suspect you do) and you only have to move a short distance, I would suggest implementing the Nema 17 Belt and Pinion system
    There are example file to choose from in the Files and Drawings tab
