    Morning all, good to be here!

    I have some ideas about building my first Ex.Alu printer with a cube frame, and was considering using the C-Beam for the z-axis. In short, by either securing the beams themselves to the top and bottom horizontal edges of the cube or to another vertical strut.

    From the mounting points on the C-Beams I attach the y-axis gantry.

    Would the C-Beam provide enough accuracy via the lead screw and rubber wheels? Would the wheels create too much resistance to be effective?

    Cheers for the help!
