Huge progress!

This weekend I spent several hours building and made huge progress

Building the top frame. Note the extra 70mm bars temporarily inserted help make sure the gap is straight, and also that the 20mm wide spacer bars help you get the minimum 20mm overhang correct.

Completed frame with diagonals. All travel is smooth, all I need is to hook-up and test the motors and wind on the belts. On to the extruder!

Sweet progress, Renoir!

Renoir you make me jealous!

when you say all travel is smooth: can you push the y axis along by hand and it works smoothly?

mine jitters because I can't seem to push evenly....
