I’ll be using the 525-23.5 build, everything printed in PETG this time instead of PLA, with a working area of 2’ by 6’ for sign making. On a 4’x8’ sheet, this gives me about 13 inches in both dimensions for power supply, RAMPS, laptop, tool cases… I finally got real RS bearings instead of those heavy-grease 608-ZZ’s, so I should be able to print in colder weather. I’ll probably support the long spans at three positions, about every 20 inches.
So, to the table: The option of hoisting it to the ceiling to free up space is appealing, so I need a torsion box to keep the surface rigid. Although unfinished, is there enough cross-support here, or should I add another set in the short (4’) direction?
The material is 1/4" OSB, because it’s cheap and so am I, but I will be topping it with a good MDF spoil board.
More questions to come, I bet…
Thanks Ryan and all!
