    Of course.
    Ball Screws, End Support and HIWIN linear rails is from BST Automation at Aliexpress.
    The Z Axis is from microcarve on e-bay.

    Looks great. Thinking of upgrading my stainless OX... 2.2KW spindle is a bit on the heavy side for stock.

    Is that a 2505 screw or 1605?

    2005 and Nema23's? How are your steppers handling it in terms of speed?

    Asking because I'm in the process of building a 1500x1500 and I have oversized and bought 2505's for my Nema 23.


    Thanks!

    How are the 3d printed motors mounts holding up? how many perimeters/infill did you use? I'm tossing up between 3d printed vs Spacer shafts.

    I don't have this machine but mine is also homemade. My motor mounts are printed from ABS+, are 20mm thick and I printed them with 3 perimeter and 40% infill. I have both NEMA 23 and 34, 2 of each.
    So far I have no issues at all but I have to admit I don't clock many hours of operations on my machine.
