    Using OB parts store stuff what would I need for one of these if I prefer to use a direct drive mechanism over a Bowden? I don't think 2020 would be a wise decision when you have a big fat motor all the way to the side without support including the extruder and hotend as well.

    Any ideas on this?

    I think 40 mm x 40 mm vslot would be stiff enough to not see any deflection.

    Well, why the 40 in the Y direction as Well as in Z?
