Hi sschueller,

i am really new in 3d-Printing, but this is that fascinating, that i plan to build my own 3d-printer.
Studied a lot of concepts So Corexy an Rails seems to be the best solution for an self buld Printer..
E.g. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3382718
But i always wondered about the 2020 Profiles under the X-Rail, are they not stiff enough?
You proofed they are! Thanks alot.
The less the weight of the moved parts, the faster or accurate, it will work in my opinion.

At the moment i´am not sure about the size ( 300300400 or 400400500 Build Volume ) and i collect any knowledge i can find.

So many Information, ideas, concepts and parts to collect and think about.
E.g. https://zesty.tech/ Nimble or the Sidewinder, or the upcoming Duet 3!
Therefore i´ll probably won´t start this project before October this year.
The result i´ll share under the same Licence that Ben Levi uses.

Greetings from Germany
