[T] Bed Holding Medium

A project log for SecSavr [gd0036]

A 3D printer that I describe as "The FULL Coverage, Extended X, Pro Max, Ultramatrix Solution".

I've just realised that the 55x60 cm tiles originally for the SecSavr Space are not going to work for this new SecSavr inside the SleepCinema due to the fact that the Z axis tubes are almost twice their length.

Using 42.4 or 27mm tube would cut a large chunk of Z height, so I'm thinking of using M12 or M16 threaded rod. I think it would be cool to design the SecSavr to only use M2, M4, M8 and M16 threaded entities, with the occasional M3 for electronics mounting. 

I'm also trying to compute a bed solution that uses up a minimal amount of Z height, and being able to use the space otherwise taken up by a tile could be benificial. Also, those tiles are heavy which, while may dampen oscillations, would be somewhat difficult to adjust to a different Z height,

I'm planning for the mount to either look like, or attach to, Key Clamp 179 which is fixed to the Z axis tubes.

I still have an idea to use the tiles on the bottom of the printer section for aesthetics, and maybe oscillation management.
