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?

Bed heating will be with a custom made 240V heat mat from one of the online resellers. I forget the details, but they can do some pretty nifty setups for reasonable rates.
The bed is cast tooling plate, so it should be stable enough.
If not, mesh probing can get rid of the worst of it.

The hope is that with a fat nozzle, the first layer should take up most of the bumps.

If you want to reduce the consumption of this large bed heater your box should be a well insulated room.
I hope you find the best way to print your objects.

Hopefully going to be picking up on this again in the new year, now that things have settled down a bit.

Many new advances over the past few years, so there will for sure be changes made.

Big changes happening.

The XY gantry is being swapped over to the new HD12 version, all the motor mounts/bearing blocks have been printed in PETG, the shafts came in, and the last of the bearings come in today.

Pulleys/idlers are on order.

The decision was also made to go with the Mellow Hextrudort-Low instead of the BMG-Aqua setup.
The same maxiwatt hotend will be used.

In parallel with the HD12 change, motor choice for the XY gantry has changed to Rockwell Samsung CSMZ-02BA1ANM3 servos.
These are 200w 3000RPM rated, 5000RPM max and should be more than enough oomph.
Rated torque is 0.637Nm, max torque is 1.911Nm.

Fun times ahead, I'll get photos up soon-ish.
