I am looking at building a very large version of this printer. We are talking about 650x650x650mm large. So massive, but my problem is that this would make the linear rods have a length of 800mm, 760mm, and 750mm. So if I did this steel shafts wouldn't work right? Would carbon fiber rods work if I used the IGUS bearings or would they defect as well? Or should I look into a system like the D-Bot? I like that this printer is more well developed but before I go drop 900 dollars on parts, I wanna check if they are actually gonna work first.
