Wanting to buy/build 1000mmx1800mm X-Carve


I am about to pull the trigger on a new loaded x-carve package, but want to get one with a 1000mmx1800mm footprint. I will be using the x-carve to cut and mill 1/4" to 1/2" acrylic for prototype aquarium filtration systems (sumps, overflows, etc…).

I have already purchased the new x-controller and know that I will need to pick up a couple 1800mm rails for the y-axis. What I am not sure about is what other items I will need in order to use the 1800mm rails.

So, I have a few questions:

  1. If needed, what cables do I need to get and what lengths?
  2. What length of gt2 belts do I need to get?
  3. What size and length of additional drag chain do I need to get?
  4. Is there anything else I need to get, aside from above?

Maybe talk to @JosephSmith

He’s got this one he’s selling:

Thank you, I sent him a PM.
