+1 I want dxf too

Nice! How much have you paid for the whole frame?

It was quite expensive... I think it was about 250 € for the aluminium parts, some hours of work to put it together and sew it, and then about 200€ to blast it with glassperls...
But now the machine is ready to use for professional matters. I also mounted a heated bed and a second extruder. That makes it really great.

Thank you for the answer!

what is the thiknes of the aluminium and can i put the mottors in the original place ?

I used 6 mm material, as used for the original wooden frame

I like what you have done. I was thinking along the same lines myself. Can you save your files in Pro/E for WF4? I'd like to modify this to use standard stock available in North America (ie 1/4" x 2" and 1/4" x 5 or whatever) to minimize waste on the front, top and side parts as well as to be able to make it on my benchtop CNC mill which is not quite big enough to make the full outside dimensions
