    First off I hope this is the correct sub forum for this topic, if not admins feel free to move..

    Let me introduce "Adamantine" my lead screw all aluminum printer.



    Being the first complex project I have completed in Sketchup ( others have stalled as I narrowed down what I needed vs wanted ) and not having the $ right now to buy parts to pull dimensions from directly.

    I was wondering if any one more skilled with cad / sketchup then I. Could review my file for tolerances and proper dimensions ect.. ( specifically where wheel spacing and hole sizing is concerned. ) and bolt lengths / spacing ect. ect. I want to minimize errors and missing parts before posting the files to the builds section.

    Plus it never hurts to have someone else look over your files. A couple days swapping advice is a whole lot cheaper then having to have aluminum plate re-cut..

    I also welcome input on the hotend mount and the X carriage in general. Not 100% happy with that yet. I will be using a e3d v6 hotend.

    This printer will use solid V-Wheels. 20x60 and 20x40 V-slot and 1/4 and 3/8 aluminum plate. No belts all axis will run on the OB lead screws Speed is not a concern with this printer as it is intended for accurate smaller prints. With only the classic 8x8x8 build volume.

    If you interested in reviewing my beta file, just shot me a pm.

    Thanks for reading..
