Tommelise xy positioning stage...
I'm beginning to thing that I'm going to be able to extrude some stuff with this thing. I wasn't so sure before.
Heck, how could it move, it looks like you put crossbraces on the main support.
I'm impressed that the encoder stuff is all working well. Definitely a robust inexpensive design. I'd be curious to know if there were any modules that you can buy that might attach to the end of the rods. Detail soldering isn't THAT difficult, but it's something I try to avoid.
Yeah, there are. Problem is that one of the bleeding things costs more than what I want a whole Tommelise to cost. :-s
I always heard that whenever you make something it can be:
Of course, I have to get Tommelise running before I can make stuff like that. :-)
It's like each reiteration of a project can reach only two of the three goals, so two reiterations can achieve three of them.
I guess that's why my girlfriend's computer cost less than 10% my ancient (six year old) dual processor machine, and yet it renders 3D images over twice as fast.... They even have the same amount of RAM!
