I'm considering making a mashup of this and an Itopie (mdf based prusa frame) but using two steppers on the x and Y instead of the idlers. I was wondering though, why do you think you are limited to 10mm/s. Is it that the motors don't have enough strength to move the carriages faster than that or that the speed itself is the issue? My hope was if you made the printed GT2 pulley a larger diameter and used 2 steppers instead of one maybe we could get closer to a normal printing speeds goal is 40mm/s (your thoughts?)
