    Interesting. Have you looked at replicating the OrdBot? Pretty simple design that uses extrusions very similar to OpenBuilds extrusions.

    I have seen the OrdBot, and yes you could do it with OpenRail. Do you have any experience of the OrdBot?

    The i3 has a large ecosystem surrounding it, it's easier to rework something when there is a lot of development going on around it.
    ex: My i3 thingiverse collection: http://www.thingiverse.com/Bobnet/collections/i3

    My idea is to use a OpenBuilds build plate, replace the lower body with V-Slot & use synchromesh ala Deezmaker.
    It's still all drawing board stuff.

    I am modifying the BOM for the Prusa Wilson TS variant. I am going to have a build area of 10x10 x12. His spreadsheet allows you to set the build size and then creates the correct size of extrusions, rods etc. I want to go further and use the v-slot and build plate in my version.
