Did you print this in PLA or PETG?

PLA for stiffness

Just an observation, why not rotate that support bar, have it go from left to right instead of up down, and install that motor closer to the center? Obviously some of your printed parts would need a slight redesign.

How about two large gears connecting those two shafts ? Just thinking it might be better to eliminate belts as they are problematic in my humble opinion.

sorry I dont understand what you mean.

I forgot the middle GEAR.... Oooppss

Why do you need new leascrews?

Because the stock ones are too short for this setup.

For the extrusion, shouldn't it be 460mm?

I think you are right and i just made a typo. Ill check tomorow

I have changed the designe for 60T pulleys. And yes its 460mm extrusion :)

How happy is that one Nema17 with lifting all that? Just out of curiosity?

It's effectively 2:1 geared, it shouldn't have a problem. Hbot, he go etc all lift heavier plates on a single motor

it is now 3:1 so that nema17 is bored. 1200steps/mm
