    thanks, the main pillar for z axis is based on a 80160 profile that will be filled with epoxy/granite.
    side plates will either be steel or stainless steel. depending what i can source for free when comes time to build.
    i have 3mm stainless sheet ready to go but I would rather steel as its easier to work with.

    I'm interested in your 3D printed way covers... have you had a chance to try them? Do you have a rubber wiper between each section?

    If you don't mind, how about some more pics. I'm always excited about up-scaled versions of any machine, and this sure fits that title!!!
