Thanks for answering.
Now I understand better. I will try to take it to the measurements of the 3D model.
Keep in touch
Best regards!

Hi congratulations! It's a great job you've done.
At this moment I am building the same printer. As soon as I finish I will upload the photos.
Could you help me by telling me which axis corresponds to each of the measures of the profiles T-Slot 2020? Because they confuse me a little.
2020 T-Slot Aluminum Profile Extrusion (4x500mm, 2x360mm, 1x340mm).
Thanks in advance!

Thanks! I am glade you like it!
Sorry for the lack of precision of the description. And sorry for the mess I just realized that the description is totally false. But to be honest those dimensions can be slightly modified as you like during the assembly.
On the plans the sizes are:
Z: 50cm
X: 30cm
Y: 40cm

But during my building I modified that to reduce the number of cuts that I had to do You can see on real pictures that the pices are not assemble like the 3d model shows it.
Z: 50cm (but that it's as you want it)
X: 34cm
Y: 36cm

I am sorry for the lack of precision, I hope this answer will helps!
Have a great time building your printer!
