I was on the verge ordering parts to build a MendelMax printer when Bart first posted the original ORD Bot design.
After doing some quick napkin calculations to guess at MakerSlide sizes that would allow a build platform roughly the same size as the MendelMax, I put in an order at the MakerSlide store. (And found out later how lucky I was to get the order in while was in stock!)
I'm using the standard wheel carriage plates, and in the process of cutting out the motor & idler pulley brackets.
With luck, I'll be able to finish up and test the Z-axis tonight.
The build is definitely a work in progress, but I'm having a lot of fun figuring out how things will work.
Many thanks to Bart for creating MakerSlide & the ORD Bot design!
