    Hi!

    I'm planing to build an X, Y table. I want it to be a square of beams with a carriage in the middle. I want to drive it with two stepper motors. All it needs to be able to do is to position the carriage by X and Y axis.

    Anyone could give me suggestions on parts / construction?

    Example:
    This printer has an nice X Y system. I am open to any way of doing this! Openbuilds seems to have really nice and solid parts. I think by project could be made nicely of those...

    Thanks :)

    Thanks for reply! I looked at H-bot systems. But I get a little bit scared when it comes to controlling it, I use arduino atm to control other stuff in my mechanics. But I don't want it to get too complicated. The X Y table are going to be for sorting and can return to zero x y between every sorting. But if it is simple to do H-bot coordinates in arduino I think it would be a solution!
