    Very nice build @bearwood !
    I like the way you did the short bowden set up on the extruder to keep the weight from the gantry.
    Is she as fast as she looks?

    Thanks Mark,
    Ha, you should have seen her with that Bulldog hanging on the gantry. Bowden tube was the only thing that made sense with that extruder.
    She was printing reliably at 60mm/s and will do better with some better tuning.

    @Tweakie
    That's Spectra fishing line, 100lb test. Basically no stretch and I'm using guitar tuning pegs to keep tension.

    @bearwood what firmware are you using? I am working on a CoreXZ build and have modified the Marlin firmware but waiting on some pieces before I can complete the build and test

    @Andrew Long Its a Marlin version that was hacked by Nicholas Seward. PM me with an email address and I'll send a copy to you (be prepared to hack some code :) )
    For Info I have retired this printer in favour of a corexy version which I have almost finished.
