Hi community. I just got my xcarve 1000x1000 and I am super excited.
I want to enhance the y-axis and faced the problems with the makershift extrusions, which are no longer supplied by Inventables themselves. After a long research I finally found a german supplier for those.
Cool thing: they supply it up to 6m. Yes. Six!
And now I am thinking about having my y-axis 3m long. (And yes, I was thinking about going fully crazy with 6 m length. But I guess now I just go half crazy.)
My question: Might I face issues with belt flexing on a length like that? I would upgrade to 9mm GT2 anway. Does anyone have any information or experience how the belts might flex (too much?) on 3m?
Thanks in advance, I am happy to be part of that awesome community!
