It's been on hold since the last post.
Spring/summer came in hard and heavy with a jet boat, camp, and work taking up my time and work taking up my friend's time.
Fall was work and getting ready for winter, electrical entrance replacement, etc.

The Y carriage ends got printed in resin and dropped off a week or two ago, and fit the CF tube pretty much spot on.

The hardest thing is going to be remembering where we left off. Luckily everything is exactly where it was in March, so parts/etc aren't packed away/scattered.

Plopped down the Y carriages and started belt stringup yesterday.

I'm a tad bit worried about the X axis skewing, the MGN12 rails and carriage seem to allow for ever so slight misalignment even when everything is rigid mounted.

Didn't get photos of the progress... :(

Hello, nice work.
I'm curious to see the final result!
How will you heat the bed?
How will you control the deformation of the bed with the heat?
