Thanks a bunch !!
Yup, i too am designing the gantry to be driven from one side only. I am not sure how this is going to affect the motion...
Driving the gantry from the center is too much work
The reason i was hoping to use a smaller motor (48oz/in) for x-motion is because the x-axis stepper will also be hanging at one end of the moving gantry. I was not sure how a heavy 230oz/in motor that weighs almost 2lbs will affect the gantry.
Do you have any pictures that you can post on your XY travel system?
