A project log for SecSavr Sublime [gd0036]

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

I think the design of the Y Slider went well. It should do the job of clamping the X axis tubes and look sleek doing it. I made sure that the X tubes were aligned with the Y tubes so that there would be no additional height lost because the X slider is sticking out.

I've been coming up with a solution for the X/Y motor containers and how that would affect the mini Z axes, and I've just thought of something: XY motors inside the Y axis sliders. This should get more usable X while skipping the need to have pulleys to get timing belts around the X tubes for the Y axis motor. Hopefully I can make it look better too.

Wait. This could mean that I can have the Y timing shaft hiden away INSIDE one of the X axis tubes! I must try this.
