Not sure what shape I am going with I wanted to ration bars for mini mill and a 3d printer or 2 3d printers.

Please advise if there is a solid way as this is the typical box type. I didnt like the prusa and I wanted enclosed.

Over 60% of items have arrived so I am building. Its quite fun the way I have done it. I may do a Ebay group type order and take orders to get better price ect. "alot of people raping or waitibg to rape us believe me."

Theres obviously alot more. I have to get 2040 to finish and for mini mill but mot and car crap due so may be a while.

I will update when I can.

Soecial warning.

Only buy your metal online if it is apsolutely necesary. It can be 100x the cost otherwise so be warned.


My rods for 1m are £6 each online. 20p each in shop. I got 16 oieces cut and a bag of m4 m5 m6 for £5. Im warning you.

Take care.

Any advice on tft? firmware?

What other ways can I build this with less bars thats solid for 3d printing?

This is 500mm square. I wanted to do like a Tronxy X, crane type with 1m 2040 for the Z movement.

Is there any advantage of 2040 over doubling 2020?

Feel free to give opinions bad or good.

I am a newb.
