Started construction on ZXY axis

A project log for Simple & Cheaper CNC Shaper

I love the Shaper Origin, it could solve many needs for the home maker and care taker. But at the price many can't afford it.

I have build the Z, X and Y axis for the shaper. The z is build using the mostly printed CNC Z. It is probably too tall but I wasn't certain what the max height would be so I will wait till then to trim it. As for the X and Y it was made out of wood and primitive tools (jig saw, router and sander) so it is not a very tight fit but it will work for a proof of concept. Next I need to 3D print the encoder mounts as well and the X and Y motor mounts.
