This weekend most of the parts have finally arrived and so I started the build.
|The Y Assembly|
Upon investigation I found that the DXF file I originally used was wrong. Fortunately the others were OK, so I only have to get that plate re-cut.
Serves me right for forgetting the old adage 'Measure twice, cut once'. In this case, check that the dimensions make sense before sending the DXF off to be cut.
So project is back on hold until the reworked plates arrive.
I had the laser cutting done by 4D Modelshop in London. An excellent service and really helpful to a novice in Laser cutting. I highly recommend them.
More once the new Gantry Plates arrive!
