Re: Another attempt at combo 3D printer/laser/mill

good lord - they want enough for it, dont they??

I could get 6 of the FolgerTech FT-5's for that much money!

SD4 #1 - Lawsy carriages, E3D v6, Rumba controller board, mirror bed plate, X motor fan & upgraded PSU & Mica bed heater
SD4 #2 - basically the same as SD4 #1 now... wink
Folgertech 2020 Kossel kit with reprinted plastics and top mounted bearing spool feed
Folgertech FT-5 - in progress... (sold the 2020 Prusa)

I notice they claim "no belts". I wonder if it's rack and pinion or how exactly it moves. For any non belt system to have high speed and low backlash, I don't doubt the thing would be expensive. I just wonder why they chose to go that route.

I think I recall reading that is is rack and pinion. And, yeah, n2ri, one would be advised to use caution, eh?
