Wow - that looks good.

Thank you :)
Unfortunately due to technical issue, the plane is in many pieces and in need of serious repair so may delay the work on the laser on weekends, but not to worry, will work on it in the weekdays evenings :)

Con: Went home from work with a fever. Pro: Got time to work on the gantry ;)

Have now worked more on the y-carriage, should work the way it's modeled now.

Do you think I may have forgotten to think about something with its current design?

My technical issue is usually poor flying! The foam models are a lot tougher than our old stick built models. Some boiling water and epoxy will usually fix them up for another try. The quadcopters are a lot tougher than the heli's are. I have an HK450SS I will finish this winter.

It is looking pretty good!

Dont know what I forgot thats why I'm asking if something obvious faulty hehe.

Worked on the belt path a bit more today, seems like it should be possibly for sure!
Belt paths are identical with a 180 degree rotation, so motion from the motors should be equal.



And printed a prototype of the Y-carriage:

The design looks great, I don't see anything obvious wrong. I really like the printed carriage too.

Long time since I posted anything here, mainly due to lack of spare time to actually work on the project.
I have however received the 8mm shafts and test assembled the X-carriage, seem to work well.

Unfortunately, the QA of the shafts ordered on Aliexpress are terrible, 6 out of 8 are so bad I cant use them... have to wait another month to get replacement ones.
Too bad cant afford good ones to start with  :-[

Is it the finish of the shafts that is the problem or are they bent? I had some bent shafts in my Ultimaker2 3D printer. I printed some V shaped blocks and then using my dial gauge I was able to see where they were bent and from there I bent them back to within a thousands of an inch.

The finish does not look as good as the ones I have.

That is a work of art, looking forward to seeing the assembled machine.

Unfortunately they are bent for sure, 6 of 8 cannot roll on a smooth surface, they just wiggle back and forth  :-\.
Finish is also not great, but seem sufficient with the igus bearings.
